Rush were the runaway stars at the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony last night. And one of the show's highlights found the trio onstage with two members of the Foo Fighters, who performed the final minute of '2112''s classic 'Overture' with the newly inducted band. Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins even dressed in vintage Rush outfits -- Grohl as Alex Lifeson and Hawkins as Neil Peart -- complete with wigs.
Well, it finally happened, Rush fans -- the legendary Canadian power trio is finally, officially, ensconced in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Dave Grohl may have phrased it best in his induction speech for the band, when he asked the audience in mock puzzlement: "When the f--- did Rush become cool?"
As if finally being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame weren't enough, the members of Rush are receiving another high honor. The Canadian progressive rock trio have been chosen as one of a series of rock acts featured in the Canadian Recording Artists stamp series, issued by Canada Post.
As one of the most successful and influential bands of the last 40 years, Rush's music and lyrics have long been the subject of literary scrutity. Now, a new book takes a further look at why they have been so important.
While some of us might still like to think of the guys in Rush as being musical wizards who exist out of time, they're actually regular guys who enjoy regular guy things -- like baseball fan Geddy Lee, who had the honor of throwing out the first pitch at the Toronto Blue Jays' home opener on Tuesday (April 2).
Longtime Toronto Blue Jays fan and soon-to-be Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Geddy Lee will take the mound on Tuesday (April 2) to throw the ceremonial first pitch at the Blue Jays' home opener. The Rush bassist and singer is a season ticket holder and dedicated fantasy baseball player.
Leave it to legendary Canadian band Rush to change things up even after all these years. After having performed live as a trio for the past 40-plus years, the group has brought a string section to join them on stage for their 'Clockwork Angels' world tour, and they are enjoying having the extra manpower on stage.
The Velvet Underground and Rush -- as disparate classic rock bands as you can find - will nonetheless soon find themselves on the same album. Both groups will be featured on the soundtrack to 'The Lords of Salem,' a new film by Rob Zombie.
They don't have a reputation for being the most tie-in-hungry rock band out there (cough), but the guys in Rush have enough of a sense of humor to sign off on the occasional oddball licensed product. Case in point: Rush bobblehead dolls.
