Rush bassist Geddy Lee and his bandmates Alex Lifeson & Neil Peart are going to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an honor that many Rush fans feel is long overdue.
Geddy, on the announcement (from notreble.com):
“It’s a terrific honor and we’ll show up smiling… It made my mom happy, so that’s worth it. It was a cause [Rush fans] championed. I’m very relieved for them and we share this honor with them, for sure.”
Best band in the history of the world!!
This is perfectly timed and just a tad on the awesomely creepy side.
1. If I was stranded on a desert island and could only follow one tumblr, Mike Errico’s page is probably on top of the list.
2. Just saw Rush last night on the Clockwork Angels tour and had my mind blown AGAIN by what an awesome group of guys (and musicians, duh!) they are.
3. Expect me to blog/reblog some Lifeson immediately.
The Geddy Lee-sa. Brilliant.
