Rush inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame....finally.
One of the bands that started it all for me, RUSH, was finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after being eligible way back in 1999. And what a momentous occasion it was. They stole the show and it was a very emotional moment for the band backstage afterwards. As Neil Peart said on stage "We have said for years that this really wasn't that big of a deal, it turns out that it kinda is". Neal gave a very eloquent speech about how they honored to be a part of "this family" and threw some humor in as well. Geddy was as usual very grateful to the fans and thanked them for making it happen for them. Alex took the mic with a rant of Blah Blah bla Blahhh Blah that lasted about 2 minutes and hilariousness ensued when he never spoke a real word but everyone knew exactly what he was saying by his expressions and body language. It was absolutely hilarious and typical for Alex to outstage everyone.
