Rock Hall Preview-Rush [AUDIO]

Rush is in Los Angeles this week getting ready for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame there Thursday at the Nokia Theater.

Despite being eligible for induction since 1999, they weren’t nominated until last year. But for Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart, the fact that they had never been nominated was not something they thought about. “It certainly was not in the forefront of our minds ever,” says Geddy. “We felt really strongly for our fans because it seemed to be a cause that they championed…so I feel very happy that they got the monkey off their back…because it’s their victory more than our victory.”

They will be inducted by Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters.

Also being inducted this year is Heart, Randy Newman, Quincy Jones, the late Donna Summer, the late Albert King, producer Lou Adler and Public Enemy.

Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson will take part in a Q&A session following a screening of the Rush documentary, Beyond the Lighted Stage, Tuesday night at the ArcLight Cinema in L.A.
