Rock Hall Snub Doesn't Bother Rush

Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson has addressed the band's snubbing by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. A bone of contention with fans, Lifeson shrugs it off in an interview.

"Honestly, we really, really don't care about it," Lifeson tells Rolling Stone who's founder was also instrumental in starting the Rock Hall. "It's someone's thing, and they can do whatever they want with it. They can have whomever they like. It's their thing."

"It's a little bit different here in Canada," continues Lifeson. "We've received awards that mean an awful lot more to us than being in the Hall of Fame. We got the Governor General's Performing Arts Award a couple weeks ago. That's really the highest accolade you can get in this country for the performing arts, and it's recognized nationally, and I felt so proud as a Canadian to be in this esteemed group of artists that have been there for the last 20 years."
