South Park's Matt Stone Give Rush Canadian Honor

(hennemusic) Rush were among the honorees at the 20th Anniversary Governor General's Performing Arts Awards Gala in Ottawa this weekend.

The Ottawa Citizen reports South Park co-creator Matt Stone took to the stage to recognize Rush members Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart. Stone grew up in Littleton, Col. idolizing the rock band from "this far off land called Canada."

"I remember buying their cassettes, tearing home on my BMX, running inside and throwing them into my Walkman, and sitting down to my drum set and just destroying my mom's afternoon," Stone recalled. "Rush was definitely the first band I ever loved." more on this story
