Video Of Rush's Complete Rock Hall Induction Goes Online

05/21/2013
.
(hennemusic) HBO broadcast the 28th annual Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony over the weekend, and video of Rush's complete portion of the evening has surfaced online.

Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters delivered Rush's induction speech, filled with references to the band's lengthy career. "Playing upwards of 250 shows a year from day one," said Grohl, "the band built its following the right way – no hype, no bullsh*t. They did it from the ground up… without any help from the mainstream press…(coughs)…Rolling Stone."

Rush then took center stage to wild applause from fans; the band seemed overwhelmed by the event and its meaning. "We've been saying for a long time, years, that this wasn't a big deal," said drummer Neil Peart. "Turns out that it kind of is."

The Rush portion of the live performances kicked off with Grohl (as Lifeson), Hawkins (as Peart) and producer Nick Raskulinecz (as Lee) - dressed in the 2112-era white robes, with wigs - who cranked out a version of the 2112: Overture. The guys were joined near the end of the tune by Lee and Lifeson themselves. Check out the video here.
