Rush To Receive University Honor

(Classic Rock) Rush are to be given honorary degrees by a Canadian university next week, it's been confirmed. Lee, Lifeson and Peart will receive their doctorates on June 12.

Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart will add the awards from their home nation to a clutch that includes multiple Junos, induction into the Canadian Hall Of Fame, a Governor General's Performing Arts decoration and elevation to the Order Of Canada.

It's the first round of honorary degrees given by Nipissing University, Ontario. Vice chancellor Mike DeGagne says, "The nine honorees are remarkable Canadians who have helped make our world better. It is very rewarding that they each recognize the distinct value of Nipissing University and support our mission and vision to the extent that they are accepting our highest honor, solidifying their connection to our institution." more on this story
