Canadians are so under rated.
Rush will finally be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this evening presented by the Foo Fighters.
Neil Peart and Dave Grohl on the same stage at the same time.  That’s the best drumming on the planet right there.

Always liked listening to Rush, I keep “Exit..Stage Left” in the car for such occasions.

Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive were from Winnipeg and did great in the 60’s & 70’s.  Rush should have been in years ago. “Tom Sawyer” never gets old.

Agree on Peart and Grohl. Different styles, but wow!

Oh damn, reading the subject line I thought the OP was about Rush Limbaugh.

My bad.

Rush Limbaugh is the sole inductee in his own hall of fame.

But, I do think that Rush Limbaugh is one person for whom conversion therapy should be attempted. What is there to lose?

ohh

Freewill contains one of my favorite stanzas in all of poetry and/or musical lyrics summing up the experience we call life:

“Each of us
A cell of awareness
Imperfect and incomplete
Genetic blends
With uncertain ends
On a fortune hunt that’s far too fleet”

I wonder if part of the reason it has taken this long has to do with their political philosophy?  I know there have been many musicians and bands inducted that questioned authority; but Rush did more than question the actions of authority, they questioned the existence of authority. (Titles like “the Anarchist” and “Farewell to Kings”)

They even suggested that the solution is violence – From Trees: “The trees were all kept equal by hatchet, axe and saw”. And from Bastille Day: “ La guillotine will claim her bloody prize :  The king will kneel, and let his kingdom rise : See them bow their heads to die - As we would bow when they rode by”.

Regardless of why it has taken so long, I’m glad to hear that they will be inducted!

Martin was kind enough to post that tune earlier.  Apparently the induction was prompted by fans online.
Canada has a tonne of great bands that never get the recognition they deserve.  Then there’s Bieber - feck sakes.
I just wanted to quickly mention for those of you that dig Foo Fighters…there’s an excellent documentary called Back and Forth.  It leads up to the making of the album “Wasting Light” which they recorded in Dave Grohl’s garage.
