It took power trio Rush 14 years to be elected in to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame after becoming eligible in 1999. However, in their native Canada, they have been bestowed with no less than nine Juno Awards, which is the Canadian version of The Grammys. Their first came in 1975, and the band just won their latest Juno Award for Rock Album Of The Year with their 2012 album Clockwork Angels.
Upon being inducted in to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, Rush drummer Neil Peart told the crowd “We’ve been saying for a long time that this wasn’t a big deal. Turns out… it kinda is!” Rush fans have been lobbying for the band to be included in the Hall Of Fame for years, and finally their work has paid off. Geddy Lee and Co. are currently on tour in support of Clockwork Angels, a tour that will take them all over the United States, Canada, and Europe throughout the summer.
