The 2013 Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony took place yesterday (April 18) and it was a night to remember, especially for the members of Rush.
The hard rock legends, inducted by The Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins, packed the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles with devoted fans who filled every moment of silence during the ceremony with shouts of “Rush!” and “Geddy!”
Guitarist Alex Lifeson said of the honor in his acceptance speech (via Artisan News Service), “We’ve been saying for a long time, years, that this isn’t a big deal. Turns out, it kind of is.”
“Their legacy is that of a band that stayed true to themselves no matter how uncool they seemed to anyone. Rush have always been cool!” praised Grohl in his introduction speech. “Consider this mystery solved and it's our honor to finally induct Rush into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” (via Rolling Stone).
The Foo Fighters, as a trio, took to the stage, donning wigs and vintage Rush costume, to pay homage to the band with their rendition of “2112,” “Tom Sawyer,” and “The Spirit of Radio.” Rush themselves closed the ceremony with a brilliant cross-genre performance of Cream’s “Crossroads” with Chuck D of Public Enemy.
Long overdue inductee Randy Newman performed with Jackson Browne, Tom Petty, and John Fogerty and was inducted by Don Henley of The Eagles. The sisters of Heart, Ann and Nancy Wilson, were inducted by Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell and performed their hit “Barracuda” with Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready and Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell contributing.
Other inductees include Quincy Jones, inducted by Oprah Winfrey, blues guitar great Albert King, inducted by John Mayer, rap pioneers Public Enemy, inducted by filmmaker Spike Lee and the late disco queen Donna Summer was honored with an induction from Kelly Rowland and a performance from Jennifer Hudson.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will air May 18 on HBO.
