Rush Receives Homeland Honor

Year after year, Rush gets snubbed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but their home and native land continues to heap the accolades on them and you won’t believe who got to give it to them.

Rush is among the honorees for the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award.

The group is among five others to receive the award and not only did they get the award, they were also treated to a three hour tribute performance in Ottawa. According to the Ottawa Citizen, South Park creator Matt Stone was the one who bestowed the honor on the group saying that the trio was the first band that he ever loved.

Pete Townshend of The Who also took part in the accolades. He helped give an award to Des McAnuff. That name may not ring a bell right away, but Des was the stage writer and director was responsible for bringing The Who’s rock opera Tommy to life in 1992.

All of that being said, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame still has not called Geddy, Alex or Neal to ask them to be inducted, but you can see Rush live in concert September 24 at Target Center.
