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.
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.
