    I like Rush - Never really got the hall of fame - it's kinda like artists to me (paint, etc) - they get determined that they are good by some committee or something
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    Rush is a very talented band

    Mr. Lee is well respected for his bass playing chops.

    It's not my music per se...


    But I respect them.

    Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage

    Pretty cool doc about them. What happened to the Professor and him actually talking about it is pretty interesting.

    Huge ass drum set and double necked guitars. And the most distinctive lead singers voice in rock.What's not to like.

    They deserve it totally! Have deserved it for years. They could have stopped in 1983 with their music and STILL would have had enough accomplishments to be in there. In fact they should have cut the ribbon on that SHACK they call the hall of fame when they opened it!
    Think about the people that beat them in there.....
    Madonna? (rock and roll????)
    Faces? ....What? Are you serious? You mean the back up band for Rod freakin' Stewart?!!
    Beastie Boys....I love me some Beastie Boys, but to put them in there before bands like Rush, no way....Absolutely NO way.

    I agree Rush belongs in. I agree they could have stopped in 1983. Sometimes I think they *should* have stopped then.

    Your comment about the Faces just goes to show you don't know much about them though.
    When you get older, much of your hate comes from knowledge and experience, which is why really old people hate everyone

    Saw Rush in the 70's or maybe it was the very early 80's. Amazing amount of sound coming out of three musicians.

    Neil wrote 96 or 97% of the lyrics. Alex and Geddy admitted many times to just sort of being “along for the ride” along an immense never-ending literary tidal wave, trying to keep up with the accompanying music they provided that might have a chance of being relevant to Neil’s deep lyrical insight. As a self-taught drummer/percussionist, Neil’s amazing timing perfection had me mesmerized for many decades; it is only now that I can follow some of those odd meter time signature changes (transitioning from 4/4 to 11/4 or even from 5/4 to 11/8 for example). I’ve missed two opportunities to see them live; the next time they are in my area (apparently not in 2013 according to their website) I will not hesitate.

    Something happened after the album Signals—I am not sure what, but that was the last album I could actually enjoy listening to. Sometimes your roots are there for you to follow; trying to “reinvent” your musical identity can take a downturn.

    I saw them Live in 1979 in Denver. An amazing show. And I always likes the early RUSH better than later years. I favorite being "Lakeside". I always felt a connection with that song having spent some of my childhood and early teens on Lake Ontario in Rochester N.Y. Although the song was about a park across the lake in Toronto. It still ranks #1 with me. Rush - "Lakeside Park" live 1976 - YouTube

    In the 80s I saw 'em on May 24. I was a little disappointed that they didn't play Lakeside Park. Still think they are a great band - I may now consider the "rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame" a real thing now.

    Let us not get carried away, here. Fine band, for sure. Deep lyrical insight? Not so much.

    No freakin' way! Were they touring with Max Webster then? I was on that tour (roadie with Max Webster). I know we played Denver but not sure of the year. 79 would be close.

    Lakeside Park is actually about Port Dalhousie (pronounced "da loozey") near St. Catharines. My old stomping grounds.
