Rush Jam Hall of Fame

"We've been saying for a long time that this wasn't a big deal," drummer-lyricist Neil Peart told the crowd, most of whom came out to specifically support the band. "It turns out, it kind of is."

Rush gained entry following its first appearance on the ballot after repeatedly being left off the list since gaining eligibility in 1998, to the great consternation of the legion of Rush fans who cried bias against progressive rock. The long wait didn't seem to matter at Thursday's star-studded concert event, which ran over five hours. Peart, lead singer Geddy Lee and guitarist Alex Lifeson made up for lost time by launching into a rambunctious rendition of "Tom Sawyer" in front of the more than 7,000 attendees.

Rush was among this year's eight eclectic inductees, which also included fellow classic rockers Heart, singer-songwriter Randy Newman, rap group Public Enemy, disco queen Donna Summer, bluesman Albert King, and producers Quincy Jones and Lou Adler.

Re: Rush Jam Hall of Fame

Surprised by some of the inductees, especially with the groups still not in.
To keep with the thread, however, Rush certainly deserves it. Neil Peart is one of the greatest drummers ever.

Great to see Rush FINALLY get in.

Also glad to see Albert King get in too. One of my favorite bluesmen!

Now next year onto the greatest remaining HOF snub - KISS!
