TORONTO, Ont. – Rush is finally going to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The Toronto power trio behind “Tom Sawyer” and “Y-Y-Z” have been announced among the next batch of inductees into the Cleveland rock shrine.
Public Enemy, Heart, Albert King, Donna Summer and Randy Newman will also be admitted into the Hall.
Rush had long been one of the Hall’s highest-profile omissions, which angered the group’s many fans.
Guitarist Alex Lifeson said that he’s happy to finally be inducted, but it means more to the fans than it does to the band.
He said the band’s longevity and the outcry of fans might have combined to finally change the minds of voters who had excluded Rush before.
