Rush Perform With Foo Fighters at Hall of Fame Induction

Subscribe to Eagle 106.3 on

Rush were the runaway stars at the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony last night. And one of the show’s highlights found the trio onstage with two members of the Foo Fighters, who performed the final minute of ‘2112”s classic ‘Overture’ with the newly inducted band. Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins even dressed in vintage Rush outfits  — Grohl as Alex Lifeson and Hawkins as Neil Peart — complete with wigs.

The third member of the temporary tribute band — the one dressed like Geddy Lee — was Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz, who’s worked with both Rush and the Foos in the past. You can watch the video above.

Grohl formally inducted Rush, a fan favorite but critically neglected group, into the Rock Hall. Peart recognized the band’s excruciatingly long path to respect. “We’ve been saying for a long time, years, that this wasn’t a big deal,” he said. “Turns out it kind of is.”

The real Rush played ‘Tom Sawyer’ and ‘The Spirit of Radio’ at the ceremony in Los Angeles last night. Also inducted were Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Heart, Donna Summer, Albert King, Quincy Jones and producer/industry insider Lou Adler.
