Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Now that Kiss are on the ballot for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, fans have started daydreaming about what it might be like to see the band enshrined alongside some of their fellow rock legends. But if your dream includes seeing the original lineup play at the induction ceremony, Gene Simmons has some bad news for you.
No matter how successful a person might be in his chosen field, he can still have heroes who make him feel like a kid again. Just ask Dave Grohl, who had what sounds like a deeply emotional experience when meeting up with the members of Rush for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
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.
Last night during the 28th annual induction ceremony for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Canadian progressive rock trio Rush finally joined the celebrated cast. As expected, their fans were there in full force to support them last night (April 18) with earth-shaking applause and standing ovations at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif.
Well, it finally happened, Rush fans -- the legendary Canadian power trio is finally, officially, ensconced in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Dave Grohl may have phrased it best in his induction speech for the band, when he asked the audience in mock puzzlement: "When the f--- did Rush become cool?"
