After so many years of grievous snubs and countless petitions, the long wait is finally over when Rush was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame back in 2013. It seemed as though every rock fan celebrated the achievement of the triumvirate from Canada, who waited to be inducted after almost 14 years of eligibility.
The trio gave the most concise speech among the other inductees, with a hilarious “blah blah” comment from Alex Lifeson. But the true highlight of the show was when Rush performed their classic “Tom Sawyer” to celebrate.
In all honesty, Rush never experienced a bad performance on-stage, and they certainly nailed the quintessential track with Neil Peart on drums, Geddy Lee on bass, synthesizer, & vocals, and Lifeson on guitar. History has been made, and they made sure the night of the ceremony was an unforgettable one for everybody.
The legendary performance would want you to question why it took so long for the Hall of Fame board to finally give Rush the long-due award that they all deserve since 1998.
