Last night (Thursday, April 18th) in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE, RUSH led the inductees into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame as Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of FOO FIGHTERS inducted them in, while THE EAGLES' Don Henley and SOUNDGARDEN's Chris Cornell did the honors for RANDY NEWMAN and HEART respectively.

In an Artisan News report, Rush drummer Neil Peart remarked: "We've been saying for a long time, years, that this wasn't a big deal. Turns out that it kind of is."
