Rush: Neil Peart posts December blog


Rush drummer/lyricist Neil Peart has posted his December blog update.

Entitled “Adventures In The Wild West,” the entry begins as Rush kick off the third leg of their Clockwork Angels North American tour.

Peart recounts his motorcycle travels from the leg’s first show in Seattle to its next, two days later in San Jose, CA…and many more as the tour rolled through the U.S. west and southwest.

This week, Rush were announced as inductees into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame’s Class of 2013.

Rush have been eligible for the Rock Hall since 1998; artists are considered for inclusion 25 years after the release of their first recording.

“We are honored to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,” said the band. “The 3 of us are especially appreciative of our loyal fans whose support and dedication has gone a long way to making this possible. P.S. And special thanks to our moms for voting 6000 times!”

Joining the Canadian rock legends are Heart, Public Enemy, Donna Summer, Randy Newman and Albert King.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held on April 18th, 2013 at the Nokia Theater and will be broadcast on HBO on May 18th.

Tickets for the 2013 induction ceremony go on sale to the public on January 25th.
