Over the weekend, seminal Canadian rock trio Rush were honoured for their lifetime contributions to music at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa.
Yesterday evening the Governor General of Canada – David Johnston – presented the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award (GGPAA) for Lifetime Artistic Achievement to Rush during a ceremony at Rideau Hall in Ottawa. All three members of the band were in attendance.
South Park co-creator Matt Stone was even on hand to induct the band, calling them the first band he ever loved.
So, you know… screw the Hall of Fame!
