Rush Honoured in Ottawa

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!
