The Canadian rock band Rush was announced to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This has provoked a feeling of pride and glee in all of the Rush fans. All credit goes to the lady behind the scenes Donna Halper. The lady was responsible for first airplay of the band on a U.S radio station. After getting the news that Rush had been inducted, Donna couldn’t control her emotions. She told ‘I’m not a very emotional person when I’m doing business but I had tears in my eyes’. Donna appreciated the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame judges for truly liking the Rush band and its music. This band came up with its own type of rock music in late 60s.
The Rush band was originated in the year 1968 in Toronto, Ontario. The band features Geddy Lee as lead vocalist, bassist and keyboardist; Neil Peart as drummer and lyricist; and Alex Lifeson as guitarist. Previously, the band was inducted in the year 1994 for the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
Rush will be inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 18, 2013 after the completion of a ceremony in Los Angeles. Truly; the dedication and effort of the band members and the promotion efforts of music director Donna Halper have played a vital role in helping the band over the years, to finally get inducted for the Hall of Fame.
