The Spring 2013 issue of Goldmine: The Music Collector's Magazine is a special Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction issue which features a new interview with Geddy Lee. In addition to the Geddy Lee interview, which can be read in its entirety at this LINK, there is also a lengthy interview with Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart where the topic of Rush comes up in several questions.
From the Heart article:Goldmine, Do you think Heart deserves the Hall of Fame?Geddy Lee had this to say about Rush being inducted into the Hall of Fame:
Ann Wilson: Oh, absolutely. I think it is really about the music, but it is also about your influence on rock culture. I think we deserve to be there and I know that Rush deserves to be there.
Rush being inducted is a fine moment in rock justice, if there ever was one. I mean that. Those guys are so beloved, and so true to themselves and they are such an amazing band. It has always been a question mark to me sometimes when it comes to people who have been inducted vs. others who have not been inducted. It is sometimes a dog whistle that I can't understand. Where Rush is concerned, it is dead on and it's who should be in there.
GM, I hope you get to Jam with Rush at the end of the event.
Nancy Wilson: Me, too. I am a super Rush fan. We didn't grow up Rush fans because there was a secret dog whistle that only males could hear. We watched the documentary "Beyond the Lighted Stage," because they are really good friends with our producer. Ben Mink and I thought it would be really cool to see that. I got way into it I loved the way they had their chicken basting machines and their washing machines as their backline. I loved their intelligence and their humor. I brought it to the tour bus and I watched it with Ann. We have been big Rush fans ever since.Geddy Lee: I was pleased, y'know? It wasn't one of those fist-pump things or anything, but I was especially pleased and relieved for our fan base, who made it into a real cause célèbre for the last couple of years. I know how much it means to them. I was pleased they could finally get the monkey off their back. I was also happy and honored to hear this news.Check out the entire Rush article at this LINK.
