“Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction 2017 – Full Ceremony and Performance”
Inducted by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson.
Geddy Lee stands in for Chris Squire (RIP) on bass during the performance of “Roundabout”, awesome!
“Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction 2013 – Full Ceremony and Performance”
Inducted by Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins, of the Foo Fighters.
I haven’t touched this one, the video and sound quality are very good as-is. It includes:
– Alex Lifeson’s infamous “Blah, Blah, Blah” speech, IMHO intended to shit all over the R&R HoF.
Good for him! Rush had been together for 41 years at this point. They’re ranked 3rd all-time for consecutive gold and platinum albums, topped only by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. They’ve sold more than 40 million albums worldwide. Now, think of all the other musicians who got inducted before them. 90% can’t hold a candle to the talent or longevity of Rush.
– Foo Fighters partial performance of 2112 spoofing Rush in the 70’s, joined shortly by the real deal.
– Full length performances of “Tom Sawyer” and “The Spirit of Radio”.
