Geddy Lee Talks About Rush's Rock Hall Induction

Geddy Lee says he’s especially happy for Rush fans that the band will at last be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Speaking to Rolling Stone, the singer-bassist shared his thoughts about the news. “My emotions are very simple and always have been, about the Hall of Fame,” he said. “It's something that I had absolutely nothing to do with and had no control over, so I never thought much about it, to be frank. But I appreciated how much it meant to our fan base. It really did mean a lot to them. It was kind of a cause they championed and I appreciated their feelings, but beyond that, I really did not concern myself with it.” Lee went on to praise his fellow 2013 inductees, but expressed disappointment that one band, in particular, was not among the honorees. “I'm very happy for [Heart],” he said. “I have great respect for Albert King and for Randy Newman. I don't know the music of Public Enemy very well, but I know they have a very strong fan base. They've certainly played a role in the development of that style of music for sure. To be frank, I am disappointed that Deep Purple is not included. Certainly Heart and Rush would not sound the way we sound without Deep Purple.”
