Rush is among the new honorees set to receive The Guitar Center’s coveted RockWalk award. The RockWalk was established in 1985 at the original Guitar Center location on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood. Unlike with similar awards, RockWalk inductees are selected solely by those who’ve been inducted in the past.
Joining Rush in this year’s honors are fellow Canadian Alanis Morissette and Grammy-winning Latin rockers Mana. Each will have their own ceremony, where invitation-only attendants will deliver speeches and the handprints of the honored artists will be place in cement. Rush, Morissette and Mana join such past RockWalk honorees as Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, AC/DC, B.B. King and Van Halen. The dates for the inductions are:
August 21 – Alanis Morissette
September 17 – Mana
November 20 -- Rush
