[lastfm]Rush[/lastfm] have taken their place on Hollywood Boulevard among rock and roll’s finest. The band was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday, with guitarist [lastfm]Alex Lifeson[/lastfm] and bassist [lastfm]Geddy Lee[/lastfm] on hand to accept the honor.
The duo thanked the crowd, calling the event a “beautiful, surreal moment.” They continued on to say that it has been “quite a trip” all the way “from the suburbs of Toronto to a star on Hollywood Boulevard.”
The induction, which took place last week in front of Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles, boasted appearances by celebs such as the [lastfm]Smashing Pumpkins[/lastfm] frontman [lastfm]Billy Corgan[/lastfm].
Also on hand for the event was former Cleveland area DJ Donna Halper, who helped push Rush into the national spotlight with her support of their self-titled 1974 debut album. Halper told the crowd, “Rush always stayed true to themselves and true to their music, and never lost their integrity.”
Rush are currently on tour supporting their upcoming release, Clockwork Angels, which is set to drop in 2011.
