Not only is the Canadian prog-rock trio finally nominated for the first time since its eligibility in 1999, but this year marks the first time fans will have a vote – albeit a tiny one – to decide who is inducted.

If you’re a RUSH fan, you must be ecstatic! All kindsa stocking stuffers for you and yers this Christmas–Neil needs a new cross-country touring motorcycle.
Video footage of Axl “good-naturedly” ribbing Slash has just surfaced…this is a GOOD sign that they’ll reunite! Well, at least at the R&R Hall of Fame induction. That’s IF they make the cut…
If you have ever wanted to go from playing Angry Birds to watching the Rolling Stones then here’s your chance.
