See the CNN report on Rush receiving a star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood. As usual, Alex is in top comedic form...

Neil never shows up for this kind of stuff, he doesn't like to be in a crowd or something Confused

He does not like to be in the "limelight"....never really did. Leaves that to Geddy and Alex. Based on the documentary, he talks about it..more of an embaressment for him.
 
Especially after the loss of his wife and daughter.

They have a star on Toronto's 'walk of fame' too. I guess that's not quite the same. I had my picture taken standing over it, while my friends died of embarassment as I tried to explain to a local why this experience was so important to me. I had been drinking all afternoon...

Nice one Rush. I dont suppose it means that much to them, as Geddy points out 'We're musicians. It's hardly the nobelist of pursuits'
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Great clip, thanks, but who's the muppet as host of ceremonies??Confused

My understanding as a soppy Brit is that this is actually a very big honour. Any other prog bands on there?


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

They should waited until 2012, then blasted 2112 for the next hundred years through the city streets to be ironic.
