North American syndicated rock radio show "In The Studio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands" (web site) congratulates RUSH on the eve of their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
It is fitting that the first year the Rock Hall allows the public to vote in the selection process that RUSH would come out on top. Overlooked for years, RUSH has learned to be quite comfortable with the underdog position, as singer/bassist/keyboardist Geddy Lee and guitarist Alex Lifeson both point out to "In The Studio" host Redbeard.
"We couldn't get anything but a single deal until we formed our own record label," said Lee. "So you think about that and you think about what its like today and it doesn't seem much different, does it? So, in one sense, the more things change the more they stay the same."
"We've been outside of trends, we've been outside of the mainstream," added Lifeson. "I think if there ever was an alternative band, it's been us. For decades we've been alternative to just about anything that's going on."
RUSH "Sector One - Early Best" "In The Studio" interview is available now to stream using the audio player below.
