WATCH: RUSH 2112 Overture performed by Foo Fighters
Members Dave and Taylor of the Foo Fighters performing RUSH's 2112 Overture. In VINTAGE RUSH costumes!! from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
This year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony happened in L.A. on Thursday night . . . and one of the highlights was when the FOO FIGHTERS dressed up as a '70s-era version of RUSH, with wigs and all, and performed "Overture" from Rush's album "2112".
This year'sRock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony happened in Los Angeles on Thursday night. It'll air as an HBO special on May 18th, but in the meantime, here's a rundown of the highlights:
Arguably the biggest act to be inducted was RUSH. Finally. DAVE GROHL and TAYLOR HAWKINS from the FOO FIGHTERS did the honors.
Dave said, quote, "They did it from the ground up: No hype, no bull[crap], without any help from the mainstream press."
Rush drummer NEIL PEART said, quote, "We've been saying for a long time that this isn't a big deal. Turns out it kind of is!" Singer GEDDY LEE thanked, quote, "the most passionate fanbase around the globe" . . .
And guitarist ALEX LIFESON gave a very bizarre "speech" that went on for OVER TWO MINUTES and only consisted of the word: "Blah." (???) Some people online are already begging HBO to air the whole thing unedited.
Dave, Taylor and some guy you've never heard of then hit the stage dressed as Rush in the '70s . . . with wigs . . . and performed "Overture" from Rush's 1976 album,"2112". Midway through, Rush joined in. They also performed "Tom Sawyer" and "Spirit of the Radio".
