Geddy and the boys given their own Sub-division in CSHF

Mazal Tov to Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart. On MArch 28, 2010 - just one day before Pesach - the trio more commonly known as prog-rock legends RUSH, were inducted into the Canadian Songwriting Hall of Fame.

The band is currently working on its 20th studio album.

Read more of the pertinent details in this Montreal Gazette article.

And here's a vid of Rush playing 'Red Sector A' in 2007. The song is one Peart wrote honouring survivors of atrocities everywhere and more specifically for Lee's mother, who is a Holocaust survivor. Great song by a great Canadian band.
