Rush's Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee to induct Yes into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Four years after their own induction, Rush are to welcome fellow proggers Yes into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Rush's Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson have been asked to induct Yes into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The ceremony will take place on April 7 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Yes, described by the Rock Hall as "the most enduring, ambitious and virtuosic progressive band in rock history," will be joined by fellow inductees ELO, Joan Baez, Journey, Nile Rogers, Pearl Jam and Tupac Shakur. It's also been announced that Neil Young will induct Pearl Jam, while Jackson Browne will induct Joan Baez.

"Rush was definitely influenced by Yes," says the Rock Hall's Todd Mesek, "and the two groups are both seminal prog-rock bands, so it's a natural fit to have Rush welcome in Yes as fellow inductees."

In 2013, late Yes bassist Chris Squire suggested that Rush would be a good choice if the opportunity arose, telling Los Angeles radio station K-Earth 101, "I haven't given it much thought, maybe those Rush guys who got in last year! I'm pretty good friends with Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins (of the Foo Fighters), and they did a great speech for Rush... so probably not them, since they just did one. But if you know Geddy (Lee), let him know that that would be fine by me.''

I have one of the three from this package; "Spirit Of The Airwaves" on White Vinyl, it's pretty cool cranked up on my turntable/home stereo. I would want something like this preferably on vinyl, some choice stuff. :)

Hi Kiwi

I have attached a scan of my Rush ticket for the show I am sending you. My (colour)printer has no colour ink and I can't get some ink until the weekend. So, if you can, use your skills and print it off and use it for the cover of the CD. I can't take it off individually from it's mount as it is too fragile to move. I hope this makes sense?

I have loads of stubs but some I have lost along the way including my Knebworth stub from 79:(. That Motorhead stub was the first time I saw them and again 5 months later which was the "Overkill" tour or maybe not:Thinking:not sure about that. I saw them many many times. The Scorpions show was a killer and the Plant shows - not so good. They were his first solo shows if I recall but did see him at Manchester Polytechnic as "The Honeydrippers" where he was great
