'Foo Fighters' Duo to Induct 'Rush' Into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame
Canadian rock band "Rush" will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year and the personalities to do the honour will be "Foo Fighters" lead singer Dave Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins.
Grohl has made no secret of the fact that he is a great big fan of "Rush" and that they were a major influence on his own music career.
"It was, like, woah — drums! You could be, like, the leader, then take over the world," he said in a recent interview with the Rolling Stones magzine.
But despite his fondness for "Rush", the "Pretenders" crooner says that he had to conceal his love for them due to their strange choice of art cover.
"On the back [of the album], they're all in white silk, one dude is in a kimono, and the other has these gnarly Cameron Diaz disco pants where the seam is perfectly [lined] in the middle of both of his balls. I didn't tell anybody that I liked this band because of that dude's f—in' nuts! I was afraid my friends would beat me up," he explained.
The 2013 induction ceremony, which is scheduled to take place at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on April 18, will also feature other artists such as John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr., the latter of whom will pay a musical tribute to the late Blues musician Albert King.
Pop stars Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson will induct disco legend Donna Summer, while "Soundgarden" frontman Chris Cornell and "Eagles" founding member Don Henley will do the same for "Heart" and Randy Newman respectively.
