As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

Last week, Rush was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. At the ceremony, when it was time for them to accept their awards, Pratt started out being very philosophical, Dirk was quite pragmatic, and Lerxst decided to give a very succinct commentary on the nature of the "Acceptance Speech". It was hilarious and he really nailed it.

Enjoy...

It was a commentary on the HoF taking too long to recognise them.

Ooo, the false comparison, just like comparing Android: Netrunner (#6) with World in Flames (#444).

Given that Kylie Minogue is #443, I'd say the drop-off in rock and roll is steeper.

Given that Radiohead is #5, I'd say the drop-off is credibility is astronomical.

There's no accounting for taste. I include the Beatles in that sentiment too.

I thought it was funny, but it did go a little too long.

For the haters out there, Rush can pretty much play any song, not many bands can play Rush songs.
