Billboard Touring Award To Rush

After venting about the failure of the Rock Hall Of Fame to recognize the accomplishments of Rush (story), it was good to find out that music industry mainstay Billboard will honor the band that the RHOF again chose to ignore.  Rush will receive a Legend Of Live Award during the Billboard Touring Awards presentations on November 4 at the Sheraton New York Hotel.  The Canadian power trio joins past honorees the Allman Brothers Band, Ozzy Osbourne, Elton John and Rolling Stones promoter Michael Cohl.  In an announcement we hope comes to the attention of those responsible for choosing Rock Hall Of Fame nominees, Ray Waddell of Billboard credited the group as, '...uniquely deserving of this award as they have a remarkable body of live work that altered the course of Rock music and raised the bar as to what can be done onstage.'  Hello, Cleveland  -  those accolades apply equally to what Rush has been able to do in the studio.
