Wed, Feb 7, 2007@9:57AM | comments

The nominees for the 2007 Juno Awards have been announced and Rush's live DVD R30 is up for music DVD of the year. The individuals involved are Pierre Lamoureux, Pegi Cecconi, Ray Danniels, Allan Weinrib and, of course, Rush. Ray Daniels will also be inducted into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame as I reported last December. Here's the blurb from the website:

Allan Weinrib - The executive producer/producer of the Rush R30 DVD is Rush singer/bassist Geddy Lee’s brother. In 2004, Weinrib won Music DVD of the Year for Rush In Rio.

Pegi Cecconi - The one-of-a-kind Cecconi works at S.R.O. Management Inc., a management firm and part of Anthem Entertainment Group - an international recording, publishing and merchandising enterprise.

The president and C.E.O. of S.R.O. Management Inc., the management arm of Anthem Entertainment Group, will be inducted into the 2007 Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame. He began his career in the music industry booking bands in Toronto. In 1971, he became Canadian rock band Rush's agent and manager and launched Moon Records (later renamed Anthem) to release Rush's self-titled debut.

Rush - The trio is working on its 18th original album since the trio formed in 1968 and released its eponymously-titled debut in 1974. The band has since sold more than 36 million albums worldwide and continues to be one of the top-grossing international touring acts. The last time Rush was in the studio to record original material was for 2002's Vapor Trails. R30 is a live 30th Anniversary World Tour DVD and CD set.

Pierre Lamoureux - Quebec's Lamoureux is the producer of Rush's R30, Killing Joke’s XXV Gathering!, Stray Cats' Rumble In Brixton, The Who's Live In Boston, executive producer of Deep Purple's Perihelion - Live In Florida and The Who Live At The Royal Albert Hall.

Congratulations to them. Hopefully they'll win.
