[Rush 'Living Legends' At Classic Rock Awards]

The UK's Classic Rock Magazine announced earlier today that Rush will be awarded the Living Legend award at this year's Marshall Classic Rock Roll Of Honour Awards. From the Classic Rock website:

... Rush will fly in to London to collect the award on November 10, with Alice Cooper hosting the event at London’s Roundhouse venue.

The awards event will also see live performances for the first time in its six-year history, from Alter Bridge, Cheap Trick and The Union.

The Classic Rock ‘Living Legend’ award is bestowed on a rock act for their enduring influence and remarkable achievements in the world of rock music.

As one of rock’s most influential bands, Rush will be joining an illustrious list of previous legendary recipients such as Iggy Pop, Ozzy Osbourne, Jimmy Page, Alice Cooper and Lemmy.

Rush’s Beyond The Lighted Stage is also nominated for DVD/Film Of The Year, along with The Doors, The Runaways, Oil City Confidential and Saxon.

Rush bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee said: “We are thrilled to receive the ‘Living Legend’ award from Classic Rock. It’s much better than the alternative! Seriously, we are humbled and very appreciative.”

Scott Rowley, Editor-in-Chief of Classic Rock, added: “Ridiculously, Rush haven’t yet been inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame – so it’s an honour to recognise their massive contribution to rock music at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour.” ...

Given the disappointing news from earlier this morning, this could not have come at a better time. Thanks to John at for the heads up.
