UPDATE - 3/15@7:18AM: The speech is also now up on YouTube - the part on Rush comes in at the 9:40 mark.

On Thursday, April 18th Rush will finally be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters will be doing the honors of inducting Rush at the ceremony. Grohl also had the honor of making the keynote address at this year's SXSW festival today in Austin, TX and mentions Rush at about the 19:45 mark of this video of the speech (thanks barboy2112):
