UPDATE - 3/22@10:10AM: Ed Robertson was interviewed for Billboard and had this to say about having Geddy Lee induct the band (thanks RushFanForever):

Oh man, for me that's like an actual dream come true. I reached out to Geddy and said, 'Hey, listen, this is an actual, literal teenage dream, but I am an adult now so I understand if you can't make this work.' And he's just been awesome. So he's going to do the induction, which is beyond a thrill to me. There's so much to look forward to -- we're gonna play, Geddy's doing the induction. It's a total dream weekend.
