Another trip down memory lane...

Twenty Six years ago today - on December 15, 1978 - I saw Rush in concert for the first time. They were touring in support of their Hemispheres album, and they played at the International Amphitheater in Chicago. I'm not going to bore you with a bunch of praise for this great band (people pretty much either love them or hate them). But, I would like to point out that Rush has had 22 gold albums in America. That puts them in a tie for fifth place all time behind The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Kiss, and Aerosmith. Pretty impressive, huh? So, why aren't they in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? If you think they should be, then click HERE to go fill out a petition to help get Rush inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
