They are opening the "Clockwork Angels" tour in Manchester NH tonight.
Here is a Rolling Stone interview with >ALEX LIFESON<
I imagine you're tired of this subject, but I know a lot of
people are furious that you guys aren't in the Rock and Roll Hall of
Fame. How do you feel about it?
Honestly, we really, really
don't care about it. It's someone's thing, and they can do whatever they
want with it. They can have whomever they like. It's their thing.
It's a little bit different here in Canada. We've received awards
that mean an awful lot more to us than being in the Hall of Fame. We got
the Governor General's Performing Arts Award a couple weeks ago. That's
really the highest accolade you can get in this country for the
performing arts, and it's recognized nationally, and I felt so proud as a
Canadian to be in this esteemed group of artists that have been there
for the last 20 years.
