I heard a clip from an interview with Ann & Nancy Wilson, who seemed genuinely tickled that Rush made it in.
It's a pretty nice lineup of artists this year.
Ann: I was especially happy for Rush, and also for Randy Newman. Definitely those two in particular.
It's hard to picture that jam session at the end of the night.
Nancy: I don't think anyone does Rush songs except for Rush. That would require weeks of rehearsal.
Plus, I think it was Nancy that referred to Rush a "the thinking man's rock band. made for men. And girls like us." or something like that
