Rush Frontman Explains Guitarist's Bizarre Hall of Fame Acceptance Speech
Rush frontman Geddy Lee has noted that the and drummer Neil Pear were taken aback by Alex Lifeson's bizarre acceptance speech at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Lifeson's portion of the speech, which went on for several minutes, consisted entirely of the guitarist repeating the phrase "blah blah blah."

"I wish he would have warned us. We could have thought it was planned, as opposed to feeling like maybe he was losing his marbles."

As Lee notes, the speech was an extension of the light-hearted stage personas that Rush fans have come to expect from the band:

"Left to our own devices out ideas are usually pretty goofy," he says. "It seems a shame to not share that goofiness with our fans, who have obviously come to love it."
