Rush received a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame last Friday, appropriately in front of the Musicians Institute on Hollywood Boulevard. And while their star was number 2412 and not 2112, as many of their fans might have preferred, Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee, both of whom were in attendance, were nonetheless pleased by the honor.

Noticeably absent was drummer and lyricist Neil Peart. The notoriously press-shy Peart was said to be riding a motorcycle to the band’s first tour date in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Tuesday.

On hand to induct the musicians were Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan and Donna Halper, a former music director at Cleveland’s WMMS-FM who was among the first to champion the band’s 1974 self-titled debut album. [read]
