After more than a decade of irate rants and enthusiastic lobbying from fans, Rush is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Canadian trio will be inducted into the hall on April 18 along with Heart, singer-songwriter-pianist Randy Newman, late disco queen Donna Summer and blues guitarist Albert King. Label executive and music impresario Lou Adler and producer-arranger-composer Quincy Jones are headed as Ahmet Ertegun Award -- aka non-performer -- honorees. The inductees were announced at the Nokia Theater where the induction ceremony will be held next year. It is the first time in 20 years since the festivities have been held in L.A.; it will again be open to the public and aired on HBO on May 18.
