Grohl will induct Rush; ‘90s nostalgia reigns at Rock on the Range
January 23, 2013 - Andy Gray
Warren native Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters’ drummer Taylor Hawkins will induct Rush into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the April 18 ceremony in Los Angeles.
The Rock Hall announced the first group of performers and presenters this morning. Others on the program include John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr., who will perform for blues great Albert King; Don Henley, who will induct Randy Newman; and Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson, who will perform in honor of Donna Summer.
