Alex Lifeson gives the best awards acceptance speech in the history of awards acceptance speeches. This gem among typical awards-show faux-earnest drool comes after his colleagues make it effortlessly clear that the members of Rush care more about their fans and music than anyone else living in the limelight today. If the Sex Pistols had been inducted last night -- had John Lydon given the speech Alex Lifeson gave, the editors at Rolling Stone would have devoted countless ASCII characters to deciphering its political and social implications. But Lydon gave no speech at all back in 2006. Instead Rolling Stone head-cheese Jann Wenner himself read a prepared statement that was everything he has built a fortune for himself insisting bands like Rush are guilty of... contrived and pretentious.
