Rush, Heart, Donna Summer, Randy Newman, blues legend Albert King, and rappers Public Enemy are the 2013 inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea announced the inductees yesterday (December 11th) at L.A.’s Nokia Theater, which is where where the induction ceremony will be held on April 18th.

 

A truncated version of the evening’s events will air on HBO on May 18th. Producer/arranger and L.A. music scene powerhouse Lou Adler along with Quincy Joneswill receive the prestigious Ahmet Ertegun Award.

Geddy Lee told Rolling Stone that he’s happy that the fans that have wanted the honor for Rush have finally achieved their goal: “It’s a terrific honor and we’ll show up smiling. It made my mom happy, so that’s worth it. . . It was a cause they championed. I’m very relieved for them and we share this honor with them, for sure.”

Heart, like Rush, had been passed over year after year. Singer Ann Wilson explained how a band like Heart can be easily be overlooked: “Some people have an idea of what the shape of rock n’ roll is supposed to look like. We’re not really it. Personally, that’s why I think it’s taken quite a while . . . We’re always traveling and out there doing it. It can start to feel like you’re a tree falling in the forest, but nobody notices. So this kind of acknowledgment is really sweet.”
