Awesome: Rush
  • The quick timbali triplet fills Neil plays at the beginning of "Time Stand Still" were inspired by a similar fill in a Genesis song. Later, he worked with the same engineer as that Genesis record and was told that the fill he was inspired by was recorded with the tape slowed down.
  • Neil's triumphant return from his late-90s Trauma Conga Line. Vapor Trails opens with the song One Little Victory... as Alex stated in Beyond the Lighted Stage, "it was a huge victory!"
  • After being more or less snubbed for fifteen years, the band was finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013. Neil's speech said it best:
    "We've been saying for years that this really wasn't a big deal. Turns out, it kinda is!"
    • Another gem from Neil in the same speech:
    "All of the previous inductees in this pantheon of rock are like a constellation of stars in the night sky. Among them, we are one tiny point of light. Shaped like a maple leaf."
  • While being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Neil gave a very well-written, eloquent speech. Geddy gave a much more casual but still gracious speech. Alex did this. While mostly done to be funny (which it was), it was also a very obvious dig at the Hall. He pulls "notes" out of his jacket towards the end, which seems to indicate he was going to make a proper speech, but decided not to... after all, the hall decided they weren't worthy of being inducted for 14 years. Why should he feel they were worthy of a real speech?
