Jann Wenner’s Surprise
Jann Wenner, the founder of Rolling Stone magazine and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, has a reputation for not caring too much for Rush’s music. But he was gracious in his introduction of them at the 2013 Rock Hall induction ceremony. He also had a little fun, too, saying he had no reason to announce who they are because the house gave the band a standing ovation even before their name was announced.
The standing ovation was exactly 60 seconds long. Here’s a clip of it that includes the surprised look on everyone’s faces.
