When you think doctorate Rock bands don’t immediately come to mind but all three band members of Rush will receive an honorary degree from an Ontario University soon and it makes sense!!! Drummer Neil Peart is an accomplished author of many books and an accomplished musician as is Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson. Rush’s music is, for lack of a better description and a perfect analogy for this piece , INTELLIGENT!! It’s the first round of honorary degrees given by Nipissing University here in Ontario. This comes with the other accolades Rush has enjoyed over their career like the multiple Juno Awards the induction into the Canadian and US (Rock n Roll) Hall’s of Fame. It’s been revealed that Rush will get back on track in 2015 taking this year off to refurbish the engines!!
