Watch Rush’s Honorary Doctorate Speeches

Foggy skies may have stood in the way of Rush’s Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson from receiving their honorary doctorates from Nipissing University yesterday (June 12th) in person, but it didn’t stop them from recording very insightful speeches for the graduating class.

Embedded below, Lee and Lifeson’s speeches reflect on their past experiences, both personal and as bandmates, and drove home to the graduates the value of hard work and perseverance.

Clocking in together at just over five minutes, their speeches are short and straight to the point but pack a heartfelt punch.  If anyone in your family is set to graduate soon (or just needs a boost of inspiration), you’ll want to pass these videos on.
