Rush

Over the course of their decades-spanning career, Canadian power trio Rush emerged as one of hard rock's most highly regarded bands; although typically brushed aside by critics and rarely the recipients of mainstream pop radio airplay, Rush nonetheless won an impressive and devoted fan following, while their virtuoso performance skills solidified their standing as musicians' musicians.

Rush formed in Toronto, Ontario, in the autumn of 1968, initially comprised of guitarist Alex Lifeson (born Alexander Zivojinovich), vocalist/bassist Geddy Lee (born Gary Lee Weinrib), and drummer John Rutsey. In their primary incarnation, Rush drew a heavy influence from Cream, and honed their skills on the Toronto club circuit before issuing their debut single, a rendition of Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away," in 1973. A self-titled LP followed in 1974, at which time Rutsey exited; he was replaced by drummer Neil Peart, who also assumed the role of the band's primary songwriter, composing the cerebral lyrics (influenced by works of science fiction and fantasy) that gradually became a hallmark of the group's aesthetic.

With Peart firmly ensconced, the band returned in 1975 with a pair of LPs, Fly by Night and Caress of Steel. Their next effort, 1976's 2112, proved their breakthrough release: a futuristic concept album based on the writings of Ayn Rand, it fused the elements of the trio's sound -- Lee's high-pitched vocals, Peart's epic drumming, and Lifeson's complex guitar work -- into a unified whole. Fans loved it -- 2112 was the first in a long line of gold and platinum releases -- while critics dismissed it as overblown and pretentious; either way, it established a formula from which the band rarely deviated throughout the duration of its career.

A Farewell to Kings followed in 1977 and reached the Top 40 in both the U.S. and Britain. After 1978's Hemispheres, Rush achieved even greater popularity with 1980's Permanent Waves, a record marked by the group's dramatic shift into shorter, less sprawling compositions; the single "The Spirit of Radio" even became a major hit. With 1981's Moving Pictures, they scored another hit of sorts with "Tom Sawyer," which garnered heavy exposure on album-oriented radio and became perhaps the trio's best-known song. As the 1980s continued, Rush grew into a phenomenally popular live draw as albums like 1982's Signals (which generated the smash "New World Man"), 1984's Grace Under Pressure, and 1985's Power Windows continued to sell millions of copies.

As the decade drew to a close, the trio cut back on its touring schedule while hardcore followers complained of a sameness afflicting slicker, synth-driven efforts like 1987's Hold Your Fire and 1989's Presto. At the dawn of the '90s, however, Rush returned to the heavier sound of their early records and placed a renewed emphasis on Lifeson's guitar heroics; consequently, both 1991's Roll the Bones and 1993's Counterparts reached the Top Three on the U.S. album charts. In 1996, the band issued Test for Echo and headed out on the road the following summer. Shortly thereafter, Peart lost his daughter in an automobile accident. Tragedy struck again in 1998 when Peart's wife succumbed to cancer.

Dire times in the Rush camp did not cause the band to quit. Lee took time out for a solo stint with 2000's My Favorite Headache; however, rumors of the band playing in the studio began to circulate. It would be five years until anything surfaced from the band. Fans were reassured in early 2002 by news that Rush were recording new songs in Toronto. The fruit of those sessions led to the release of Rush's 17th studio album, Vapor Trails, later that spring. By the end of the year a concert from the supporting tour was released on DVD as Rush in Rio.

In 2004 Rush embarked on their 30th anniversary tour, documented on the DVD R30, and in 2006 they returned to the studio to begin work on a new album. The resulting Snakes & Arrows was released in May 2007, followed by the CD/DVD set Snakes & Arrows Live in early 2008. Material from the latter was combined with footage from Rush in Rio and R30 for the CD/DVD compilation Working Men, which was released in 2009. A documentary on the band assembled by Toronto's Bangor Productions called Beyond the Lighted Stage appeared in 2010, followed a year later by another Bangor video production, Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland. Rush's 19th full-length studio album, Clockwork Angels, arrived in June of 2012. While the following year wouldn't bring a new album, it did deliver the next best thing by way of Vapor Trails: Remixed, which found producer David Bottrill revisiting one of the more notable victims of the so-called loudness wars. Along with a freshly repaired album, the band also released Clockwork Angels Tour, a three-disc live album recorded during their 2012 tour. ~ Jason Ankeny

Saw them in Houston in 84 for the Grace Under Pressure Tour at the Texas Jam and was blown away. Finally got to see them again with my daughter and two son's (their first ever concert) in Houston back in May. A new Rush generation lives on!!!!!!!!!

Gotta also mention that I experienced something I've never seen at a concert before. The women's restroom was empty but a HUGE line into the men's. I guess it's true; most chicks don't dig Rush. Props to my wife who does! She thought the lines into the restrooms were hilarious and a refreshing change for her.

I saw them last Thursday night in Irvine also. Haven't seen them since the mid 80's. Been wanting to see them for many years since, but never a good opportunity till now. 3 hour show starting with most recent and all the way thru the end with Working Man. Quickest 3 hours ever. Loved it! My all-time favorite band since my friends older brother turned us on to their Hemispheres album when it came out..

Saw them last night in Irvine. Hard to describe what seeing them live is like but to me it's comparable to seeing pictures or videos of the Grand Canyon, pretty awesome. Then you see it in person and you're blown away. Rush live is an unforgettabl e experience.

Just saw them in Seattle Sunday. What an amazing show. Such amazing musicians and Peart's books reveal what good men they are.

Their first release shows much of the hard rock sound typical of many of the popular rock bands emerging from Britain earlier in the decade, and it is the only album to not have Neil Peart as drummer.

It's up to us fans to keep the Rush legacy alive. I first saw them during the 2112 tour. All these years later, I've seen them more than I can remember. Both of my sons have seen them multiple times. My wife, daughter-in- l a w , and 2 nephews have seen them. I had all of them with me for the R-40 show in Columbus. This music will never die.

Musically, one cannot find a more disciplined band than Rush.
Hard to believe that these guys never touched drugs at all, and very limited use of alcohol as well, does anybody realize that all of the lyrics are written by the master percussionis t himself, Neal Peart?

Really love the older tunes by this awesome power trio, however, when they progressed to a more keyboard oriented sound during the mid to late 80's it kind of turned me off.... still, a great live show, although Geddy has had to adjust his vocals to a lower octave in order to sing the older tunes.
