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, Rovi

Nice, 7th grade. Remember Rush very well. 2112 WOW
Rush rules.
After 30 years I'm finally going to see them again in Irvine, CA this coming July for my birthday. I remember buying tickets for around 15 bucks back in the day. They MUST make more money from concerts now than they did then. They ain't cheap that's for sure!
Geddy Lee the best bassist in music.
This is one of my favorite bands ever!!!!!!!
Can't imagine my world without them. There will never be an equal to them. Nothing to compare them to. Thank you RUSH for being a meaningful force in my life for 33+ years. See you June 14th!!!!!
Rush Dominates!

June 23 in Boston. Can't freakin' wait!!!
The three man band
The best ever. I don't know what the world would be like without RUSH.
The BEST, period.
behun2
I grew up in Rochester, NY .. Rush was played a lot on the sound of the underground WCMF in the early 70's. Good stuff, nice to hear them a couple week's ago on HBO's Togetherness where they played Tom Sawyer and explained the song.
The only band that matters...nu f f said.
Rush aka The Rich Man's Triumph.
One of Canada's best exports, along with Whiskey, beer and loose women.
Rush kicks butt ����
Bubbles, what's up? TPB
jwsm85
Play more Rush that's why I created a Rush station! If I wanted AC/DC , the who , Kansas , Rolling Stones etc etc. I would have created a station based on those artists!
Rush Rules.
2112 what a story. Loved it& still listen
9yr old son is becoming a fan, especially of the guitar work as he is now taking up guitar himself. As for me I'm 53 and have been a fan since 2112 was released.
Air drums!!!!!! lol
My favorite band! Just got tickets for their concert in May����✌
These guys have always been my heroes. They're my inspiration, whether it be in writing music, lyrics, or short stories. Each one of them are the best at what they do.
How do they get similar artists as Led Zep, Floyd, Boston, Van Halen or the Who? They should have just left that one empty.
Trying to turn on my two year old to Rush. Not sure he gets it yet. I'll keep trying!
The best of the best. Can't believe there are only 3 of them when you listen to the music.
Rush you guys still rock keep it up!!!!
THE BEST 3 man band....peri o d
I heard Rush for the first time when I was in junior high school (2112) and peddaled my bike about 8 miles to the tumbleweed connection record store and bought the album. I have been a huge fan ever since. I seen the Signals tour and then several more over the years. I would like to see them on tour this year but I don't think I can afford it because of TicketBaster d s outrageous prices.(they suck). Please Alex or Geddy send me some free tickets (contact me at deadandwicke d @ v e r i z o n . n e t )
Best 3 man band

Rush may not be my favorite band , but I believe in "the Freedom of Music " !!
My first concert was Power Windows in 1986. My late best friend would die just weeks after this concert. He got me hooked on Rush and one of their main influences, Yes. I am ever thankful for his appreciation of progressive music. It is the genre for the Ages, never going out of style. God bless you all.
Rush ranks among my top bands of all times. Best drummer is Neil Peart by a landslide. First saw Signals Tour in my senior year of High School. I wrote in my yearbook Im the Digital Man' as I knew at that age I would be a software engineer. Saw Rush five times, including Counterparts tour...
