Rush Awarded "Order Of Canada"

Last year at this time, all three members of Rush were awarded the highest civilian award from the Canadian government, making them "Officers of the Order of Canada". Rush was the first rock band to receive the award, which was created in 1967 for "significant achievement in important fields of human endeavor".  After the ceremony, Geddy told reporters "I'm just going to wear it all the time and see if it gets me better tables at restaurants" while Alex joked "I think I'll wear it to bed, maybe I'll get more respect that way." - Jam Music, February 27, 1997

History Of Rush CD-ROM

In an interview given during the Test For Echo tour, Neil Peart shared that the band was working on a CD-Rom "compendium" of Rush.  Unfortunately, this project was apparently shelved forever after his personal tragedies stuck.
"We are working on a proper CD-ROM about Rush. We actually have people working in the basement of the office, digging up videos and bits of information and all kinds of trivia being put into it. We really want to make it something that exploits the potential that CD-ROM has...with so many little side trips, and so many bits and pieces in there and little bits of my writing will show up in there and bits of other people's activities outside. We really want to make it a compendium. So, we're taking our time about that of course, because it is going to take a lot of work. Literally there are people digging through stuff. I wasn't exaggerating. It is going on, but it's going to take time." - Neil Peart Jam! Showbiz, Oct. 16, 1996
