A Tribute To Rush
The progressive rock trio RUSH released their first album in 1974. Shortly thereafter, Alex Lifeson (guitars) and Geddy Lee (bass, vocals and keyboards) were joined by Neil Peart (percussion, lyricist). After over 40 years together the band has released a total of 20 studio albums, 11 live albums as well as numerous compilation albums, of which 24 have gone gold, and 14 platinum.
Here you will find current news, a complete discography with lyrics, a videography, listings of RUSH members' solo projects and guest appearances, as well as the most extensive RUSH tour archive to be found online or in print. Other resources include a wide-ranging listing of RUSH related literature, cover songs and albums, tributes, a pop culture section and more. Along with the information archive, this site includes a slew of RUSH offerings including album art wallpaper for your PC and Smartphone, and Windows users can utilize Themes inspired by the album art and music of RUSH.
Sucking the 70s: Back in the Saddle Again, a 2-CD classic rock covers compilation released February 27, includes a cover of Rush's unreleased "Garden Road" by the band Mos Generator ["Garden Road" is an unreleased Rush original last performed live on the '74 tour; in the 1988 "Rush Backstage Club Newsletter", when asked why it was never officially released, Neil replied, "... original songs written before I joined the band... Well, why do you think we never recorded them?"]
On a related note, a cover of "Working Man", performed by the Suplecs, was included on Sucking The 70s released in 2002.
Released only in Canadian theaters last October, Trailer Park Boys: The Movie was released on DVD February 20th. A must for Rush fans, Trailer Park Boys fan Alex Lifeson has a cameo role as a police officer in the film, which also includes many Rush references. Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee also perform on the soundtrack (for more information regarding the soundtrack, click here).
