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.
As is sometimes the tradition at the music industry back-patting event, past inductees are invited back to introduce members of the new class.
In homage to their fellow prog-rock torchbearers and kindred spirits, Rush’s Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson will step onto the Barclays Center stage to wax lyrical about Yes and then hand the honour to Jon Anderson, Bill Bruford, Rick Wakeman, Steve Howe, Alan White, Tony Kaye, Trevor Rabin and Chris Squire’s wife Scottie who is accepting on her late husband’s behalf.
A huge fan of Yes, Geddy Lee said in 2013 that it was “disappointing” and “just wrong” that Yes weren’t inducted alongside his band that year.
Alongside Rush, it has been confirmed that Neil Young will be introducing Pearl Jam. The two acts share a mutual admiration and performed together at the 1993 MTV Music Awards and collaborated on Young’s 1995 record ‘Mirror Ball’.
Young is repaying the favour to Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder who inducted him into the Hall of Fame in 1995 calling him "a great songwriter, a great performer, a great Canadian."
Completing the trio of 2017 inductor announcements, Jackson Browne will introduce folk icon Joan Baez at the ceremony.
Also being inducted this spring are Journey, Electric Light Orchestra and the late rapper Tupac Shakur.
-thirds of Rush will introduce Yes at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on 7th April. As is sometimes the tradition at the music industry back-patting event, past inductees are invited back to introduce members of the new class.
The Tech 21 Geddy Lee Signature SansAmp GED-2112 is a bass preamp in a single rackspace unit that features parallel pre-amping – meaning two separate internal preamps that run in parallel. It has a Drive section based on the SansAmp RPM as well as a Deep preamp section that dishes out a low end boost.
“Saturation goes from clean in lower settings to increased harmonics and tube-like compression in higher settings,” the company writes. “To keep things lean and efficient, the EQ curve is pre-set to Geddy’s personal specs. You can use either section independently or blend them externally direct to a mixing board as well as to two amplifiers.”
Other features include a Blend control, a sweepable semi-parametric EQ, dedicated 1/4-inch and XLR direct outputs for each preamp section, an effects loop with Mix 50/50 switch, a tuner output, a clean 1/4-inch output, and a front panel A/B switch.
“The GED-2112 is really a continuation of my long-time approach to bass tone,” Lee says. “A ‘deep clean’ tone coupled with the ‘edgy crunch’ I get from the SansAmp RPM now all in one box. With selectable A/B inputs, and separate balanced and unbalanced direct outputs, this box is the foundation for great bass tone in any setup. Plus it’s green!”
The Tech 21 Geddy Lee Signature SansAmp: GED-2112 is expected later this year with a street price of $369.
