Fully revised and updated, Rush is a richly illustrated history of one of the world's greatest rock bands.
In 1974, a Canadian rock band called Rush took the music scene by storm. Throughout the 1970s and raging into the 1980s, the band grew a tidal wave of followers and produced such hit songs as "Limelight," "Subdivisions," and "Tom Sawyer." Inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013, this progressive rock, hard rock, and heavy metal band is destined to go down in history as legendary. The band continues to make history today.
Rush: The Illustrated History is a fully updated, richly illustrated history from prolific rock journalist and noted Rush authority Martin Popoff. The book follows the world-conquering exploits of Rush band members Geddy Lee, Neil Peart, and Alex Lifeson from the band's formation in Toronto to their fortieth anniversary celebration and tour. Popoff's stellar history is complemented by LP reviews from a slate of highly regarded music writers, a thorough discography compiled by the author himself, and more than 400 photographs and articles of memorabilia, from candid backstage images and live performance photography to picture sleeves, gig posters, period print ads, ticket stubs, backstage passes, and more. The result is a visually stunning and authoritative review befitting the rock band with one of the most devoted fan bases ever.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I learned a lot about my favorite band that I didn't know! I enjoyed the background info and notes and reviews of all their albums over the years. I think this is a must-read for any Rush fan. Sad that I missed R40; somehow they were off my radar when they came to ATL; the book helped give background to what seems to be 'the end' of their touring. Very sad but great to read about them!
I absolutely love Rush and have been trying to find a book about them for a while. This one could be considered coffee table quality. It covers all their albums up to Clockwork Angels, with those in the music industry writing each chapter. Each album is discussed and insight is given to the trio. It is like having Beyond The Lighted Stage in book form, so to speak, although the two are unrelated. If you enjoy Rush, you will probably enjoy this book.
Boyfriend boycotted the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame until Rush was entered and then wore a Rush t shirt during his tour. He enjoyed this book immensely and learned much more, he of the trivia pursuit, bar competitions. Highly recommended.
