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

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...

Me and my boys Rickey and Jullian, live in sunnyvale trailer park, we see these guys live all of the time, I live in my shed with my kittys.

Honesty.... Compromises. . . . I n t e g r e . . C a n YOU Spell The Rest??????
You guys are tight Great!!
Thank u 4 understandin g . D . D .
Oh and also good job pandora actually getting the bio right, unlike some other good bands.
Since I'm younger, I only have seen time machine once and clockwork angels twice, but people I know have had a perfect attendance since like 1980. Go rush!
In The Round.....
Thin lizzy. I seen live! Leslie west. Wow.
UFO, now that's one I forgot about.
Great music will always withstand the test of time. Rush's music will be played and loved for centuries to come. If mankind survives, then so will RUSH!
I was asked to write a review of the Rush Documentary Beyond the Lighted Stage. It was as if I was doing a term paper on the most formative years of my life. I recall locking myelf into one of the HI-FI booths at the library at the University of Florida in 1981, where I would listen to Permanent Waves. I remember thinking how smart I felt listening to their music.

The fact is now at this age, and realizing that they are near the end of their careers gives my heart a dull ache. As I look b

First time I saw these guys was June, 1976. I think the opening acts were UFO and Thin Lizzy. Have seen them 11 more times but none since the Presto tour in 89. Expensive ticket nowadays.
Thks, for helping get my day started.

Rush is in good company when it comes to getting panned and ignored by the critics. Jethro Tull comes to mind. It's got to be a good sign considering the tripe they do critique. Rush has always been relevant and important in the history of rock music. Just as the nominating committee for the RR Hall of Fame lacks any musicians, the critics tend to be just as lame. Butt-holes and opinions, everyone's got one.
A dear lost friend brought me to a Rush Concert. I will never forget it. The poetry...Mus i c . . . V e r y tight....Goo s e b u m p s . . .
NEIL PEART well rides bikes. Writes music. Plays music. O yea and plays the drums. Never to be duplicated. EVER
Fabulous. Classic. Long live Rush!

Good morning, to RUSH
I have to agree with all the other comments. Rush has been a part of my life ever since I was a kid. I was 13 and my first concert was Grace Under pressure. And have only missed as couple of their shows since. Looking forward for more shows in the future. Thank you guys for all you have done and performed for us all.
Rush is the BEST band in the world love you guys!!!!!���
My next show will be my 50th and probably the last of an amazing run.There isn't one album or one song that i don't love. Still haven't recovered from the 3 Power Windows shows or the R30 tour! Nothing beats a Rush show in Philadelphia , nothing beat a RUSH show........ PERIOD!
Thank God there are still cool people that know what good music is. My 15 year old son loves Rush. If he liked that crap that is out now I just don't know what I would do.
In addition to all the love that's been posted before this, I must add that these three artists are masters of their respective crafts. They create some awesome music that is difficult to adequately describe. All I know is that it has been part of my life for close to four decades, and I have loved all of it. And the so called musicians nowadays are not fit to fold the underwear of the members of Rush. Rock on, boys !
Fill the power of three!!!!! VERY LOUD.
RUSH is better than your favorite band.
The apex of instrumental prowess and lyrical depth, RUSH-ON!
On top of the world forever journey....
Love em, can't wait for summer to see them
Holy trinity of rock
julian537
My favorite band ever.
