About the Band
Rush burst out of Canada in the early 1970’s, and since their self-titled album in 1974, Rush has become known for its musicianship, complex compositions, and eclectic lyrical motifs drawing heavily on science fiction, fantasy and philosophy. The trio – comprised of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart – has spent the last 40 years cultivating the largest cult fan base in rock while still managing to sell out arenas across the country. Recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2013, Rush is cited as a major influence by acts such as Foo Fighters, Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Smashing Pumpkins, and Dream Theater, among others.
Geddy Lee is the lead vocalist, bassist and keyboardist for Rush. Lee joined the band at its start in 1968 at the request of his childhood friend Alex Lifeson. An award-winning musician, Lee’s style, technique and skill on bass guitar has garnered him Bass Player Magazine Hall of Fame status with six consecutive awards for Best Rock Bassist. He has also been cited as a significant influence by some of the top bass names in rock.
Alex Lifeson is the guitarist for the band Rush. In addition to playing electric and acoustic guitar, Lifeson also plays other stringed instruments like the mandola, mandolin and bouzouki. Named in Guitar Player and Rolling Stone’s Greatest Guitarists annual lists, Alex fills out Rush's power-trio sound with a seamless mix of lush arpeggios and rock crunch that sounds like at least two players at once.
Neil Peart is the drummer and lyricist for Rush. He replaced the band’s original drummer John Rutsey in the summer of 1974, two weeks before the band’s first United States tour. Widely known for his technical proficiency, stamina, and gargantuan drum kit, Peart has received numerous awards for his musical performances and frequently tops “Best Living Drummer” and “Drummer of the Year” Reader polls.
<i> Billboard </i> - While Lifeson, Lee and Peart ponder that future, Rush is leaving fans with "Rush: Clockwork Angels Tour" on CD, DVD and Blu-ray, which comes out Nov. 19 with a one-night-only screening at movie theaters the previous night, Nov. 18 (fathomevents.com has details). The set captures one of Rush's more interesting tours, with a repertoire that touched on a wealth of rarely played 80s material and a show that also made use of a string section, the Clockwork Angels String Ensemble, with arrangements by David Campbell.
