RUSH IS THAT IT?

It indeed looks that way... things can change and indeed might in the future, as a RUSH fan we can only hope but for now...

THANK YOU Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee and Neil Peart!

I truly consider myself blessed having become a RUSH fan in February, 1975! No I did not start with RUSH, RUSH but with Fly By Night. The guitar player in my band came over, handed me the album cover and liner, and then changed my life forever, the needle dropped down on Anthem! Then Best I can, Beneath, Between & Behind, By-Tor, Fly By Night… this tour-de-force just kept on pounding me with music the likes I had never heard before! Then the liner, with Terry Brown, beard and all at this massive console, Herns with his flight case and wild hair, but the sound… Right away I knew RUSH was well above anything I had heard before and this is still true today!

The band never rests on their laurels, they always continue to get better, they adjust to the times; they are role models how it should be done. Three monster musicians that are also best friends, Neil’s lyrics, life stories that only Geddy could sing, one never walks away from one of their shows disappointed, the band always gives 100%, they leave nothing on the stage.

2112 became the fans RUSH anthem and still is to this day. It allowed RUSH to control their own destiny, they did not sell out. All The Worlds A Stage, we love their tours, here was a first to hear their live shows, combine that with the cover, I am sure many RUSH fans just sat back and smiled, reminiscing about shows they have seen, musicians wanting to be on that stage!

I have had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know many of those behind the scenes in the RUSH camp. They like the band are inspirational, the best in the business and truly great people!

Terry Brown, one of the nicest individuals I have had the fortune of meeting and to call my friend! Terry has worked with the who’s who as a recording and mixing engineer and is a Producer Extraordinaire, a giant the industry and a true gentleman.

Pegi Cecconi QOFE, she is a Queen in the Canadian music industry, thank you for the support of many years, you have been wonderful, helping with the Road Crew Interviews, access to events that a lot do not get to attend, I am eternally grateful!

Tim Notter, co-owner of the famous Orbit Room. Providing 20 plus years of musical entertainment in Toronto’s Little Italy! We have shared some great times, boat cruises, golf tournaments, anniversary parties, the best little place in Toronto, there is nothing little about the talent that have graced it’s stage!

Howard Ungerleider, the creative genius behind 41 years of live RUSH productions, has he ever let us down! I always look forward to visiting PDI or hearing about the new innovations in the lighting, Production business.

Lorne Wheaton, road warrior and a king among techs! I never get tired of hearing who you are working for, especially, “The Boss”, getting to document you setting up the Time Machine kit in Cleveland will always be a highlight in my life!

The guys on the road crew that I interviewed, Scott Appleton, David Davidian, Brad Madix, Brent Carpenter, John Arrowsmith, and Patrick McLachlan.

Allan Weinrib and Dale Heslip at Fadoo Productions, who bring us the funny videos, stage backlines, and live show recordings.

Hugh Syme, his artwork and cover concepts, tour books, the list can go on and on are nothing short of brilliant. Another giant in the industry!

SRO-Anthem staff: Emma, Meghan, Andy, Veronica, and those gone, Shelley Nott.

One should not forget long time RUSH photographer, Andrew MacNaughtan, another creative genius associated with the band.
