Overview
-

The Canadian power trio Rush has been called the world's biggest cult band. Though critical favor eluded them for many years, the band has gained the admiration of legions of fans and sold over forty-million albums worldwide. In this unique book the reader is guided through each album, song by song, from the band's eponymous début in 1974 right up to 2012's Clockwork Angels.

Every album (both live and studio) is explored in detail with rare insight into the circumstances in which the band wrote and recorded each song. The book also carefully tracks the band's rise from a small suburb of Toronto to the arena filling giants they would become. This book explores every studio album, every live release as well as the solo projects of Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson. Each album is covered in unprecedented detail and the band's prolific output provides numerous milestones with which to chart their progress. From humble beginnings, near failure, critical disappointment, international success, and one of the most inspirational comeback stories in Rock; this is a must have book for any Rush fan.
