What's Inside?

Published 15th December 2022

 

The full amazing stories behind the songs, albums and concepts of Toronto's finest, as well as exclusive interviews and a Buyer's Guide.

 

Roughly 40 years into their career, a weird thing happened to Rush: they became cool. After decades of being ridiculed as sci-fi-fixated nerds making impenetrable prog rock for geeks everywhere, they finally found themselves hailed as one of the greatest bands in history. Everyone from Dave Grohl and members of Rage Against The Machine to Robert Downey Jr and the creators of South Park outed themselves as fans, while Rush themselves were deservedly - if belatedly – inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2013. Of course, if you’re reading this, you don’t need some Hollywood A-lister or faceless panel of cultural gatekeepers to tell you how brilliant the Canadian trio are. You’ve spent a lifetime immersing yourself in the records they made, from their Led Zeppelin-indebted debut album through to their glorious swansong Clockwork Angels. You’ve air-drummed for hours on end along to Overture from 2112 and Tom Sawyer, tried to work out just how many different time signatures there are in La Villa Strangiato and marvelled at the late, great Neil Peart’s dazzling, erudite lyrics. You might have even tried to make a case that Hold Your Fire is actually an insanely under-rated record (well, if you’re me you have). You’re the person we’ve put together this very special magazine dedicated to Rush for. Inside, you’ll find the very best articles and exclusive interviews from the archives of Classic Rock and Prog magazines, from the stories behind such landmark albums as 2112, A Farewell To Kings, Moving Pictures, Signals and Clockwork Angels to in-depth interviews with Messrs Lee, Lifeson and Peart. Factor in a rundown of the 40 greatest Rush songs as chosen by the stars plus a full Rush Buyer’s Guide, and you’ve got the ultimate tribute to Toronto’s finest. So crank up Xanadu, bust out the honey dew and milk of paradise, and get ready to immerse yourself in the career of a band like no other. Roughly 40 years into their career, a weird thing happened to Rush: they became cool.
