Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Celebrating Rush's 30th anniversary, this retrospective of Canada's most successful music group examines each of the band's approximately 20 lauded records and sold-out tours, eliciting fresh insights into the marriage of Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee's classic, fearless art rock sound with Neil Peart's celebrated literary prowess. The product of extensive interviews with all three members and corroborating evidence from key insiders and press, this unprecedented examination features previously unpublished candid photographs by official band photographer Andrew MacNaughtan. Musings on playing live and the grind of touring are presented, revealing the trio's evolution over the past three decades. A critical eye is focused on the band's vast catalog, resulting in a comprehensive, forward-moving celebration of one of the most respected yet secretive bands in the music business — one that has never been revealed in book form so personally, directly, or so willingly.

Review:

"A wealth of information and amusing first-account stories, even for those who think they know everything about the group." Electricbasement.com

Review:

"Contents Under Pressure is....for the devoted, the fans who know every song, every shriek from Lee, every guitar burst from Lifeson, every drum fill from Peart....Spectacularly illustrated." Toronto Sun

Synopsis:

Contents Under Pressure: 30 Years of Rush at Home and Away is a detailed history of the exhaustive road experience of Canadian rock icons Rush. Celebrating the bands 30th anniversary, By-Tour features in-depth original interviews with Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart. Together, historys loudest Order of Canada recipients conjure the sights and sounds of their strange journey: one that began in the microscopic, sometimes hostile clubs of Ontario and culminated in hockey barns, arenas, and stadiums all over the world. Rush have been headliners for over 20 years. The announcement of an impending Rush tour is major entertainment news all over the world, and a cause for celebration for the fanatical following the band has created with their grace, humour, intellect, focus, and spellbinding musicianship. A visitor to this book will be justly rewarded with fresh, exclusive insights about this enigmatic Canadian institution.
