Contents Under Pressure: 30 Years of Rush at Home and Awayby Martin Popoff
Synopses & Reviews
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members and corroborating evidence from key insiders and press, this unprecedented examination features previously unpublished candid photographs by official band photographer Andrew MacNaughtan.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.
