Lee, Lifeson and Peart have provided an often obsessive lifetime mission for countless of hopeful, thoughtful, ambitious musicians through a wide scope of times and climes.

The all-walks array of musicians you see gathered here is testimony to that fact.

Rush were heavy when heavy was not cool, Rush comprised a clear and clear-headed three guys playing their hearts and minds out on sleeve and stage. Rush made you want to play better than that other guy in class, also providing a reading list for mind-feeding while you recovered from bleeding fingers, tender blood blisters and tendonitis.

And they did this in waves, to full currents of aspiring rockers, beginning thereabouts with underground breakthrough 2112 in 1976, that record combining science fiction with philosophy (Ayn Rand) and literature (George Orwell), metal with progressive rock (Rush single-handedly birthed progressive metal – a huge musical genre today), also delivering one of the early concept albums.

Rush is one of the few bands to conquer the divide between the more intimate progressive rock listener and FM rock radio. When bands like Yes and ELP were having trouble staying on the airwaves, Rush maintained their visibility. Always updating their sound but keeping those familiar touches.
