Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage

Over the years we faithful Rush fans have collected wall calendars, tour books, books authored by Neil Peart, leafed through various rehashed biographies of the band, and bought up the bands own musical releases as well as DVD Concerts and Video Collections and other documentaries like Backstage Secrets: On The Road With The Rock Band Rush. But this new production promises to be fresh, and shows various views of the band through their own eyes, as well as the eyes of fans and parents of fans.

There is no doubt that Rush has influenced millions of people worldwide, and now we get to hear about their inspiration and impact from famous fans like Gene Simmons, Trent Reznor, Kirk Hammet, Sebastian Bach, and Jack Black.

Filmmakers Sam Dunn and Scott McFadyen have produced other rock-focused motion picture releases including Iron Maiden: Flight 666
(which I ordered along with Beyond the Lighted Stage), and Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey among others. I can’t wait to see this latest film. A proper tribute to Rush is long overdue.
