Quotes

Jack Black: Rush is just one of those bands that has a deep reservoir of rocket sauce. A lot of bands - they've only got so much in the bottle. They use it up sometimes in one song. These guys were the real deal. Their bottle was so big and so filled to the brim, they were shaking it literally for decades. And still there was sauce coming out.

It's like meeting old friends you haven't seen in years !
29 November 2012 | by (Melbourne Australia) – See all my reviews

Having gone through all my adult life enjoying the music from this band, this DVD was an awesome find ! Not so many years ago, you'd have to order and wait a long time for your record to arrive here in Australia, especially from an "underground"(?) band like RUSH. 3-6 months was not an unusual time-frame to receive your RUSH record, and you were thrilled when it arrived, and spellbound by the musicianship it displayed, only then to wonder in awe at how only 3 musicians managed to achieve this unbelievable music. I've seen a few DVD's featuring RUSH in concert, and these only confirmed or enhanced the immense respect I already had for these guys, as they are amazing... This particular movie is like nothing I've ever seen before, as it goes back to the very start with interviews of everyones family members (read parent's !), and leaves you feeling very much like one of the family, especially after these guys already being a big-part of my life for over 30 years. It flows very well from the very early High-school days etc to include current perspectives of each phase of their career as expressed by each band member.I never got bored once at all watching the 2-disc set, and still wanted more after viewing them in succession.It's better to watch it for yourself, but anybody would find this movie very-well-made and very entertaining, with plenty of rare live footage of a pretty good sound quality and picture, especially when one considers that some of it is nearly 40 years old. The talent that these guys had even as teenagers has to be seen to be believed, and leaves me humbled in knowing that after so many years, the band is still an incredible vital life force for great music. Possibly the best part was being able sit down, drink some wine, enjoy a great meal, and have a laugh with some dear friends. You don't know what I'm talking about ? You'll never know if you don't watch it !
