If you like Rush you need to watch
29 June 2010 | by dougljSee all my reviews

I have been a fan of this band since I was 14 years old. I first saw them live at Madison Square Garden in NYY (1981). My two older brothers introduced me to Rush and I have loved them since.

This film / documentary chronicles the band from their very beginnings to today. If you are a Rush fan or if you want to learn about a band from Canada that has influenced so many other bands around the world you need to check out this film.

Check it out just to listen to their music.

A band from Toronto with a song called YYZ, can you ask for anything more!
