RUSH is a Canadian prog-rock power trio. Since their self-titled debut
RUSH in 1975, the unit of Alex Leifson (face-melter), Neil Peart (unstoppable fire-breathing precussional force) and Geddy Lee (vocals, keys, hair) have released 24 gold records. This ranks 3rd behind some clowns you may have heard of called The Rolling Stones and The Beatles. Still, they have yet to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Bureaucratic nonsense.
