By Vinay Menon
Few bands have dominated the music industry like RUSH: 20 studio albums, eight live discs, more than 43 million records sold. Creative, prolific and fiercely independent, RUSH ranks third for most consecutive gold or platinum studio albums by a rock band, behind only The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. On April 18th, they will finally be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Star journalist Vinay Menon has been granted unprecedented access to all three RUSH members, their families, friends and colleagues and has used these interviews to weave a riveting oral history of one of Canada's most beloved bands. Poignant and perceptive, RUSH: An Oral History is an unforgettable read for fan and newcomer alike.
