Three essential Rush videos

Having just watched the complete, unedited CNN interview with Rush (thanks, Rushisaband), I realized this video completes a modern picture of the band, along with Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage and Classic Albums: 2112 and Moving Pictures.

The CNN interview, with John Roberts, has the missing piece: Neil Peart sitting with his two bandmates, answering questions about the band and life. (I can't remember the last time I saw all three members interviewed at the same time.) In many ways, this is a coda to Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage, with the band reflecting on both their career and the reaction to the documentary.

While Geddy, Alex, and Neil might have theories about why they've continued rocking for this long, it's pretty clear that Rush is an anomaly in the music industry. It's a fascinating interview.

For all I know there might be more interviews coming like this, but if you haven't already I suggest watching these three videos together.


Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage

Classic Albums: 2112 and Moving Pictures (not available yet but you can save to your queue)
