Ever since the release of their self-titled debut album in 1974, Rush has been at the forefront of musical exploration and artistic creativity through their unique and ever-evolving progressive-rock sound. Few could argue the incredible virtuosity that this trio of Canadian musicians possess. From the ferocious bass playing and utterly unique vocal stylings of front man Geddy Lee, to the sizzling and profoundly deep guitar work of Alex Lifeson, to the prodigious, mind-blowing drumming and lyrical genius of Neil Peart, Rush has established themselves as one of rock's most talented groups.
Cygnus-X1.Net was created to help celebrate Rush's decades-spanning collection of work which has had a profound impact on millions of fans the world over. This site offers up a unique retrospective on the body of work that Rush has created by utilizing the artistic images and moving lyrics that embody each album. A happy blend of style with substance.
I invite both fans and the casual visitor to explore the site and take away a renewed (or new) appreciation for one of the most influential rock bands of all time. From their collection of pioneering studio and live albums, to their countless concerts performed in front of legions of enthralled fans, to the critically acclaimed release of their 20th studio album Clockwork Angels, Rush continues to elicit respect and excitement the rock-world over.
Enjoy the site
