Liner Notes

Rush is one of rock's most influential bands. Ranked third in consecutive gold or platinum albums after The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, the band enjoys a devoted following by legions around the world and is revered by generations of musicians. Yet, their incredible success story has, up to this point, remained largely untold. Now comes the new documentary Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage, the first comprehensive exploration of the extraordinary power trio. Featuring never-before-seen archival footage and interviews with notables such as Jack Black, Billy Corgan, Trent Reznor, Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Kirk Hammett (Metallica) and Gene Simmons, this film explores the forty-year career and phenomenon behind what could be the world's biggest cult band. This Blu-ray DVD in deluxe packaging features over 3 hours of video, including a 1.5 hour bonus disc of never-before-seen live performances, special features, and deleted scenes from the film. A 12 page color booklet of rare and unreleased photos is also included.

FROM THE DIRECTORS:
Growing up in Toronto, Rush was a major part of my upbringing. They played my sister's high school, my older brother had their logo stenciled on his bedroom door and while I was reading Narnia books I could hear Fly By Night being played on the living room stereo.

The bulk of rock 'n' roll mythology is built on stories from London and New York and I felt that it was time to explore a story that was closer to home. I wanted to add a chapter to rock history that is uniquely Canadian. After all Rush is Canada's biggest rock band and after 40 years - love them or not- you have to respect them.
- Scot McFadyen

Rush's music has always been a huge part of my life. As a teenage musician growing up in Victoria, BC, I sat in my bedroom for hours slaving over Geddy Lee's bass lines and obsessing over the lyrics on Farewell To Kings and Hemispheres. They were like no other band.

But as a documentary filmmaker, I've realized that Rush's impact is global. Rock and heavy metal fans around the world admire Rush for their artistic integrity and dedication to their craft. I discovered that they are one of Canada's great ambassadors and deserved a film all their own.
