Sharp Magazine Rush feature: Rush's Rock Renaissance
4:04PM EST | comments |

Rush is featured in the latest issue of Canadian men's magazine Sharp for an article titled Rush's Rock Renaissance. The article discusses Rush's surge in popularity in recent years, focusing specifically on their Rock Hall nomination. It features interview segments with Geddy Lee, Randy Bachman (of Bachman Turner Overdrive), producer Nick Raskulinecz, author Chris MacDonald (Rush, Rock Music and the Middle Class), Jian Ghomeshi, and RushCon creative director Jillian Maryonovich. Here are some comments from Geddy Lee on the band's unique style of music:

... "We're not a Top 40 band," says Lee. "So it's not easy for someone on the street, who'd never been exposed to us, to listen to a Rush song and say, 'Hey! Love that, man. How catchy!' It takes a little effort to get into our music. We've marginalized ourselves in a way. We're a strange little band." ...
