A new book on Rush by veteran music writer Max Mobley titled Rush FAQ: All That's Left To Know About Rock's Greatest Power Trio will be released on April 29th and is currently available for pre-order. From the Amazon description:

...Rush FAQ studies the evolution of the bands sound, from the early days of Zeppelin-esque blues-rock to complex, synth-laden opuses to the return of concept-album bombast with the critically acclaimed Clockwork Angels. With wit, humor, and authority, music industry veteran and unabashed Rush geek Max Mobley examines the music, gear, personalities, and trials and tribulations of one of rock and rolls truly legendary acts. It is a story Rush fans will treasure and rock and roll fans will admire.

Max Mobley is a music industry veteran who has been writing about Rush for over a decade, most notably as a columnist for Crawdaddy! and Premier Guitar. Mobley has interviewed Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson twice and seen countless Rush shows dating back to the A Farewell to Kings tour. He has kindly provided a copy of the book's introduction which you can check out at the bottom of the post. You can pre-order your copy of Rush FAQ at this location.

Good luck with the FAQ brand. When I hear that I think, cheap printing of unlicensed random facts....

"...wearing wizardy-looking robes and looking super serious-like a cerebral version of soul-possession serious."

#2, just to clarify: The title reflects the FAQ "series" or "brand". Kiss, U2, and Black Sabbath are some of the others currently in print.

When I first saw the headline for this, I wondered if somebody had just ripped off the old TNMS Rush FAQ...

Not the greatest title but I enjoyed the intro.

I doubt that there will be anything here that is new, but I am considering it nonetheless.
