Rush winners in the 2014 Music Express Awards
Canadian music magazine Music Express has announced the winners in their 2014 Music Express Awards. Rush were nominated for 3 of the awards and ended up winning in all three categories. The band won for Top Group, Top Compilation Album (Clockwork Angels Tour) and Top Live Performance. The awards were determined by more than 10,000 Music Express readers who cast their vote for their favorite artists in the Canadian music industry via an online poll. You can check out the complete results online at this location.
On a related note, Rush will be featured in a new book titled Music Express: The Rise, Fall & Resurrection of Canada's Music Magazine, which is due out May 3rd and can be pre-ordered here. From the Amazon product listing:
"The story of Music Express is told through the unique perspective of Keith Sharp, the magazine's founder and editor. During its seventeen-year existence, Music Express rose from a small, Calgary-based regional magazine to an international publication. The interviews, anecdotes, and stories cover the golden era of Canadian music, with the rise to global status of such icons as Bryan Adams, Loverboy, Rush, Celine Dion, and Triumph. Their stories, as well as many more, are captured together with an array of classic rock photography that provides a unique time capsule."
