Several old early-80s interviews/clips were recently uploaded to YouTube and I've linked them below. These are all taken from VHS and the quality is a little grainy but all are definitely worth checking out. Other than the 1980 interview clip, I hadn't seen any of these before.

[Japanese interview with Alex and Geddy from 1984]: This is a clip from a 1984 interview with Alex and Geddy from Japanese TV.

[Rush recognized at televised 1983 Awards ceremony]: This is a clip from a televised 1983 Awards ceremony in Montreal where Rush won Top Canadian Group and Top Live Group. The group appears via a pre-recorded clip to accept the award.

[Rush live clip from 1980 news broadcast]: This is a short 2-minute clip of Rush performing 2112 live in Buffalo, NY back in 1980. It's taken from a Buffalo TV station's news broadcast.

[Clip from a 1980 interview]: This is a clip from a 1980 interview with all 3 members. The full interview was included as an extra on the R30 DVD bonus disc.
