RushI hope everyone has a great New Year's celebration this evening as we say goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014! As the year comes to a close, I'd just like to take some time out to thank all of the Rush fans who have visited my site over the past year and have helped me out by offering words of encouragement, contributing links, posting comments and sending along Rush-related news and information. A special thank you to everyone who has clicked on an ad, purchased products through my Amazon links or made a donation to the site. I wouldn't be able to keep the site up and running without your help. Thanks!!! 2013 was a monumental year for Rush with the band finally getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, embarking on a second leg of their highly successful Clockwork Angels tour and releasing an accompanying live video, and releasing their long-awaited remix of 2002's Vapor Trails. Despite the fact that 2014 will mark the 40th anniversary since the release of Rush's first album back in 1974, the band has indicated that they will not be embarking on any kind of R40 tour and will instead spend most of the year on a break from the band. That said, we've already learned that we'll at least be getting a re-issue of the debut album next year to mark the occasion, and hopefully the band will do something else special to celebrate. Assuming there won't be a tour or new album, how would you like to see the band celebrate its 40th anniversary? Take the poll and let us know. Happy Rush New Year!!!
