UPDATE - 10/31@10:23PM: Here's a large Facebook photo gallery from the event including several photos of Alex (thanks RushFanForever).

Back in May of 2014, rights management company Ole announced that they had purchased Core Music, the 40-year home of Rush's music publishing, and that they would be managing the music publishing affairs of the band for the foreseeable future. Last November they took things one step further and also acquired Rush's record label and home for over 40 years - Anthem Entertainment Group. Yesterday Ole hosted a private event titled Mission:Possible to celebrate the company's recent head office move to the top of 120 Bremner Tower, an ultra-modern 26,000 sq. ft. space in Toronto's vibrant tech and media district. The event also celebrated twelve consecutive years of growth and success in the music publishing and rights management industry. Several Ole artists were on hand at the event including members of Big Wreck, Lawrence Gowan and Alex Lifeson, as seen in this photo from Lawrence Gowan's Facebook page, and this photo from Ian Thornley's Instagram feed.
