Skip Daly and Eric Hansen's new book Rush: Wandering the Face of the Earth: The Official Touring History officially releases tomorrow, October 29th, and is already appearing on bookstore shelves at Barnes & Noble and other retail outlets. Last week publisher Insight Editions announced an official book signing and launch party at Toronto's Another Story Bookstore on Saturday, November 9th. The event will feature a signing with the book's authors, followed by a Q&A discussion moderated by Skip and Eric and special guests, including Andy Curran, Gary 'Doc' Cooper, Bill Rutsey, and more (although no band members are scheduled to appear unfortunately). You can get all the details via the Another Story website or the Facebook event page. As is apparent from the book's title, Rush: Wandering the Face of the Earth chronicles Rush's entire decades-spanning touring history, including setlists, opening acts, new imagery and every noteworthy moment meticulously researched and vetted by the band themselves. The book also includes a foreword by Primus front-man Les Claypool, an afterword by Police drummer Stewart Copeland and an introduction by Rush lighting director Howard Ungerleider. Several preview pages and scans can be seen in this post and also here. John over at Cygnus-X1.net has also posted Claypool's foreword along with some more photos from the book which you can check out at this location. Author Skip Daly also shared some teaser photos and book excerpts to his Facebook page, including this post about early Rush friend/driver Doc Cooper. You can order Rush: Wandering the Face of the Earth on Amazon at this location.
