New Book—Rush: The Unauthorized Illustrated History
2004 Contents Under Pressure author Martin Popoff is coming out with Rush: The Unauthorized Illustrated History, slated for release May 15.
From the book’s back cover description on Amazon:
“Now, for the first time, Rush is treated to the epic visual celebration they so richly deserve!
NOTE: The book has now released (May 22, 2013). Read latest coverage.
“In this beautifully designed, richly illustrated history, prolific rock journalist and noted Rush authority Martin Popoff follows the world-conquering exploits of Geddy Lee, Neil Peart, and Alex Lifeson from the band’s formation in Toronto more than four decades ago to their 2012 Clockwork Angels release and subsequent world tour. Popoff’s stellar history is complemented by LP reviews from a slate of highly regarded music writers, a thorough discography compiled by the author himself, and more than 400 photographs and articles of memorabilia, running the gamut from candid backstage images and live performance photography to picture sleeves, gig posters, period print ads, ticket stubs, backstage passes, and more. The result is a visually stunning and authoritative review befitting the rock band with one of the world’s most devoted fan bases.”
Some of the reader reaction on Rush is a Band, which first reported on the new book:
“Remember the disjointed/bizarre review this guy wrote about ClockWork Angels. This guy is whacked!”
“another cash grab. but like the sucker that i am, i will pick this up.”
“I always wanted a Rush book that was “profusely illustrated”
“Alright something new to buy.”
“SWEEETT. I gotta have it.”
