Experiencing Rush: A Listener's Companion is slated for a 2014 release:Introduction: Why Rush?Additional details about Bowman's book are available at his website.
The Canadian rock band Rush has mainly explored an eccentric, album-oriented “progressive hard rock” style, sometimes bridging it with heavy metal (especially in the 1970s), new wave and synth rock (1980s), and alternative rock (1990s). In its music, lyrics, and career path, Rush has remained stubbornly individualist, and its several dozen albums (45 million sold) and major concert tours have appealed to musicians and others interested in certain types of structural complexities and serious issues. The group continued to pursue its own path well into the 2000s and in 2013 was inducted into the US-based Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The band is Geddy Lee (bass guitar and vocals), Alex Lifeson (guitars), and Neil Peart (drums & percussion and lyrics).
