Guitarist Alex Lifeson of Canadian rock legends RUSH recently answered a number of questions for listeners of the U.K. digital radio station Planet Rock. Check out the footage below.
Two new digital-only RUSH collections, entitled “The Complete Mercury Years” and “The Studio Albums 1989-2007”, were released via iTunes on May 14.
“The Complete Mercury Years” contains RUSH‘s complete Mercury catalog (all their albums up through “A Show Of Hands”) for $79.99, including the new “2112” Deluxe Edition and the 2008 “Working Man” compilation.
“Rush: The Studio Albums 1989-2007” contains the entire Atlantic-era RUSH studio catalog (“Presto” through “Snakes Arrows”) for $49.99. Both collections are digital only and mastered for iTunes.
RUSH was honored in the “Rock Album Of The Year” category at this year’s Juno Awards (the Canadian equivalent of the Grammy Awards), for their latest studio CD, “Clockwork Angels”.
RUSH‘s first new collection of original material in over five years and their first studio release via Anthem/Roadrunner Records, “Clockwork Angels”, sold 103,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 2 on The Billboard chart.
