Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


Where is Rush from?

When did Rush start and end?

Rush started in 1968, however, the current line-up of Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee, and Neil Peart wasn’t finalized until 1974 when the band released its self-titled debut album.

On December 7, 2015, Peart stated that he was retiring from the band and that the R40 Tour was the band’s last large-scale tour. In January 2018, Peart confirmed that Rush would no longer be recording new music or touring. Nearly two years later, Peart died of brain cancer. Though both Lifeson and Lee are still making music together, they have come out and said without Peart, there can be no Rush.

Who was in Rush?

Rush started in 1968 with band members Alex Lifeson (guitar), Jeff Jones (bass), and John Rutsey (drums). Jeff Jones was soon replaced by Geddy Lee, and John Rutsey was replaced by Neil Peart in 1974. The final line-up of Lifeson (guitar), Lee (vocals, bass, and keyboard), and Peart (drums) remained solid throughout the rest of the band's career.

How and when did Neil Peart die and where is he buried?

Neil Peart died after battling brain cancer for over three and a half years. He died on January 7, 2020, at the age of 67 and was buried in Santa Monica, California.

Who is Geddy Lee and how old is he?

Geddy Lee is the lead vocalist, bassist, and keyboardist of the band Rush. He was childhood friends with bandmate Alex Lifeson and replaced former band member Jeff Jones in 1968. He was born on July 29, 1953, and is now 70 years old.

What bass does Geddy Lee play?

Geddy Lee plays a 1972 black Fender Jazz Bass guitar which he bought for $200 in a Kalamazoo, Michigan pawnshop. He used this bass guitar to record different albums, from Permanent Waves to Clockwork Angels.

How much is Geddy Lee worth?

What guitar does Alex Lifeson play?

Alex Lifeson is the lead guitarist of Rush and plays a Gibson Les Paul Axcess — his favorite six-string guitar. He secured a partnership with the brand and continued to use this guitar in studio recordings and stage shows.

What does the song “Tom Sawyer” by Rush mean?

The song “Tom Sawyer” is inspired by the 1876 novel by Mark Twain which Pye Dubois made into a poem. This song is about being a “modern-day rebel” embodying a strong, warrior-like attitude — just like the character Tom Sawyer. It became an anthem for free-minded people that saw themselves as social misfits and outcasts.

In what episode of Trailer Park Boys does Ricky kidnap Alex Lifeson?

Ricky kidnaps Alex Lifeson in Season 3, Episode 5 of Trailer Park Boys entitled “Closer to the Heart” which aired on June 1, 2003. Alex Lifeson was kidnapped, so Ricky could get a backstage pass to a concert.

The song "Who's Got Yer Belly" was recorded for the Trailer Park Boys: Out of the Park USA standalone series which premiered November 24, 2017. Alex Lifeson helped the boys record and play the song — while also giving an impressive guitar performance.
