“One of the few working democracies in the world today”
Ever heard of Gary Lee Weinrib? Not likely to ring a bell.
But if I said Geddy Lee, I expect that more than a few of you would immediately identify him as the lead singer of the classic Canadian rock band Rush, still releasing albums 35 years after their debut.
This month finds the release of the band’s latest compilation, Retrospective 3, which compiles their best material of the last 20 years.
I have to admit that I haven’t paid much attention to the band recently and am more likely to recognize lyrics from a song like The Trees than anything off this retrospective.
Yet, there is no denying that Rush has a unique backstory and an amazing capacity for survival in an industry that eats its own.
Skip over the other links if you must, but at least treat yourself to some classic Rush. A little Limelight is good for the soul.
