Rush is a Canadian rock band formed in August 1968 in Toronto, Ontario. The band is composed of bassist, keyboardist, and lead vocalist Geddy
Lee, guitarist and backing vocalist Alex Lifeson, and drummer, percussionist and lyricist Neil Peart.
Since the release of the band's self-titled debut album in March 1974, Rush has become known for its musicianship, complex compositions, and
eclectic lyrical motifs drawing heavily on science fiction, fantasy, and philosophy. Rush's music style has changed over the years, beginning with
blues-inspired heavy metal on their first album, then encompassing hard rock, progressive rock, and a period with heavy use of synthesizers.
Rush has won a number of Juno Awards, and was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1994.
Over their careers, the members of Rush have been acknowledged as some of the most proficient players on their respective instruments, with
each band member winning numerous awards in magazine readers polls.
