It's been a great rock & roll story for us to have been hearing over the past couple of years, imagine having lived it!! There's a new doc that fills in all the gaps and tells the tales of the four bearded Saskatooners who made it beyond the cover of Rolling Stone magazine to rock arenas everywhere!

Just might happen for Rush who've taken the power trio prowess all over the world to millions of fans in support of millions of albums sold. The first criteria to meet for eligibility for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is the artist or bands first release (single or album) has to have been 25 years before the nominated year.
