I received an ARC copy of this book from the publisher from NetGalley.

This book is a comprehensive guide to the music of Rock’s greatest trio, Rush. The author begins with a brief biography of each member of the band and how fate and their love of music brought them together at a young age. I was impressed with the chapter on John Rutsey, the original drummer, which chronicles his influence on the founding of the band and his pivotal decision to leave the band. One of the most interesting parts

His treatment of the band's gear in this book was especially noteworthy. However, I found myself getting a little tired of the play-by-play descriptions of video segments from Rush's DVDs. I can wa ...more

This book was full of exciting surprises, great information and fun pictures. Mobley's writing style is so easy to swallow. His energy and passion for this band just jumped right off the page! I have loved this band for years so it was great to read this and commune with someone who feels the same way.
Alex Lifeson is the best guitar player in rock and roll and it's outrageous that he doesn't get the credit he so deserves. Yeah, Neil is great and Geddy too, but Alex is so tasteful and full of po
