It’s been said so many times. When it comes to the subject of Canadian rock trio Rush, people either love them or hate them. I suppose it is obvious to regular readers here that I categorize myself firmly among the former.
Many Rush fans feel that the group has never received the attention and recognition that they deserve. Some fans are particularly galled by the group’s omission from the Rock And Roll Hall of fame.
Times may be changing however, according to some recent comments by guitarist Alex Lifeson.
It was reported that Rolling Stone magazine, a publication that has not had the friendliest relationship with the Canadian rockers, has sent a reporter to Canada to spend four days with the group doing interviews, which makes Lifeson wonder if they are planning a cover story featuring the group.
"If they want to do a cover story on Rush, then something’s changing somewhere,” Lifeson says.
