A documentary with the rather bland title Rush: The Documentary may be released as early as this spring.
Rush are prog rock legends and will be inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall Of Fame next month, so it’s kind of hard to believe there’s never been an official documentary made about them.
But that will change with Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen’s aptly titled Rush: The Documentary, which could be released as early as May 18, according to Rush fansite Power Windows. No official announcement’s been made yet.
The Toronto filmmakers are known for previous work like Global Metal and Heavy Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey. They’ve been given exclusive access to the band’s personal archives, according to Prog magazine, which also reports Rush: The Documentary will feature interviews with artists like Trent Reznor, Tool, Foo Fighters, KISS and Billy Corgan, who’ve all been inspired by Rush.
Hopefully there will be some time dedicated to all the air drummers at Rush concerts who can do “Tom Sawyer” in their sleep.
