Rush In The Studio For Moving Pictures 35th Anniversary (Top Story)


.
On Thursday Rush In The Studio For Moving Pictures 35th Anniversary was a top story. Here is the recap: (ITS) The latest episode of the syndicated radio show In The Studio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands celebrated the 35th anniversary of Rush's landmark album, Moving Pictures. The show sent over the following details:

Sales alone do not convey the importance of their eighth studio album Moving Pictures to Rush's long career, nor to rock music itself. "Music was changing," Rush lead singer/composer Geddy Lee tells us in this InTheStudio episode, and without Lee, guitarist/composer Alex Lifeson and drummer/lyricist Neil Peart embracing the fresh musical ideas in the crosswinds of the early Eighties with songs "Tom Sawyer", "Red Barchetta", "Limelight", "Vital Signs" and "Witch Hunt", it is doubtful that a path to mainstream success would have been cleared for later major bands including Metallica, Queensryche, Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan, Dave Grohl's Foo Fighters, Tom Morello with Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave, and Dream Theater.

InTheStudio host Redbeard speaks to Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart about the significance of Moving Pictures to the Rush legacy. Lee says "It (Moving Pictures) gave us a kind of acceptance and credibility that none of our previous records had previously done."

Lifeson adds, "It was very enjoyable making Moving Pictures. It flowed, everything sounded good. The vibe was good, everybody was in great spirits during the whole process."

Peart concludes, "Being a trio is something that is special to us and I think it's special to our fans too... We are known as a trio. Our reputation has a lot to do with our live show and what the three of us can do live." Stream the episode - here.
