Summary:

The definitive biography of the rock 'n' roll kings of the North

With extensive, first-hand reflections from Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart, as well as from family, friends, and fellow musicians, Anthem: Rush in the '70s is a detailed portrait of Canada's greatest rock ambassadors. The first of three volumes, Anthem puts the band's catalog, from their self-titled debut to 1978's Hemispheres (the next volume resumes with the release of Permanent Waves) into both Canadian and general pop culture context, and presents the trio of quintessentially dependable, courteous Canucks as generators of incendiary, groundbreaking rock 'n' roll.

Fighting complacency, provoking thought, and often enraging critics, Rush has been at war with the music industry since 1974, when they were first dismissed as the Led Zeppelin of the north. Anthem, like each volume in this series, celebrates the perseverance of Geddy, Alex, and Neil: three men who maintained their values while operating from a Canadian base, throughout lean years, personal tragedies, and the band's eventual worldwide success.

    This is a great book for a great band!!! Interviews with the band members, their families, managers, producers, and other bands that shared a stage/tour with Rush. From the early days, to changing drummers, touring, writing new material, and trying to deal with the "perils of the road", this book takes Rush career, album by album, tour by tour. This book deals with all the albums of the 70's, "Rush" through :"Hemispheres", and is loaded with interviews with the people that made the music, and made it happen. It was great hearing how the albums, that became a huge part of my "life soundtrack", came to be. Very interesting stories. I can't wait to move on to the next installment....the '80s!!!!
