    Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage

    Anybody catch this on VH1? One of the best rock and roll documentaries I've ever seen.

    No, but I'll keep an eye out for it. VH1 does a great job with these documentaries.

    It was well done and very insightful.

    Yes, it aired a few months ago; there was a short thread about it here. Very informative and well produced. I'd probably watch it again just for the live clips.

    Excellent doc...and one of the very few I've seen that speaks to the peculiarity of a band like Rush - one that can inspire such a devoted fervor and cultish appeal yet break through to the masses in a more profound way than anyone ever gave them credit for.  Their longevity speaks for itself.  I still remember a blurb of an interview with Robert Plant in the early 70's who was quite aware and appreciative of Rush.  High praise, indeed.

    Funny, but I know some people who know a lot about popular music and yet can't stand Rush.  But the Rush fans I do know are REALLY fans who would follow them to their grave (probably with one of Neil's drum sticks they snagged during the Counterparts Tour).

    My takeaway from all this is that "progressive" rock groups separate the truly devoted fan from the casual fans.  Whether we're talking about ELP, Queen, Yes, Rush, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, etc...there seems to be very little middle ground.

    This is an informed group...anyone else have anything to add...?

    Rush has some awesome live DVD's out too. 

    Never seem them live, but that changes in about 2 weeks (about 20 yrs too late).  Cant wait

    Palladia is showing this uninterrupted - or has - over the last few weeks.  It is a superb documentary.  I was particularly impressed with the story of how Neil (and Geddy and Alex, too) got through the agony of losing his wife and daughter. Highly recommended.  It is also available on DVD and Blu-ray.  Those versions have more content than was shown on Palladia.

    Palladia deserves a pat on the back for being a music channel that plays nothing but, you know, music.

    Yes, very much unlike another Music TeleVision channel I could mention. I caught a Foo Fighters concert on their a couple nights ago that was neat.

    As for Rush, they were huge during my high school years but I loathed them. Mainly because of Geddy Lee's voice, which I couldn't stand. It wasn't until about 10 years ago I realized how wrong I was. It's amazing what fantastic musicians those three are.

    I have to admit I didn't particularly enjoy their synthesizer era in the mid-80s. But you have to admire a band that takes on challenges. I've worn out Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures since buying them. I also like Snakes and Arrows, their most recent disc.

    Bumping -- in light of the recent RUSH rampage in other threads.

    nice digging...i thought the documentary was extremely well done. another really good one was Iron Maiden: Flight 666 or something similar to that title. they fly their own plane but the concerts  are still killer.
