5 stars Rush - Beyond the Lighted Stage is the documentary of the band, spanning their entire career, from how the band got started to where they are now. This is an absolute classic for a Diehard Rush Fan. Rush is my favorite band of all time! I've been a Rush fan since I was 8 years old. I'm 17, about to be 18 in a week from now, so that'll make it a 10 year anniversary in which I've been with Rush no matter what they put out. Their 3rd studio album, Caress Of Steel, was considered a disappointment by the record company, which led to a series of concerts, named "Down The Tubes Tour". It was a very depressing time for the band, for the fans too. It was hard to find road dates and they were performing in smaller areas. People thought this would be the end of Rush, but in reality, you know it's just the beginning, as they flipped the script on their follow up, 2112, which sold 3x platinum, 3 million copies sold. In 1996, Rush released Test For Echo. The band underwent a very sad tragedy. Neil Peart's daughters, they passed away. The band took a 6 year break to recover from these very sad tragedies. Test For Echo, I thought this would literally be the end of Rush. they went through very hard times, tragedies. But in 2002, Rush returns, with their follow up, Vapor Trails. To be honest, I thought on Test For Echo, I found out that Neil's daughters passed away. And that, I thought that would be the end. It obviously wasn't, as they released their follow up, Vapor Trails. I'll say this: Rush has went through some very hard times. What did they do? they didn't give up and they stole wrote music no matter what. In fact, Rush is an inspiration. You see why Rush is my favorite band of all time. and as a matter of fact, they are still at it, they made some new ones such as Snakes and Arrows and upcoming album, Clockwork Angels, which is to be released May 29, 2012. I'm ready, their upcoming album, Clockwork Angels, is a highly anticipated release. It's been 5 years without a Rush studio album, because of the 2 legs of the Time Machine Tour, one during the Summer of 2010, and during the start of Spring 2011. But now it's 2012 and it's counting down. I'm ready to hear the album. I've only heard two songs from the album, Caravan and BU2B (Brought Up To Believe), as they were played during the Time Machine Tour, as they played Moving Pictures in its entirity for the first time. Rush - Beyond The Lighted Stage is a classic for a Diehard Rush Fan. Rush seriously deserves the induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. they were qualified for so many years, but they haven't inducted them. I consider it the Rock and Roll Hall of Shame, there's no good bands in the Hall of Fame. bands that are in: Metallica, Van Halen, Run DMC and a lot others. Bands that aren't in it: Rush, Def Leppard, Dream Theater, Anthrax, Iron Maiden and a lot other awesome bands. C'mon, These awesome bands that I just stated really deserve the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! not inducting those bands is disrespect and I won't put up with that. ever. I will use force to make the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induct them.
