The Spirit of DVD,
This review is from: Rush - Beyond the Lighted Stage [DVD]  (DVD)
Having been a fan of the Canadian trio for over twenty years, I was always perplexed as to why there was very little available in terms of material documenting the band and their history. I have to admit that, outside of their music releases, I knew very little about them - other than they are a formidable live act.
As well as the short-biogs into the lives of Geddy, Neil and Alex and their humble beginnings in Willowdale, Ontario, this rockumentary answers all the important questions about why the third largest producer of platinum selling albums in the US (after the Stones and Led Zep),were - incredulously - deemed peripheral in the eyes of many so-called leading rock journalists.
Impressive testimonies and contributions from Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins), Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Tim Commerford (RATM) and Gene Simmons (Kiss) amongst others, detail how the music of Rush has become a gold standard for any rock musician, whether aspiring or world-famous.
In the words of Jack Black, it could simply be that "Rush have a deep reservoir of Rocket Sauce". As does this DVD.
