Flashback highlights one of the greatest, if not the greatest, progressive rock bands of all time. Rush formed in Toronto, Canada back in 1968 and are still going strong today. Although the band got it’s official start back in ’68 it recognizes 1974 it’s official starting point as that was the year that drummer extraordinaire Neil Peart joined the band…just (2) weeks before their first tour of America. Since their inception, Rush has always been on the cutting edge of progressive rock invoking an eclectic mix of genres, instrumentation and influences in their compositions creating a sound that is near impossible to duplicate or copy. Neil along with Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson are true originals through and through.
‘Working Man’ was released as part of Rush’s self-titled debut album back in ’74 and remains a classic today. For all the doubters out there who might think that rockin’ for 30+ years has taken it’s toll on this band…think again. The video above shot just a couple of years ago is proof positive that these cats have not lost a step.
