RUSH: A Moving Picture in the Works
Neil Peart reveals that a film is being made about Geddy Lee.
Rush drummer Neil Peart spent August at his vacation home in Quebec’s Laurentian Mountains. While there, he was interviewed for a documentary on his bandmate, Geddy Lee, which is being put together by Banger Films, the folks behind the Rush documentary, Beyond the Lighted Stage. No other details are available at the moment, but Peart thought it would be a good idea to film his interview for it at Le Studio, which is near his house, and is where Rush recorded numerous albums, including Moving Pictures and Permanent Waves.
Geddy and Alex Lifeson are once again auctioning off Rush memorabilia on eBay as part of their Grapes Under Pressure 3 initiative in support of Grapes for Humanity, an organization that helps to raise funds to benefit humanitarian causes around the world with the assistance of the international wine community. Among the items up for bid are a signed Moving Pictures Live test pressing and an Ovation acoustic guitar used at Geddy’s home studio. The auction runs through Monday.
