Rush is a Canadian rock band made up of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart. First formed in 1968, and comprising the aforementioned trio since 1974, the band's musical style has changed several times over the years; from a blues-inspired hard rock beginning, later moving into progressive rock, and including a period marked by heavy use of synthesizers. In the early 1990s, Rush returned to a guitar-driven hard rock sound, which continued for the rest of their career. The group has been awarded 24 gold, 14 platinum, and 3 multi-platinum albums. Rush has received nominations for seven Grammy Awards. The band has won several Juno Awards, won an International Achievement Award at the 2009 SOCAN Awards, was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013. Over their careers, the members of Rush have been acknowledged as some of the most proficient players on their respective instruments, with each band member winning numerous awards in magazine readers' polls.Website
