News: Possible Rush Documentary in the works

Apparently, Rush's induction into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame has finally spurred on the creation of a documentary about the band. Apparently Geddy Lee is having a hard time reliving the past during the making of the film:

"To be involved in the documentary has been hard from that point of view, because they're making so much of things we've done in the past, and asking questions about details 25, 30 years ago — a lot of them have just gone out of my head," Lee told Walrus magazine.

"It's a bit uncomfortable dwelling so much on what has happened. I'm more comfortable looking forward and not being constantly aware of how long i've been in the same band.

"The very business of looking back — through archival footage and photographs — can feel self-indulgent. You want to spend your time thinking about things other than your own face."

Personally speaking, I think it's about time for one of Canada's most important bands to finally get a proper retrospective documentary made. I'll be looking out for future news on this and I'll post whatever I find right here.

"But that will change with Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen's aptly titled Rush: The Documentary, which could be released as early as May 18, according to Rush fansite Power Windows. No official announcement's been made yet."
