Rush will be bringing their documentary, Time Stand Still, to movie screens, for one night only, on November 3rd.
This special event, which is scheduled before the DVD release on November 18th, features additional material that won’t appear elsewhere.
The film was shot during the band’s R40 tour last year – widely thought to have been the last large-scale road trip of their career.
The two-hour presentation includes 20-minute short A Salute To Kings, in which Gene Simmons of KISS, Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, Scott Gorham of Thin Lizzy and Rush producer Nick Raskulinecz discuss their experiences of the Canadian trio.
Producers Fathom Events state, “The popularity of a rock band can often be built on the road. That is how Rush did it over their 40-year history. But what happens if this unique relationship may be severed?
Exclusive access to the band and crew throughout the tour provide the raw and vivid emotional undertones. At the core of the event are Rush’s devoted fans. Their undying devotion and their quirky sense of ownership are on full display as the R40 tour comes to a crescendo in Los Angeles.
Candid interviews with Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart bring Time Stand Still to an emotional conclusion for a band who built their career the old-fashioned way –one show at a time.”
Rush’s future remains in doubt, with drummer Peart believed to have retired, at least from touring. Guitarist Lifeson said last month, “I feel very confident about a lot of things, and music is definitely one of them. I’m sure we’ll do something in the future. We can’t just stop playing and writing music together.”
Tickets go on sale on October 7th. For more information, please visit fathomevents.com. Watch a clip from the documentary, posted below.
Jason Becker is a guitarist/composer who has had ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) for over 27 years. He started making albums when he was 17 years old; Cacophony, his band with Marty Friedman (Megadeth), and his solo albums have been extremely influential in the guitar, metal and rock music world. He joined David Lee Roth’s band when he was 20 and they put out A Little Ain’t Enough, Dave’s fourth solo album, which went Gold.
Currently, Becker has written a full album of amazing music which will be performed and recorded by many of his peers. This album will comprise a few compositions that have been waiting for this moment to be recorded, with many new pieces recently written. In order to accomplish this goal, Becker needs your support, please be a part of making this album a real possibility. Please visit indiegogo.com/projects/jason-becker to donate to this campaign.
Becker is giving out some perks from T-shirts, signed CD’s, a signed guitar from Joe Bonamassa, to your name credited on the album.
Becker is considered a virtuoso guitarist and one of the top players of his time. He studied the works of violinist Niccolò Paganini and rearranged Paganini’s 5th Caprice, which Becker then performed this masterpiece during an instructional guitar video. Becker’s compositions often include high speed scalar and arpeggio passages—trademarks of his “shred” style of guitar playing.
This project is exactly the kind of record that the Jason Becker fans have been waiting for. Now YOU can be a part of his new project with just one click!

Last year marked the 25th anniversary of Extreme’s classic multi-Platinum, Grammy® nominated, Pornograffitti, the definitive album of the band’s career. To mark the anniversary, Pornograffitti Live 25/Metal Meltdown will be released October 14th.
The band has released, Money (In God We Trust), performance clip from the release. Watch it below.
“It was a great thrill to perform Pornograffitti in its entirety,” says singer Gary Cherone. “Some of these songs were never played live before so we had to go back and relearn them for the tour. The album was a watershed moment in the bands career…it’s when we came in to our own and it will always be special.”
As guitar virtuoso Nuno Bettencourt continues, “The band always prided itself on its live performance. Over the years, some of these songs have evolved where the band actually plays them better now than when we had recorded them. Hope you enjoy it.”
