rush400pix Rush have finally made the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

For the in-depth, career-spanning cover story, senior writer Brian Hiatt ­followed the band to early tour rehearsals in Los Angeles and soundchecks in Tulsa, Oklahoma, interviewing Neil Peart, Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson about their lives and careers, from their childhoods to their Eighties evolution to the recording of 2012’s Clockwork Angels. Throughout the story, one question looms: Can their current run of shows, which began May 8th in Tulsa, really be their “last major tour of this magnitude,” as they’ve called it? The band members themselves don’t seem altogether sure.

“It’s most likely our last tour,” says Lee. “I couldn’t put it any more accurately. I can’t say for sure. But it doesn’t mean we don’t want to work together still, it doesn’t mean we won’t do another creative project and I’ve got ideas for shows we could do that don’t involve a tour.”

    I’m worried. Does anyone know of Jann Wenner’s wherabouts? I can’t imagine Rush or KISS (last year) making it to the cover while Mr. Wenner is at the helm of Rolling Stone. He just wouldn’t allow that.

    Perhaps Rolling Stone stylizing one of the Boston Bombers and swallowing whole a liar’s say-so about a gang rape has humbled that magazine? Perhaps they have come to see that their notion of “cool” is politically correct and snobbish? Perhaps they have come to see that musicianship and integrity actually matter?

    Perhaps, but I doubt it.

    Wow! Never realized that RUSH had yet to be on the cover of RS. USed to love this magazine in the 70’s, 80’s & 90’s. Boy, they really do have their heads up ye’ ole as of late. She RUSH next month.

    A year ago I mysteriously received a copy of Rolling Stone in my mailbox. Since I knew I didn’t subscribe to this left-wing rag s–t of a magazine, I promptly called customer service to ask why I was sent a copy of their garbage. Turns out I was given a free one-year subscription for something I purchased at Best Buy. I promptly cancelled the subscription. Rolling Stone couldn’t pay me to read their junk.

    But on the bright side, I’ll be seeing Rush in Phoenix July 27!

      Rolling Stone is as worthless as any right wing media source. Take a chill pill and enjoy the music.

      I am a left wing tree hugger and I hate Rolling Stone as well.

    I just saw them recently and they’re as good live now as they’ve ever been. As for being on the cover of Rolling Stone, I’m happy for them in the fact that some people who read and follow that magazine’s tastes might be learning something about a band all of us lifelong die-hard fans already know about. Rush may even attract some new fans. The last issue of Rolling Stone I ever purchased was back in the early 90’s that had James Hetfield on the cover with his guitar. That magazine and the people who run it have looked down on hard rock and heavy metal throughout Rolling Stone’s history. The music and it’s fans get looked at like a bunch of meatheads that have no sophistication whatever. But enough about Rolling Stone, ALL HAIL THE MIGHTY RUSH!
