Rush has sold in excess of 40 million records worldwide, ranking third behind the Beatles and the Rolling Stones for most gold and platinum records sold by a rock band. Since releasing its debut album in 1974, the Toronto group has become one of Canada’s most successful and influential rock bands
When I was growing up, my favourite rock band was Rush. I had all their albums, posters on my walls... they were the first band that I was truly obsessed with. But I don't really follow them much any more. Haven't for a long time.
The other bands represented in the series this year are The Tragically Hip, The Guess Who and Beau Dommage. All received similar booklet, FDC and postcard issues. But I'm not the least bit interested in any of them. The only reason I bothered with the souvenir sheet was because of the Rush stamp.
