MARTIN POPOFF TO RELEASE INSTALLMENT OF RUSH SERIES
Martin Popoff was on Talking Metal a while back to discuss his first book in his Rush series. At the time, he spoke to Mark Strigl about Anthem: Rush In The ’70s. Next up in this decade spanning series is Limelight: Rush In The ’80s. The book will capture the period in time between 1980’s Permanent Waves and 1989’s Presto.
Here is the information that was sent to us about the book:
In the follow-up to Anthem: Rush in the ‘70s, Martin Popoff brings together canon analysis, cultural context, and extensive firsthand interviews to celebrate Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart at the peak of their persuasive power. Rush was one of the most celebrated hard rock acts of the ‘80s, and the second book of Popoff’s staggeringly comprehensive three-part series takes readers from Permanent Waves to Presto, while bringing new insight to Moving Pictures, their crowning glory.
Limelight charts a dizzying period in the band’s career, built of explosive excitement but also exhaustion, a state that would lead, as the ‘90s dawned, to the band questioning everything they previously believed, and each member eyeing the future with trepidation and suspicion.
THIRD BOOK OF MARTIN POPOFF’S RUSH SERIES TO BE RELEASED IN SPRING 2021
April of 2021 will see the release of Driven: Rush In The ’90s. This volume will pick up where Limelight: Rush In The ’80s left off. The first two books in this series contain 375 pages worth of content. No doubt in my mind that if you’re a fan of the band, or of Popoff’s work, this will be a worth while purchase.
You can pre-order Limelight: Rush In The ’80s here.
