Canadian singer and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee from the band RUSH, Geddy Lee had a milestone birthday yesterday. To celebrate, watch our rockous short documentary online for free!
Geddy Lee talks about an important time in Toronto’s music history at Massey Hall. Directed by Bruce McDonald, this short was part of our 2009 multi-platform series City Sonic.
In June 1976, Rush ended their 2112 tour with three sold-out concerts at Massey Hall, an historic event at an historic venue. These shows were recorded for the double-live album “All the World is a Stage” an album that broke the band in the U.S., becoming their first Top 40 Billboard hit and paving the way for a string of famous Rush live albums. It was a first for Rush, but not the first time singer/bassist Geddy Lee felt magic on the stage at Massey. Geddy takes us on a tour inside the legendary concert hall and back to the 1970s to reminisce on how getting to watch Cream and Genesis rock Massey Hall as a star-struck teen set the stage for him to make rock music history there himself.
