Geddy Lee said that over the course of the band’s career he’s never been afraid of making a mistake in public: “Y’know, you look back, and sometimes you go, ‘What was I thinking?’ But that’s part-and-parcel of, kind of, being slightly experimental. That means you’re gonna make mistakes, and you’re gonna, you’re gonna be off the mark sometimes. But I think it’s important for all artists not to be afraid to make mistakes in public.”

Out now is R40, a video box set on six Blu-ray discs or 10 DVD’s. The collection includes live footage from all four decades of Rush’s career, including over two hours of unreleased material, a rare performance of “2112” in its entirety, three unreleased tracks from 1974, and more.
