Rush is a Canadian progressive rock band originally formed in August 1968, in the Willowdale neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario, currently composed of bassist, keyboardist, and lead vocalist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson, and drummer and lyricist Neil Peart. The band and its membership went through a number of line-up changes between 1968 and 1974, achieving their definitive form when Neil Peart replaced original drummer, John Rutsey, in July 1974.

The band released its eponymous debut album in March 1974. Since then, they have achieved 24 gold records and 14 platinum (3 multi-platinum) records, placing them third behind the Beatles and Rolling Stones for the most gold and platinum albums by a band in music history.[1] According to the RIAA, Rush's sales statistics also place them third behind The Beatles and The Rolling Stones for the most consecutive gold or platinum albums by a rock band. Rush also ranks 79th in U.S. album sales with 25 million units.[2] Although total worldwide album sales are not calculated by any single entity, as of 2004 several industry sources estimated Rush's total worldwide album sales at over 40 million units.[3][4][5][6]
