Rush to star Hollywood’s Walk of Fame


By Michael Sullivan 

Rock trio Rush is being honored on June 25 with the 2,412th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Rush will be joining the small handful of bands the Walk has honored in the past, including The Beatles, Queen and homegrown rockers the Doors.

The honor comes right on the heels of the June 10 release of “Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage,” a documentary chronicling the band’s 40-plus-year career; and in anticipation of their 20th studio album “Clockwork Angels,” due early next year.

The band, composed of bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson and Drummer Neal Peart, is also prepping their North American “Time Machine” tour, which kicks off June 29 at the Hard Rock Casino in Albuquerque, N.M. Two singles off the new album, “Caravan” and “BU2B,” are already available on their website for digital download.

The Hollywood star will be located on Hollywood Blvd. in front of the Musician’s Institute.
