The appeal of Rush stretches around the globe. RUSHfest, an annual festival in Scotland dedicated to all things Rush, has announced the imminent release of a charity Rush record with the artwork designed by Hugh Syme, the guy behind so many Rush albums.
Tribute: Songs for Neil Vol. 1 is set for release on September 12, which, as all Rush fans know, is Neil’s birthday. All profits from the album will be sent to Cancer Support Scotland and the the US-based Glioblastoma Foundation Neil Peart Research Award.
The record will feature twelve covers from a variety of performers from around the world. Here’s an example from Canadian Jacob Moon.
