The Original Rush Lineup


Here they were called "Hadrian" (Even though the original name WAS Rush!). Just after Alex Zivojinovich became Alex Lifeson and Gary Lee Weinrib became Geddy Lee.

"In 1973, Rush decided to release their first single before they released an album. On side A, there was a song called "Not Fade Away." Not Fade Away was a cover of a Buddy Holly song. On side B, there was a Lee/Rutsey song called "You Can't Fight It." This single wasn't released world wide. Not a single record company in Canada would produce Rush's music. So Rush made their own record company which was called Moon Records. The single was only released in Toronto and other parts of Canada for $0.69. It was often given away for free. It is very rare, which makes this single worth a fortune today."

Alex, John, and Geddy
