RIP Chris Cornell

This is shocking and terribly sad news…. Chris Cornell was not only an amazing musician but also a generous spirit that will be sorely missed. Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Audioslave, solo work. What a voice. What a body of work. Our thoughts are with his family, bandmates, friends and fans…. Truly heartbreaking. RIP Chris  



Geddy and Alex were so elated to induct one of their favourite bands, YES, to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  Followed by Geddy joining YES on stage for Roundabout, then Alex & Geddy joining Pearl Jam, members of Yes and Journey in the “Rockin’ The Free World” finale (see video below), and even hanging with Snoop backstage – check out some of the photos on the Rush Instagram and Geddy Lee Instagram
