MEGADON MEETS HOLLYWOOD AT RUSH BACKSTAGE CLUB


The Rush Backstage Club has just released a limited edition, hand numbered, Starman Sculpture.  This sculpture is a special item that commemorates the induction of Rush into The Hollywood Walk Of Fame.  All proceeds from the sale of this item go to the Hollywood Historic Trust, which preserves the integrity of the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. For complete details, check it out at www.rushbackstage.com


 

  
   

Rush was inducted into the Hollywood Walk Of Fame in 2009, being recognized for their contributions to the entertainment industry! This limited edition starman sculpture has been custom painted with Walk Of Fame graphics to commemorate and celebrate this event.


The colors used for sculpture are the same as the rose granite star that will be embedded into Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles, California. The iconic starman figure is painted in silver, and stands against the star backdrop which is painted with the signatures of Geddy, Alex, and Neil. The base upon which the starman stands, is painted with a gold Rush logo and the words, "Hollywood Walk Of Fame 2009". As this is a limited edition collectible item, the underside of the base is hand-numbered (1/500) and shows the official copyright information for this statue. These statues are made from heavyweight polyresin, and are packaged in a custom box, complete with a description of the Walk Of Fame induction. The starman stands 7" tall, and the star is approximately 9" tall.


The Rush starman is the quintessential logo of the band. The symbolism of the logo is best described by Neil Peart, and Hugh Syme, who created this original artwork.

 

  
  


"All it means is the abstract man against the masses. The red star symbolizes any collectivist mentality."
- Neil Peart, Creem, 1982

"The man is the hero of the story. That he is nude is just a classic tradition ... the pureness of his person and creativity without the trappings of other elements such as clothing. The red star is the evil red star of the Federation, which was one of Neil's symbols. We basically based that cover around the red star and that hero."
- Hugh Syme, Creem, 1983
