Jon Collins' 2005 biography on Rush titled "Chemistry" will be made available in paperback in North America on Monday, November 1. The book, which was released in the United Kingdom earlier this month, has been re-proofed to correct all of the typos, errors and inaccuracies that appeared in the original hard-cover version.
Acclaimed Marillion biographer Jon Collins draws on hundreds of hours of new interviews to tell the full in-depth story of the enduring Canadian trio who refused to compromise their music and avoided the typical rock and roll lifestyle. From early days in Canada to platinum albums, stadium shows, and the world’s stage, taking in tragedy, triumphs, and a wealth of great music, this is the meticulous and definitive study of one of rock’s great enigmas. From early triumphs such as the classic concept album 2112, on to their first hit single “Spirit of Radio” and beyond to Moving Pictures, “Tom Sawyer,” and more pop-oriented 1990s material, Rush have continued to make groundbreaking and original music that has sold in the millions.
