When talking about "Moving Pictures", superlatives are quickly at hand: It is Rush's best-selling album. The album that made sure that even casual listeners couldn't help but devote themselves to this phenomenon - in front of the home stereo as well as in the packed arenas. The album that contains the band's most famous song and the only album that the Canadian trio performed live in its entirety. But what's behind the 40 minutes that saw the light of record shelves on February 12, 1981? We take a look at the genesis of this milestone, present exclusive interviews with producer Terry Brown and artworker Hugh Syme, and have also unearthed a contemporary interview with Geddy Lee.
Neil Peart is dead. The drummer and lyricist of Rush died on January 7th in Santa Monica, California at the age of 67 from a brain tumor. The multi-award-winning drummer and book author had already left the band in 2015 for health reasons. Rush had thereupon declared the end of their career. Throughout his life Peart was a researcher, a seeker. Whether it was playing drums, reading literature or acquiring knowledge in general: The unpretentiously shy, but at the same time warm-hearted and extremely eloquent Canadian was constantly on the lookout for new subjects, into which he knew how to plunge with almost childish naivety, only to emerge from this process as a grown-up personality.

Time is on our side: 50 years of Stones in rapid succession
"For most people, the sun, the moon, the stars - and the Rolling Stones - have always existed!" Keith Richards once commented on the longevity of his band. The Rolling Stones haven't been around as long as the sun - but long enough to look back on 50 years of Sex, Drugs & Rock'n'Roll. We do this by looking through the past half century for the most relevant events in the band's history - and summarizing the 50 most important Stones numbers from an eclipsed point of view.

The cult lives!
Shelter From The Storm
Bob Dylan is entering the eighth decade of his life. With the experiences and impressions of the 70 years that lie behind him since May 25th, one could well equip ten lives, and none of them would be uneventful. We recall stations in the life and career of the ingenious and enigmatic US artist and decorate the whole thing with a "special shopping list".

The eclipsed annual review
Chronicler of the American (Alpine) Dream
In 1988 the band Prefab Sprout made it clear in their song "Cars And Girls" that life is about more than cars and girls - an obvious side blow to Bruce Springsteen and his supposedly limited view of the world. At the end of September the new Boss album "Magic" will be released. A welcome opportunity to look back on Springsteen's career and see what the man from New Jersey is really interested in.
