The documentary Rush | Time Stand Still is coming to theatres in US & Canada on November 3. The DVD/BluRay will be released November 18.
In a second Rolling Stone exclusive clip released this morning, Geddy Lee & Alex Lifeson share stories from their mid-Seventies tour with Kiss in the documentary Rush | Time Stand Still. Longtime lighting director Howard Ungerleider recalls that while on the road, Lifeson used to put a paper bag on his head and put his hands through his pants to entertain his bandmates and Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley. He called his character “The Bag.”
“Bring the Bag over here,” Lifeson says in a clip, doing an impression of Frehley in a high-pitched voice. “Howie, where’s the Bag?” Lee echoes, referring to the band’s lighting director. They would fool around, much to the consternation of Kiss’ Gene Simmons. “Gene was very, very upset with the Bag,” Lifeson recalls, “and that made Ace even happier.”
This special theatre event of RUSH| Time Stand Still, narrated by Paul Rudd, is a night for our passionate and loyal fans to watch together and provides an intimate look into the band’s sold-out “R40” tour and the unique relationship we have with you all.
In addition to the documentary, fans will also get first viewing exclusive extras including Rush | A Salute to Kings – a 20-minute in-depth discussion with Gene Simmons (KISS), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Ann & Nancy Wilson (Heart), Scott Gorham (Thin Lizzy), and the band’s producer Nick Raskulinecz as they share their unique stories about Rush over the last 40 years.
