Rush Book Sitcom Appearance, Receive Lullaby Album Treatment
The guys in Rush already had big plans for 2013, what with that whole Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction thing coming up in April and all — but it’s far from the only place that fans can look for the members of the band this year.
For starters, Rush’s music is set to receive the lullaby treatment later this month, when ‘Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Rush’ is scheduled to arrive in stores. As you may already be aware, Rockabye Baby has made something of a cottage industry out of releasing bedtime-worthy versions of rock bands’ greatest hits. Rush’s disc includes a dozen of the band’s best-known tracks, including ‘Fly By Night,’ ‘The Spirit of Radio,’ ‘Tom Sawyer,’ and ‘Subdivisions’; you can view the complete track list — and hear snippets of each song — at the label’s site.
Next month, you’ll be able to see Rush as part of the CBS comedy lineup, when the members of the band join a cavalcade of Canadian guest stars on the Feb. 4 episode of ‘How I Met Your Mother.’ As Bravewords reports, they’ll appear alongside ‘Growing Pains’ star Alan Thicke, longtime Letterman sidekick Paul Shaffer, ‘Beverly Hills 90210′ star Jason Priestley, ‘Jeopardy’ host Alex Trebek, singer k.d. lang, former Barenaked Ladies frontman Steven Page, and retired hockey star Luc Robitaille in the show.
