Rush Take a Tour of Rolling Stone's Headquarters
Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee revisit memories of John Lennon, Led Zeppelin and more

Rush's army of fans will probably never forgive Rolling Stone for neglecting to ever put them on the cover, but the members of the band truly couldn't care less. Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson stopped the magazine's headquarters a few weeks ago and we gave them the grand tour, including a long hallway that displays every cover from the magazine's 46-year history.

Geddy Lee on Rush's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction: 'We'll Show Up Smiling'

The journey through our past caused the future Rock and Roll Hall of Famers to reflect on their own history, including their first meeting with Neil Peart, waiting in line to see Led Zeppelin and working on Moving Pictures when word came down that John Lennon had been murdered. A Rodney Dangerfield cover from 1980 also caught Geddy's eye. "I think this is the most appropriate cover to remind me of Moving Pictures," he says. "I identify with Rodney." Much like the comedian, they didn't get nearly enough respect at the time.
