Author Bio

Skip Daly has been a self-proclaimed expert on the band Rush for over thirty years. He became a Rush fan in high school, and his first Rush concert was on May 5, 1990 (the Presto tour) at the Capital Centre in Largo, MD. He has since attended twenty-five additional Rush shows-at least one gig per subsequent tour. Skip lives in Gaithersburg, MD with his wife and four children.

Eric Hansen was first introduced to the band Rush after receiving a cassette tape of the albums Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures, and eventually became a true fanatic following the release of Rush's Hold Your Fire. In 1998, Eric started the popular Power Windows Rush fansite at 2112.net. He is also known for his contributions to the documentary Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage. Eric lives in Centennial, CO with his wife and two daughters.

Richard Bienstock is a senior editor with Guitar World magazine and executive editor of Guitar Aficionado magazine. He is also a musician and journalist whose writing has appeared in numerous U.S. and international publications. He lives in New York City.
