Dedicated to
Neil Peart (1952-2020)
Forever in our hearts

Wouldn’t it be great if there was an animated or sci-fi movie based on the Rush universe, complete with a Rush soundtrack?
There could be. I’ve written a script.

Logline for “Tom Sawyer the RUSH Musical”:
In the year 2112,
Tom Sawyer discovers a guitar, forbidden by The Priests of Syrinx, rulers of the planet Megadon.
Embracing The Spirit of Radio,
Tom wants to express his Freewill through music.
Forced to Fly By Night,
avoiding the Limelight,
and guided by a philosopher,
he uncovers a secret Closer to the Heart that threatens the governing technocracy.
