The brand new issue of Prog is on sale today. We celebrate 40 years of Rush’s phenomenal A Farewell To Kings album. As the band prepare a lavish celebratory box set we sit down with Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and producer Terry Brown to get the inside story on the making of the album, unearthing such startling facts such as the epic Xanadu was recorded in just one take, and that the movies Citizen Cain and Mr. Deeds Goes To Town were as influential to the creation of the album as Coleridge’s poetry!
