RUSH Frontman Presented With Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Commemorative Medal

Bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee of Canadian rock legends RUSH was one of more than 600 distinguished Ontario residents who were presented with Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medals at a ceremony on June 18 at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto,
Ontario, Canada. The special medal was created to mark the 60th
anniversary of the Queen's accession to the throne.

commemorative medals are being presented to distinguished Ontario
residents who have already been invested with the Order Of Canada and
Order Of Ontario.

RUSH's 20th studio album, "Clockwork Angels", debuted at No. 2 on last week's Billboard album chart, selling 103,000 copies in its first week of release. The disc marks RUSH's highest chart debut since 1993's "Counterparts", which also entered at No. 2. The Canadian trio has yet to land at No. 1 despite having 28 releases make the Billboard chart in the past four
decades. "Clockwork Angels" also beat out the band's previous effort, 2007's "Snakes & Arrows", which sold 93,000 copies to debut at No. 3.
