That Rush documentary, Beyond the Lighted Stage, that has been making the rounds on cable had me thinking: Do you have to like a band to enjoy a documentary? And of course the answer is no. Remember that Metallica doc about how they all hated each other? I don't care for Metallica, but it was fascinating.
I like Rush better than Metallica, but I'm still not a huge fan. Have no idea what their recent stuff even sounds like. But it's a damn good bio, and I sat through the whole thing in one sitting, which definitely means something.

BTW- As for the inevitable, "Do they belong in the Rock Hall?" question, the answer is simple: Not until Yes get in first.
