A couple members of Rush are popping up in some very different new videos these days.
Guitarist Alex Lifeson appears in a new 30-second spot for the Kidney Foundation of Canada, talking about his late father's struggle with kidney disease and urging viewers to pay attention to their kidney health.
Drummer Neil Peart, meanwhile, appears on two tracks from "Echoes on the Underground" by Vertical Horizon and can be seen in a new behind-the-scenes video from the recording sessions that's posted at Billboard.com.
This week Rush also released a remixed version of its 2002 album "Vapor Trails," and the Canadian trio will put out a live "Clockwork Angels Tour" DVD on November 18; filmed during its latest tour, it features 31 tracks as well as a 25-minute documentary and three of the video comedy bits used during the shows.
