"Beyond The Lighted Stage," the documentary about the iconic Canadian progressive hard rock trio Rush was honored in the "Music DVD Of The Year" category at this year's Juno gala dinner and award ceremony held on Saturday, March 26, 2011 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

This marks the second consecutive win in this Juno category for filmmakers Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen of Banger Films, who received the same award last year for "Iron Maiden: Flight 666."

The Junos are the Canadian equivalent of the Grammy Awards and showcase Canadian bands and artists exclusively with the award ceremony being active since 1970. The full televised awards ceremony is set to take place on March 27, 2011 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario.

While I like Rush, Is this the right site for them? They're hardly metal or hard rock.

Not that it's such a big deal or anything ;) Just wondering.

If you go back Wolf and listen to the first couple of Rush records they sounded like Led Zeppelin. Hard Rock! They released material prior to a proper name for metal. I know they got a little proggy in mid to late 80s but they're probably still catorgorized as hard rock. Influential anyways!
