What A Rush... On the Cover Of The Rolling Stone

Attention all planets of the Solar Federation: Rush has finally made the cover of Rolling Stone — and it's happening well before the actual year 2112.

It's been more than four decades since the band formed its current lineup — and 34 years since its commercial breakthrough, 1981's Moving Pictures — but the Canadian trio is moving as close as ever to pop culture's center, with a hit documentary, Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage, induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and more.

Separately, more than a dozen staffers were laid off at Wenner Media this week in what’s being reported as a reallocation of resources toward digital media. The cuts were spread across the company’s three titles—Rolling Stone, Us Weekly and Men’s Journal. Despite a generally dwindling market for print,  Rolling Stone maintains an audited circulation of 1.4 million Us Weekly  - 1.9 million and Men’s Journal saw a 7.2-percent spike in readership in addition to a bump in price.
