When you play the new Rush DVD called R30, you'll see a bit of comedy before the band even plays their first note. The band usually have a filmed opening segment for their shows, and on their 30th anniversary tour last year, they used a bit done by actor Jerry Stiller. Guitarist Alex Lifeson told that it was great to lead off every night with one of the stars of Seinfeld: "We had a few people in mind, and Jerry was very interested in doing it, and he's a real pro. And it was just such a cool idea to have George Costanza's father introducing the band (chuckles), you know? So he was a really, really good sport, and I think he did a great job. (We) get a lot of laughs out of that."

As previously reported, Rush are looking to hit the studio early next year to record the follow-up to 2002's Vapor Trails. Rush, recently snubbed by the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, issued their DVD, R30: 30th Anniversary World Tour late last month.
