Ep. 47: Howard Ungerleider
Jul 20th, 2020 by Something for Nothing
The week, we talk with the man who lit Rush's lighted stage for decades, Howard Ungerleider. Howard hopped on the Rush train in 1974, when he accepted the role as tour manager to help keep life on the road running smoothly. The hats began to pile on--tour manager, lighting director, accountant--until he decided to wear just one: lighting director. Anyone who has ever witnessed a live Rush show has seen and appreciated Howard's work. We break down some of his favorite lighting tricks and find out which songs he's always wanted to see in the setlist. Join us!
