Rush (band) starman logo

First Naked Ass to Appear on a Canadian Stamp…

First Canadian stamp to show a naked man’s ass

The Rush starman logo, featuring a naked man seen from the back, was featured on a Canada Post stamp in July 2013.

The “starman” logo first appeared on the back cover of the 1976 album 2112.
Hugh Syme, creator of graphics on many of Rush’s albums, told Jeffrey Morgan in 1983 the Starman “didn’t begin as an identity factor for the band, it just got adopted”

Rush has released 24 gold records and 14 platinum records (including 3 multi-platinum), placing them third behind The Beatles and The Rolling Stones for the most consecutive gold or platinum studio albums by a rock band.
