Kelly Jay in an outtake from the cover of Moving Pictures shoot

In 2021 Rush marked the release of the 40th anniversary edition of their classic Moving Pictures album by lifting the lid on Deborah Samuel’s cover shoot. 

One of the outtakes released by the band revealed – for the first time – the face of the man carrying Rush’s iconic Starman logo portrait up the steps of the Ontario Legislature in Queen’s Park, Toronto. That man was Crowbar frontman Kelly Jay, who had died in 2019.  

“You’re the first person to want to speak with me,” Kelly told us before he passed away. “Up until now nobody knew that I was on that sleeve.”


“I knew Geddy and the boys; we travelled in the same circles. We were [former Canadian PM] Pierre Trudeau’s favourite band and we had a large following, but not as big as Rush.
