Rush scored wins in three categories at the 2014 Ultimate Classic Rock Awards 2014 nominees, edging out Paul McCartney and Fleetwood Mac, who earned two each, for most wins.

According to results posted Feb. 11 at UltimateClassicRock.com, the legendary Canuck rockers won awards for Song of the Year (‘The Garden’), Tour of the Year (Clockwork Angels Tour) and Live Album (‘Clockwork Angels Tour’).

The 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees narrowly beat out Paul McCartney in all three win categories, topping Sir Paul's 'Queenie Eye' by 37.4 percent to 36.8 percent for Song of the Year, while edging out Macca nearly 36 percent to 28 percent for Tour of the Year, and besting the former Beatle's 'On Air: Live at the BBC Vol. 2' 44 percent to 37 percent for Live Album.

Though the band is taking a breather after its extensive Clockwork Angels World Tour, fans can look forward to the release of a new comic book series based on the legendary their critically acclaimed concept album "Clockwork Angels," which will hit shelves in March, as well as an upcoming special 40th anniversary reissue of their 1974 self-titled debut album sometime in 2014.
