RUSH is one of my favorite top 2 bands (IRON MAIDEN being 1st). I saw them in concert twice, in the 80's, when l used to burn the forest down! cool
Anyway, Neil Peart, being the BEST drummer on planet earth, left us too soon. That man could play some drums. He was lightning fast, but very clear with his playing.
I only own 2 of their cds, but IMHO, they are 2 of their best;
2112

He was a really good drummer, But not the best in my opinion.....

1. Vinnie Paul (Pantera)
2. Chris Adler (Lamb of God)
3. I'll put Neil Peart here, Even tough his overcomplicated style & tone machines aren't my cup of tea.

There have been several Rush threads here recently (most recently I recall was the passing of Neil).

I have listened to Rush since I was about 12 years old (Moving Pictures), and have loved them since.
I kind of quit listening in the mid 90's to mid 2000's, but started listening again around 2008 (Snakes and Arrows). Never got to any concerts after '89. Almost went to R40 (brother had an extra ticket he was going to give me, but his wife decided to go last moment).
I have recently started to get into their older stuff (Hemispheres has really been on my play list, especially Cygnus X-1, and have always loved La Villa Strangiato).
I have also started listening to more of the 90's stuff, there are a few there that are really good as well.
I can listen to Moving Pictures all day long (it is the CD in my truck right now, the only CD as a matter of fact), and even my kids know most of the songs (daughter actually likes Limelight).

I just got Spotify Premium and one playlist is all Rush. My favorite playlist.

The amount of musical talent these 3 guys had is amazing. Neil is a drum master and his lyrics are on several levels, Geddy plays bass, keyboards, foot pedals, and sings and writes the music with Alex, who is an under rated guitar player. Saw a video talking about how good Alex was at playing both rhythm and lead guitar at the same time, while allowing the bass and drums to take the forefront when needed.
None of them had an ego, and were just three guys that liked playing music and hanging around each other. They had the freedom to explore their musical quests, and had some hits and misses, but overall was a big hit.

I will say I am not one that say "they changed my life" or "their lyrics saved me". Most of the time I don't really pay attention to the words in songs or their meaning, (no matter what band), even on my favorite album (the above Moving Pictures) I have no idea what Geddy is saying in some parts of Tom Sawyer and Red Barchetta. Don't really care. I have been mumbling what I think he says for almost 40 years, no need to learn now.

Big Fan here.


And by the way, HUGE Maiden fan as well. Some of the smartest business people in the industry. Plus, they all have such interesting lives, outside of music.

One of the biggest concert regrets on my part. I believe it was 1985, and Maiden/Ozzy played the Mecca in Milwaukee. Parents quickly said '[censored] no'...

My all time favorite. I like a lot of rock music, but Rush is on an entirely separate plain of existence. When I bought the Hemisphere's cassette in 1980 in 8th grade, my music life was determined for me:) The earlier Rush albums also influenced my perception on society/politics. I am not a blind fan boi. I love this band more than most could ever attempt, but I did not like Snakes and Arrows or Clockwork Angels. Flame suit on!

Actually Rush had a string of consecutive awesome albums...Fly by Night, 2112, a Farewell to Kings, Hemispheres, Permanent Waves were all excellent albums...after that I didn't care for any of there later albums, though Tom Sawyer was a great song...

That may be your opinion, but I believe Peart was the best, as many other do as well...

At one time or another, l have owned ALL of their albums, tapes, cd's. WORKING MAN has got to be one of their most characteristic songs of all time.
RUSH' music has touched everyone in some kind of way or another. As a youth listening to their music it brought me somewhere in which l can't explain!

I'm listening to one of their compilation albums right now (Icon), but I can't say that I'm their avid fan. I like a few of their tracks, and that's about it.

Saw them twice, one was Roll the Bones tour...not sure about the other. Both were solid. One of my favorite CD's is A Show of Hands - excellent musical quality for a live recording.
