One of my favourite songs of 1980 (though this video is from much later obviously)

So I can't listen to the audio - who and what is it?

It's the Horror of Rush! Their song Spirit of Radio. Geddy Lee's the little gnome-like guy playing bass. Neal Peart is (I think) the best drummer I've ever heard. Listen when you get home.

The horror! Okay. I'll check it out later.

I swear, isn't YouTube great? It's got so much...stuff.

Two of the best concerts I ever saw were for the Presto tour and Roll the Bones. Sadly the albums themselves were not my favourites, but the other material was GREAT.

I still remember the hair standing up on the back of my neck at Maple Leaf Gardens during "The Manhattan Project". (or maybe that was just the residual weed smoke)

I guess I have a fairly narrow fandom of RUSH that goes from the mid-70s to the mid-80s - probably from 2112 to Signals. There were some singles I liked after those (Roll the Bones - despite the hilariously awful rap) - but to me Rush will always be a Farewell to Kings and Moving Pictures and the last single I really loved was Subdivisions. I saw them on the Roll the Bones tour too - in Montreal! We probably had this conversation already.

True story:
The first time I ever smoked weed when I was about 19 and it was right before a Rush concert. I slept through the entire show and only woke up for about 2 minutes. I woke up at the end, walked back to my friend's house and was never so thirsty in my life.

So I can't decide if I can honestly say I saw Rush in concert or not.

Heh. Swap in "Oingo Boingo" for Rush and I could tell the same story.

Some might say you haven't seen a Rush concert unless you've smoked so much weed you sleep through all but two minutes of the show!

I love Rush. Roll The Bones is the one I listen to most. Not necessarily because it's the best, it just has a lot of deep teenage-early-twenties angst associated with it. Moving Pictures is one of my all time favorite albums.

Moving Pictures is a great album - Limelight is an awesome song with a great Alex Lifeson solo!

I read all those comments before, and I agree that music tastes are strangely personal.. and I'd like to be put in the "Loves Rush" column. :)

I always knew I liked you for good reasons!
