The Rush Thread

Post by KingLouieLouie76 » 09 Feb 2015, 06:31

It seems either you love or hate Rush....I've always been in the LOVE category and forever will be! For now 40 years the Classic Three have been together and effectively have always been able to reinvent themselves whenever necessary. Lee, Lifeson, and Peart are beyond proficient on their respective instruments and always soar to newer heights....

So, do you either love or hate Rush yourself?

I don't mind them, but I'm not a massive fan. 2112 is awesome.

I'm in between. I think they are very over rated but I don't mind them at all.

MASSIVE fan, they're one of my favorite bands of all time. Love love love 'em. Seen them 3 times (wish it was more), have EVERYTHING they've ever released...just legends. They are the rarest of rare things: a hard rock and prog band with a sense of humor.

Wow... two who are in the "in between" category? That is odd! Typically either you're like MrMagpie and myself (a MASSIVE fan) or you completely despise them BEYOND belief!

I hope to finally see them live (on 7/27 when they come here to Phoenix)......Three virtuosos who have kept their egos consistently in check is so odd! They all seem to always get along and have major creative differences (if any)....

True, their earlier albums captured them at their best, but they still sound impressive today..... To hear "Spirit of the Radio" live! Wow!

I'd love to go see them again but now that I live in the cultural wasteland that is central PA, the closest they're coming is Philly and I don't feel like schlepping there to see them. Back home they always used to play Boston and Manchester, those were great places to see shows. Maybe I'll change my mind, who knows? I haven't seen them since '04 but they are still fantastic live!
