Wow..that is some very old and obscure Rush playing in that vid. Well done from a musical perspective.

Great vid my friend and great music. Big Rush fan myself.
 

 

 

Like the title says....this is purely for gray-haired Rush fans. Gamewise, it's just another typical battle in a Wildcat.

The results of a head to head encounter with another Wildcat pretty much decided on the title and the song for me.  Didn't have to think twice about it....

Nah, the "sad" Rush guys were the ones in high school who tried to impress girls by trying to sing like Geddy Lee.....

NEWSFLASH!!   Most girls don't like Rush.... and you CAN'T sing like Geddy Lee!!!  LOL

Many hours in '82 or so playing D&D in my buddies basement listening to Rush and Ozzy's Blizzard of Ozz..then came Signals...bleh.  First and only Rush concert I saw at Maple Leaf Gardens.

 

 

Forgot about Red Rider opening....Lunatic Fringe...appropriate here, no?

Damn Bubba, came close to reporting you for that heresy. 

 

 Rush and Neil Young have something in common and that is they are transformative.  If you cannot deal with that move to Idaho (or Alberta) and listen to Led Zeppelin for the rest of  your miserable life.

 

and yes I did just equate Rush with Neil Young. Deal with it!

I'll be listening to Caress of Steel while I work tomorrow, for sure! Very underrated album.

 

I've been a huge Rush head since High School. One of the great joys in my life was seeing them perform Moving Pictures in entirety and in order on the Time Machine Tour. 

 

It's a shame they just retired from touring.

I got to see them in Seattle in '76 during the 2112 tour, not long after I bought Caress of Steel.  I saw them again in San Diego during the Moving Pictures tour.

I got to see them one final time in Houston during the Vapor Trails tour, right after Neil Peart came back from his sabbatical, but before they ended the tour in Rio De Janeiro .

Yes, I own the Rush in Rio DVD, as well as every DVD that has anything to do with Rush. If you haven't yet seen "Beyond the Lighted Stage, then you really must....

 

Their album run from '75 through '78 (Fly By Night, Caress of Steel, 2112, Farewell To Kings, and Hemispheres), contains some of my all-time favorite tunes by Rush, and are by far, the pinnacle of their output.

With their increased radio play, Permanent Waves ('80) and Moving Pictures ('81) saw them get away from the concept album and start becoming more mainstream.

After that, the trendy "new wave" movement, (which is just a euphemism for turning rock into pop), saw a decline in the quality of their albums for the rest of the '80s, with just a few truly great songs spattered about, here and there.

I consider Test for Echo ('96) the best album they had made up to that time, since Moving Pictures.

 

Dammit Janet....you went and got me monologueing again.....time for bed.

Love it!! Excellent choice. My first rush album was caress of steel. Yup, gone are the days that a song tells a story and the band members are in perfect sync at every moment of the song.

never cared much for Journey, Rush, Yes, Emerson Lake and Palmer.

This geriatric requires: The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Merle Haggard, ZZ Top, Asleep at the Wheel

So, you throw a "chick band" (Guys played Journey to woo the girls) into the same progressive mold as Rush, Yes, and ELP??

Why am I not surprised......


T-Birds and ZZ buys you some redemption though....

You have to possess at least a little brainpower to appreciate progressive rock. Thanks for playing :-)

Journey was a tactic that worked great for me in my early to mid 20's.

Like the title says....this is purely for gray-haired Rush fans. Gamewise, it's just another typical battle in a Wildcat.

The results of a head to head encounter with another Wildcat pretty much decided on the title and the song for me.  Didn't have to think twice about it....

 

 

 

 


 

Yep, one of my all time favorite bands, and one of the best 3 man bands ever!

And, I'm only 10 minutes away from Lakeside Park!!
