    I like this Alex Lifeson and not the one that needs 21 guitars to do an album, first album still my favorite, RIP John Rutsey,

    glad to hear that, they played a lot of high schools and hockey arena's up here in canada, I got to a show in Port Huron, Michigan during the 2112 tour back in the 1970's,

    I saw them on their Signals tour a long time ago . . . uh, high school. Saw them again for another tour, but can't remember the album :) Fun shows.

    I'm not a fan of the first Rush album save for a couple of songs, but I really enjoyed this.

    They sound great live, John Rutsey was a great drummer too.

    I just think it's cool that a HS had a hard rock band Concert ( never mind that it was the ' great-to-be...' Rush!) for their kids in the Auditorium!

    These guys really believed in each other and their music.
