    LOL. Awesome. I really can't stand their music, but I loved their documentary.

    I was a fan of Rush early in high school, but have not had the urge to listen to them since.
    I can appreciate their musicianship. But there is no "groove"...

    And I will add, though I am sure as Canadiens they are all super nice guys, the Geddy Lee segment was by far the most boring of Dan Rather's "Big Interview" series. The guy literally had nothing to say. He mostly talked about his baseball card collection.

    What about the voice of Gerry Lee?
    How did it get so high?
    I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy . . .

    I'm a fan, but I thought the article was worth sharing. The guys in Rush would probably love it too. Once in concert they showed a video between the end of the set and the encore. Something like this:

    You see Alex, Geddy and Neil entering the dressing room:
    Alex: "I saw one by the soundboard."
    Geddy: "There were actually two in the second row, stage left."
    Neil: "Wow, three women at a Rush concert! That must be a record!"

    One of the times I saw Rush, the show started and the two seats next to me were empty. Halfway through the second song, a guy and his girlfriend showed up to those seats. The guy leaned over and asked me what song they missed. I said "Tom Sawyer." He got visually pissed. I interpreted this not as him being angry, but being pissed because he knew that was the only song his girlfriend would recognize or enjoy, and now the whole show was ruined.

    When I was young in the late 70's, everything I HATED in music could be summed up by the Rush title (and not song, because I have never heard it)

    "By-Tor And The Snow Dog"

    I hated them in my youth, but have come to respect them now. Any band with their own identifiable sound, has to be respected.

    I could never understand how Rush became popular and I am, frankly, embarrassed that my son sort of likes them.

    Rush is the 2nd most annoying, highly-successful rock band ever

    I worked security at the Capitol Centre in Largo Maryland in 77 -78 and they came in concert.
    I had no idea who they were but I could see them on a crappy monitor and told the guy I was working with..
    hey the chick lead singer is pretty hot looking..
    Wrong..

    Lived in Baltimore during that time. You must have seen tons of great concerts

    This is a couple of years later, but maybe this kind of takes you back
