Oh ya, one of my favorite bands back in the day. Lakeside park, 2112, and so many other good ones!

I really like their first self titled album. Working man is a rockin' song! I also like the song "Finding my way"

RUSH rocks!

John Rutsey. I think I read somewhere that he drank himself to death.

I saw them twice live in Seattle. They played 2112 complete.

One of my favorites after “The Necromancer” is from the same album- “Didacts & Narpets”

TURN IT UP DUDES!

Rutsey was the Drummer on the first album but was replaced before the first tour. Rutsey and/or managers didn't think he was healthy enough. Enter Neil Peart. and the rest is History. Not sure there is a more talented line up (Neil, Alex, and Geddy) than Rush? Easily the best band I have ever seen live!

Rush played in Portland in 1974, I remember paying $7.00 for our tickets, They all wore white tee shirts and grey Hagar slacks. I thought that the original drummer was still playing with the band. The Paramount billed the show's as a Catch a Risen Star, cheep mid-week concerts. I also saw the Ramones, although I never heard of them at the time. Commander Cody was a no show but some kid named George Thorogood played in his place. I'm guessing about 1985 ish there was a pre Olympic boxing trials where Money Mayweather boxed in Portland.
All sounds like years ago cause it was, thanks to KVAN 1480 am home of the Mono-Maniacs.

Brings me back to high my school days, thanks for sharing. Never saw them live, but was a favorite back than, I still have all their early albums, it was a pleasure watching Alex evolve from simple rough raw talent of workingman to one of the best fineness Guitar players of his time.

Never had the opportunity to see them.
I used their music to pre-meditate myself before College Team and Men's City league soccer matches and while downhill skiing.
WOW!

Saw them in the spring of 1975 at the Paramount. They opened for KISS.

The years when pyrotechnic show laws didn't much exist.

I went to KISS and RUSH instead of my Grant HS prom. Sat in the 4th row.

I first got turned on the Rush around 1975. A friend of mine and I dropped by his sister's house and proceeded to get completely Chinese-eyed. One of her roommates whipped out their first album with the giant pink RUSH letters. "Who the hell is Rush?", I wondered. He slapped it on the turntable, cranked up the watts, and 20 minutes later I'm a Rush fan for life. Bought that album a couple days later, and made all my buddies listen to it. I created a whole league of new Rush fans.
Saw them in '77 and again in '80, both times in the Coliseum. I wish I would've caught them earlier in the Paramount. Far superior venue.
Caught a helluva show there in '76; Tom Petty opening for The Ramones. It was billed as the "Punk Premier", since The Sex Pistols were just breaking out and punk was the current rage. I'd never heard of either one, but I definitely knew both acts after that show. Petty blew the roof off the dump.

Saw so many great shows there- AC/DC, Cheap Trick, The Tubes, Montrose, Journey (they were still unknown), Ted Nugent, and some others that I was too inebriated to remember.

Once a rocker always a rocker. Rush rocks. Had to test out my new bluetooth stereo speakers while canning tuna yesterday. One on each side of me while Chicago jammed out 'I'm a Man' long version.

Always loved 'The trees' just something symbolic and rock.

A good Documentary on Netflix. Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage. Still one of my favorite bands. 2112, Farewell to Kings, and Hemispheres are my faves. Didn't care for much after Moving Pictures.

That shouldn't be a question. What should be the question, is Rush the most talented band ever assembled? 3 musicians:


Neil Peart - considered #1 drummer
Geddy Lee- considered near the top for bass, could make an argument for #1
Alex Lifeson- well, for the life of me, I have no idea how he is never mentioned near the top for lead guitarist. He is easily top 10 and maybe top 5


When other bands discuss Rush, the talk about how hard it is to play their music. Too technical. That's Game, Set and Match!

When they asked Eddie Van Halen how it felt to be the best guitarist in rock and roll he said I don’t know, go ask Alex Lifeson.

ZZ Top is the only 3 member band that can compare to Rush IMO, mostly from the talent of one guy tho, Rush is multi talented.

Sorry. ZZ Top doesn't even come close. Don't get me wrong, I like them, but they are about as one dimensional as you can get.

Crosby, Stills and Nash are pretty good, though.

I watched Twisted Sister opening for Iron Maiden at the Aces High tour. It was at Memorial Coliseum back in the the day. Good times!

CS&N were a great easy listening harmonic band, with Nash as the standout singer, C&S were just ok singers, & nobody in the band was all that great on guitars, or drums, no way can they compare to a hard rock band like Rush, Gibbons altho one dimensional, was talented with his voice & guitar, more blues than hard rock early on tho, after MTV his stuff was way too commercial IMO, but can you blame him for cashing in?, he has gone back to his blues roots lately. Yep, it's hard to compare any 3 piece band to Rush, with one of the best guitar players, & drummers of all time, Lee held his own with voice, & bass as well. 4 piece hard rock band greatness has to go to Led Zeppelin with a top singer, & guitar player, some say top drummer too, they were very bluesy early on tho. As for greatest guitar players, no way can you narrow it down to 1, or fail to mention Hendrix, & Page. Buchanan, Gilmor, Satriani, Vai, Johnson, Hoey, & several others also deserve consideration.
