    I was a drummer through high school and also started playing bass at that time, so I'm a big RUSH fan.

    I absolutely hate Rush
    Musically, they are ok enough
    But Geddy Lee needs to shush
    sounds like someone skinnin' a cat

    But that's only my opinion

    Ditto and to think he is trying to sound like Robert Plant. Not to mention Rush has one song...Tom Sawyer, I don't care what they name it, it is still Tom Sawyer.

    I love YYZ, awesome tune! And being a drummer, you can't not like listening to Neil Peart.

    Always been a rush fan, but then I'm Canadian so it's required I think my favourite song would have to be Red Barchetta.

    Hehe...I stated myself as a drummer Yes, Peart is a percussionist and one of the few with a doctors degree (or whatever it's called) in it as well.

    I'm a HUGE RUSH fan. I play bass, bass pedals, a little bit of synth.

    I don't listen to them as much as I used to though. I know lots of folks either can't stand Geddy's voice, or don't grasp music in odd time signatures ( which they don't do as often ), but that's what makes music great, something for everyone !

    Perminent Waves and Grace Under Preasure here. But on an retort. Neil Peart is not "a" percussionist. He is THE percussionist. (I have been drumming all my life)

    Not really a fan, but i do respect thier talents and influence
  22. Jul 11, 2009, 7:37 PM - Re: Unoffical RUSH poll #22

    I bought my first Rush album along with Billy Idol, Generation X, The Fixx, Devo and The Euryhtmics when I joined that stupid buy six albums get the next 3 for a penny club. I did it without asking my parents, so needless to say I listened to all of them while I was grounded for two weeks. Tom Saywer is bitchin'

    Being a drummer myself like a few others who posted in this thread, yeah, listening to RUSH is sort of a requirement.
