I know Alan Green is a big Rush/Lifeson guy. He must be on vacation. :)

I'm back - the builders have been working in the bedrooms and the kitchen so I've not had much pc access whilst we've been crashing at Kathy's place.

Limelight
Red Sector A
Working Man - go on, play it reggae style
Closer To The Heart

"Closer To The Heart" is what turned me on to Rush. Veteran UK members will recall The Old Grey Whistle Test, a rock show which went out late on Tuesdays on BBC2. The immortal Bob Harris introduced the vid last item up one night. I was hooked; my Dad just sat there with a look of abject horror on his face and he never remotely got into them.

Best,

A :-)

rush has always been oneof my favs, workingman off the " all the worlds a stage" album
is a classic, alex'es playing is over the top, he is an incredible guitar player and probably one of the most underated guitar players there is, and you gotta give props to the "proffesor on the drum kit" mr. neil peart, his solo is the best i have ever heard, he, imo is the best drummer of all time. ohh ya, the whole 2112 album, one of the best albums ever made.

GREAT POST 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

even god loves rock-n-roll

By the way = what does everything think of Geddy's solo album. I thought it was pretty good.

I always liked Alex's acoustic going into electric. I'll vote for the Trees today. May be different tomorrow. :D

Perhaps his best example (IMHO) is La Villa Strangiato. He rocks on that tune...

I don't have just one fav either: Fly By Night, Working Man, Freewill.

I'm in St. Louis, and KSHE95 plays quite a bit of RUSH!! I like them.

Growing up in Buffalo, NY so close to Canada you HAD to ne a Rush fan as well as Kim Mitchell & Triumph fan.

I like Rush more now than I did in the late '70s. I would have to say that Spirit of Radio is probably my fav.

As for Kim Mitchell, On the Road and Words to Words are two great seldom heard songs.

And Triumph, Magic Power for sure.

My favorite song is YYZ - incredible display of tasty musicianship from all three! I also love Subdivisions, but mainly because that song was a hit when I was a teen, and growing up in the MYC suburbs, I related to the song's message. Then, of course the whole first side of the 2112 album (yes, I said ALBUM, not CD :P ).
