Hello everyone!

I am a designer studying at art school, and I'm headed to RushCon this November in Toronto... I was thinking of designing a tee shirt and a poster of the 10 Rush Commandments.  Reply with any ideas you may have!!

This is what I have so far...

Thou shalt not pronounce “Peart”like “Pert”.
Thou shalt always appreciate the number 2112.
Thou shalt not prefer Rutsey over Peart.
Thou shalt always air drum to Tom Sawyer.
Thou shalt always wear Rush shirt to Rush concert.
Thou shalt always slappa’ da bass.  
Thou shalt own all Rush albums.
Thou shalt always prefer the kimonos over the mullets.

Rush is thy Power Trio; thou shalt exalt no other power trios before them

Sorry, but "Slappin da bass" is just stupid.  It made me cringe, and it still does.

I'm glad you get to go to Toronto!  So this is a t shirt for yourself, or will you be selling them?

The Beatitudes would work too. After all, "...the meek shall inherit the earth"

This is the gospel according to JohnnyBlaze. :blaze:

You are a bit unfair to Rutsey.....

He was a good drummer as well, and Rush would not have been here today if it was not for him.

Not unfair to Rutsey at all.  He was a good drummer, but Neil made Rush great with his drumming and his lyrics.  If Rutsey had stayed in the band, Rush would have been done by 1976.  The best thing he did for the band was to leave.

Care to make your case, or are you going act like a 4 year old and just say it is unfair?
