I love Rush as much now as I ever have, maybe even more .. Over time, the songs only get better

But they've never been my favorite ..

This is actually pretty close to the way it always has been

I can't say they are my most fave band, but one of top 5 for sure. I don't even know which band I would put as my No 1, it would be very tough.

They are one of the two most important bands in my life, past and present. (And I know that doesn't necessarily make them a favorite, does it? But yes, they are).

I may go for months without listening to them sometimes, but that doesn't change their status with me. When I hear those songs, those albums, no matter how long it's been, it just brings it all back home.

How to explain this...

For myself, Rush sit 'outside' of all the other bands and music I enjoy.

I can go for ages without listening to them, but when I do I still get goosebumps and think "god damn that song kicked ass".

I love music and always have from as far back as I can remember. My mother was a gifted classical pianist..having studied under a student of Rachmaninoffs. She played while carrying me, and all through my infancy..As a young child, many nights I'd lie in bed listening to her play and drift off to sleep listening to music.

When it comes to music, I love all kinds....and I mean LOVE all kinds. But when it comes to bands, I only love one. Rush.

To me, Rush isn't just about the music. It's about a combination of things...the music, the lyrics, the charities, the work ethic, the humor, the friendship, their relationship with their fans, and so much more. Sure, hearing Rush play music struck a chord deep within me but its the rare combination of all the above that make them so important to me.

After listening to their music, watching their films, reading their books, meeting (2 of them) in person, attending their shows, etc etc for nearly FORTY years, they are without a single doubt, my favorite band...and at this stage of my life, they will clearly always be my favorite band... Just not for the reasons that most would think.
