It's always good to have a rotation of bands you listen to. As much as someone might love their favorite band, there's nothing wrong with taking a break from them and discover other music.

You know how often I actually listen to Queen these days?

Those albums, at least most of them, are embedded in my DNA, entwined with my soul.

It's really not that often. I always keep their music on me, bring a couple of their records to campus with me, have all their albums on my iPod which I always carry, but there's not usually much of an urge to listen to Queen because I can basically run through most of their music note for note in my head in my sleep. When I do listen to Queen, I still love it and enjoy the experience thoroughly, but most of the time it's much more interesting to expose myself to new music or to get into a groove with other music that's speaking to me at the moment. Queen will always be there for me when I need them, but some days I need to hear Eve 6 and Fall Out Boy, and other days it's Judas Priest and Megadeth, and other days its Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West, and other days it's MisterWives and Michael Jackson.

The possibility to listen to Queen is always present so you don’t have to miss them.

I wonder how your love of them would’ve been affected if you had grown up in the 70s when we didn’t even have Walkmans...[i think they started being sold at the very very end of the 70s].

I’m not saying that one generation is greater or lesser than another. I’m saying that having music (and the entire catalogue of our favorite musicians) at our fingertips these days must affect our relation with music.

Just thinking out loud really.

I'm amazed my ears still hear after growing up with that Sony Walkman.  I used to play my Rush cassettes at volume 10 with shite foam cheap Sony earphones to my drums.

BEATS work so much better.

As in Queen as in RUSH.  Always present in recorded format.

Rush will keep me blessed and cursed for another 50 years baby.  FUCKK IT!

There’s no “cursed” with Rush. Only BLESSED! :blaze:

It’s all good. You’re still a fan. Once you’re hooked, it never all goes away. You’re just in a slump.

Also, isn’t the phrase “vinyl records” redundant? I thought all records were made of some form of vinyl.

Zumbi, be rest assured that you will get the urge again and be back in the Rush fold

I say this not simply because it happened to me, but because with Rush, they have such an enormous body of work with so many different eras and angles that they came from ..... If not Caress Of Steel, you have Grace Under Pressure or Hold Your Fire or Hemispheres .. There is so much even if you don't feel the urge for one era ..
