Paul Fairfield is a Philosopher at Queen's University and he recently published a short podcast praising Rush.  It's about 11 minutes long.  Today was crazy so I've only listened to about half and Dr. Fairfield kind of talks in a monotone (sorry) but here is the link if anyone likes podcasts or just listening at the computer!

Why should RUSH be considered one of the greats?

First and foremost, the band's music is UNIQUE.  You can't describe Rush's music in terms of some other band or musical style.  You can't say, "They sound like ________."  You just can't.  

Very few bands can make that claim.

Supertramp immediately comes to mind as another band that could complete that statement.
