I'm fifteen and fairly certain I'm of the male gender.  It seems as if I may be the youngest person here.  Hmm, not unusual, especially considering the type of music I listen to.  I'm pretty sure I was the only person under 25 who seriously wanted to see Larry Carlton in concert, yet that fell through due to my being under the legal drinking age.  I do get funny looks when I wear Rush shirts to school, which I find to be funny in and of itself.  There is, however, another kid at school who wears the shirts, but I somehow get the impression he doesn't actually listen to Rush, due to him saying his favorite song from 2112 is "Tom Sawyer."

Theres some who are younger, I think one guy said he was 13.  I am noticing a surge in the younger fans here so far, great news.  Now we got us an army against the old foagies. biggrin.gif

Well I am in the majority which is males 36-45, not surprising considering when Rush evolved. But kudos to all Rush fans and especially to those younger fans and the fans of the fairer sex. It's so refreshing to see that there really are female Rush fans. I was beginning to think that was impossible. I never could get any girlfriends into Rush. Oh, well, their loss I have always thought.

Yes, we really DO exist!  And yes, I drool copious amounts over a certain drummer.  HOWEVER...I also know the lyrics, much to the amazement of the guys sitting near me at the shows this summer.

GhostGirl, you've just stated exactly why I don't understand why more females are not into Rush. The lyrics. The words. It's basically a proven fact that women are better communicaters than men and I for one agree. Some things just are the way they are and chauvinists and feminists can argue all day long about it but it doesn't change the underlying truth ( green ;-)  sorry couldn't resist.

And as for the physical/mental attraction, that's an added bonus isn't it? For me, being a guy, the comparison would be Joan Osbourne. I like her songs (though she has a number of co-writers) and she's what I like to call "all-woman". She's just a turn-on for me.
