I am going to let this post slide since with the posting I made about Rush and the Grateful Dead that is quoted in Neil's book "Traveling Music" makes this legitimate.

However the posting about KC and The Sunshine and Rush is ridiculous. There is no connection whatsoever with both bands.

That particular thread was a spoof on all of the other alleged connections between Rush and <X band>.

Frankly, I don't see the connection AT ALL between Rush and GD, but I have refrained from commenting much in this thread.

Some of you are really scraping the bottom of the bowl for things to post about.  This, then the KC and the Sunshine band post? Are you guys on drugs, FFS?

Blame reani14.

And it appears that this is typical.

At this point I don't even blame reani14. He probably sits here laughing at all the people who take these threads so seriously.

It's comparing apples and oranges.

I will say this, however:

Grateful Dead - best American group of all time
Rush - best Canadian group of all time

Totally agree (as both a Deadhead and a Rushian)

I didn't even open the KC & The Sunshine Band thread.  Promise.

I have nothing against the Dead but I do find the music dull.  (Sorry goober).  I did have one "sort of" Dead experience in college when I accompanied a friend downtown so she could purchase and trade some bootlegs with the rich hippies in the Dead tent city. It wasn't a loss - I did come away with a cool tie-dye shirt. And everyone was quite nice.

After a couple of hours in "Deadville",  I will say this for Rush fans:  we are, on the whole, well-acquainted with soap and the other tools of personal hygiene.  I got the feeling that pulling out a bar of Zest at a Dead show would cause mass panic, possibly a stampede of some sort.

Yes, typical - but if you hold on long enough these ones sometimes will turn into something interesting..

For me it will be Rush, but you can't dismiss the brilliant TGD. The world of music would be a sadder place without TGD.

Nah, it wouldn't be sadder, just less stoned.

Everything's not a Rush reference, sometimes we're kidding around.
