I don't think we need to have criteria for fans. I think anybody who likes at least some of their songs should be allowed to the fan party.

correct: we are fans of "different degreeeeeeees!..."

I couldn't tell you what a True Rush fan is. All I know is that I am one. Every since "All the Worlds a Stage" came out I couldn't wait until they put a new album out for me to listen to. I saw them 20 times, I owned all their live and studio albums at least once each(minus feedback). They've been my favorite band BY FAR for over 25 years. I think I qualify.  trink38.gif

Okay...the TRUEST fans are us females fans, and no two ways about it. smile.gif

Why?  Because we have to endure the "did you boyfriend drag you here?" questions at shows...and go the extra mile to PROVE that we really are fans.

I prefer the term aficionado.

Right on, bro - very good point. Mind if I steal your word for future reference?

Here's a fifth criterion I'm considering:
5. Rush is your favorite band.

The ability to sing along no matter whos watching and be able to yell some Geddy-like lyrics out loud at a stop sign -- and turn to the person in the car next to you and just smile as if to proclaim " I have Rush music in my soul and you do not -- and oh yes -- the ability to enjoy soup!

You just cost yourself a soup!

NO SOUP FOR YOU!

Now back to the Rush.  How about filling your car's CD changer with Rush CD's (one week each album and then rotate) and forcing your child to listen to them.  All the while explaining the meaning of the lyrics, the time changes, and the literary influences......does that count?

By some definitions, I would not be a true  2.gif  fan. I own few of their CD's and have never seen a concert. sad.gif  But then again, they are my favorite band, and I love their music. I think that counts! biggrin.gif

A true Rush fan should always back-up Rush.  When someone is trashing them, they shouls stand up for them.  They should also appreciate their music and what it means to other Rush fans.  You must know they do what they do for the love of music, not for money or anything like that.  You must BE PROUD to be a Rush fan.  And show your TRUE RUSH COLOURS!!!  Know they're music, love their music, feel their music, be their music...

Oh, and one more thing...A TRUE FAN MUST KNOW THAT THEY ARE THE BEST BAND IN THE WORLD!!!!!!

I have my original Exit.. Stage Left tape from high school.  The song listings on the tape are barely legible and there's masking tape on it to hold it together.

If anyone questions my loyalty to the band, I'm busting that out as my trump card.
