The band, which hails from Canada, formed in the late 1960s but made several personnel changes before rolling its current lineup out with 1974’s self-titled debut album.

:oops:

ETA:  We should email blast this guy over the error.  Assault of the RUSH-Nerd Alliance.  :D

Maybe it's just me but IMO it's pretty bad journalism if you make a mistake that could easily have been corrected by visiting the relevant official site and/or wikipedia page. This is a news paper and not some Joe Blow blog.

First paragraph from the Rush wikipedia page...

Quote

Rush is a Canadian rock band formed in August 1968 in the Willowdale neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario. The band is composed of bassist, keyboardist, and lead vocalist Geddy Lee; guitarist and backing vocalist Alex Lifeson; and drummer, percussionist, and lyricist Neil Peart. The band and its membership went through several reconfigurations between 1968 and 1974, achieving its current form when Peart replaced original drummer John Rutsey in July 1974, two weeks before the group's first United States tour.

No, it's not just you.  It's sloppy journalism, and there is no excuse for the error.

I used to write for a magazine covering Texas High School Football.  I've made errors before.  Sometimes I actually knew the facts and I just wrote them down wrong.  I don't begrudge the guy too much.  I'm sure the Tulsa paper doesn't have much of a budget to hire editors and fact checkers for their entertainment articles.  I noticed the mistake and someone pointed it out in the comments section on the paper's website, but I'm just glad they wrote the article and had some positive things to say about the band.

If the guy should be blasted about anything it is the poor grammar in that sentence.

wow, this is a pretty sloppy error to make considering he could have done better by spending 30 seconds on wikipedia. Nevertheless, the tone of the article is very positive so cut the writer slack. We've all screwed up before and I doubt many people in Tulsa who read that paper will even know who Rush is
