Didn't mean to imply that a person should ONLY like Rush.  A teenaged boyfriend got me into the band when I was 15.  You know those hours spent listening to every album on vinyl.... yeah.  After that none of my boyfriends liked Rush; they either hated Rush or were not that into music at all.  Would just be nice to have this in common with someone, is all.  I'm fortunate to have a lot of friends who I in turn turned onto Rush or met on the 'Net 20+ years ago so that when I have gone to other cities for shows there have always been friends there.

My husband had heard of them, and knew some of their songs, enjoyed listening to them with me, but after he saw them live, wow, he is almost more of a fanatical fan than I am, lol

good thing too because there is not a big Rush following in my area, most people think of Rush Limbaugh if I mention Rush, none of my current friend listen to them

I would never want to date another Rush fan.

Then there would be the same never-ending arguments about albums and songs that happen on TRF.

...and it wouldn't last.

Narps, I love your animated avatar.  Did anyone ever figure out who JMT was (high scorer)?

Super, my brother and I "discuss" these things and haven't disinherited each other.... yet.

I posted this pic awhile back , but considering the topic, I'll post it again . . . . Me and my first girlfriend, early 80s ... She was a huge Rush fan when we met - and I painted the Fly By Night cover on her jacket ( on our first date, she gave me the jacket to paint - I held the jacket hostage to ensure she would see me again :)

Rock and roll

LOL

Need to start a Rush Dating Thread.

My interests include scenic hikes with my dog, sunsets, and Hemispheres. No Hold your Fire fans need apply.

Ummm yeahhhh...my point exactly. I'm afraid certain albums that the other doesn't appreciate would mysteriously disappear.
