The details on this pic said RUSH 1968 - Alex Lifeson, John Rutsey, Geddy Lee, which would put them at 18 years old

This is probably from this era:

Geddy

He turned his basement into practice space for a band he formed with high-school friends. After the band began earning income from small performances at high-school shows or other events, he decided to drop out of high school and play rock and roll professionally. His mother was devastated when he told her, and he still feels that he owes her for the disappointments in her life. "All the shit I put her through," he says, "on top of the fact that she just lost her husband. I felt like I had to make sure that it was worth it. I wanted to show her that I was a professional, that I was working hard, and wasn't just a f***in' lunatic"

I kind of think it's just the fashion at the time. I think if I put any number of my older bros' friends in the 70s behind a set of drums they'd look like Peart.

Why didn't my bro look like Neil but some of his friends did? Come on.

His "look" wasn't (and still isn't) particularly unique.

Great pic. They couldn't even raise the basketball backboard for them. Maybe the HS wasn't that technically advanced yet.

Seriously, I didn't know John Rutsey to play the double bass kit - this is the only pic I have ever seen of him with the two bass drums
