QUOTE (liddybuck01 @ Dec 14 2008, 07:07 AM) i hope you realize how lucky you are to have grown up with Rush. i would kill to have been around for each new album release as some as you were, and to go to each tour that went with it. i honestly can't imagine what it would've been like opening a brand new Rush album and putting it on for the first time to hear what they came up with this time. paying, what, about $10 to go see them play a show, which we now know were some of their best. i just can't fathom how awesome it must've been.
being only 21(22 in like, 3 days!) and just becoming a fan, sadly, right after S&A was released, i've not experinced that Rush rush yet. i saw them in June but i'm sure it's no comparison to what they were doing 30 years ago.
so i just wanted to say that and hope that you appreciate being old!
i wish i had a Delorian...
I can't say that I appreciate being old. Well sort of that dreaded middle age. 42. It sucks being single though, one thing that is longed for is the real soul mate that I would connect with, but thats not what you are talking about.
I was 14 in 1980 and I remember going out to buy Permanent Waves.
I had actually been introduced to RUSH music 4 years previous but being only 10 and a sometimes typical kid running through the house screaming out song lyrics I was not paying full attention yet.
Then MTV in the beginning when it actually played music, and the time Exit Stage Left played. I remember laying on the floor in front of an old console TV watching it and thinking how cool the guys were and how much I liked them and how much I was attracted to them.
My first RUSH concert for the Powerwindows Tour. All the Circus magazines with RUSH stories in them.
Radio stations that actually played them, and not just the 3 main songs that are played now.
I was actually growing up at the end of a good era, so yes I am happy for all those memories and many more that are too long and drawn out for me to type up.
If you want to, just live in your own world of the past the way I do. It makes me happy and I feel better and smile about the "FUN OLD DAYS"
