  • Best Rush Experience
    Seeing them with my son and having him excited to see the band in person. We were in the 12th row on Geddy's side and when he came out my son looked at me and said, "Dad, it's him." Of all the Rush shows I saw, that was one of the best moments.

    Guitar, Bass
  1. I still think this is the pinnacle of Lee's bass playing. I love the lines, wish the sound was thicker, and wished he continued in this vein. Great melodies as well, but definitely dated. Still, I have a soft spot for it.
  2. The one I'd want as well. Since I saw the MTV concert when I was in junior high
  3. As a bass player, I believe that HYF is Geddy's best bass work.
  4. 1983...sixth grade. My friend and I were enjoying a two for Tuesday on the radio where they played Tom Sawyer and New World Man. His older sister laughed and brought us downstairs to hear PeW in its entirety. It gave me chills. I still feel that way listening to that record.
  5. Perfect album for me. Can not decide
  6. I still can’t stomach listening to superconductor
  7. Saw this tour in Rochester, NY. Last stop with Candlebox so they played the first verse of Working Man and Geddy sang it from back stage. Halfway through the show Alex teased the opening riff and Neil sat there with his arms folded.
  8. I remember liking it but probably because it was Rush and not because of the songs. It was my fifth new Rush album and the first one to contain a song I didn’t like. Superconductor. Still don’t like it. The album would be better if it were recorded a decade earlier by someone else.
  9. I have Tormato by Yes on 8 track
  10. Autumn for me is Hold Your Fire or Power Windows. Maybe it's because they were released at that time. No other album has a set time for me
  11. Scenes is a good album, but there is a bit too much bombastic pomposity for me. Maybe if they cut down some of the jams and took out some of the drama. I want to like DT a lot, but there are factors that make it difficult. Due to these elements, I choose 2112.
  12. I saw these guys open for Jethro Tull in 1990. I forgot about them. I'll have to dig them up.
