Tick Posted February 21, 2011 Author Share Posted February 21, 2011 (edited) QUOTE (Todem @ Feb 21 2011, 10:22 AM) At Rushgoober, I did not want to quote 6 blocks of replies. But to answer your question about post 80's Rush being able to draw in fans. My then new girlfriend (now my wife of 12 years) loved Test For Echo. We met after that album was released and I took her to that tour after dating for only 2 months (front row in front of Geddy wow!). Well after our first 2 dates the important questions of music (to me musical taste tells me almost everything about people) came to light and I asked her about Rush.....first comment was, yeah I love that song on the radio Test for Echo, they sound like a great band. She was 21 at the time and had never been exposed to Rush. Needless to say she did not have a clue it was the same band that played Tom Sawyer and TSOR ( which after playing her she said oh yeah I have heard these songs before). She still adores Test for Echo as one of her top 5 Rush albums (not mine) and proves that even their newer stuff was drawing in another generation of fans. I have met people that swear by Roll the Bones and Counterparts as the albums that hooked them. Rush just has that power. When your good....your good. Agreed. There is no question that each era of Rush was its own success. I know people my age who did not embrace the Rush progressive albums of the 70's but became diehard fans in the 80's and are still big fans today. Other fans like Pags did not take notice of the band much until Roll The Bones was released. Every decade is part of the legacy of Rush. The legacy did not end at some point and they lived off that success to this day. If you believe that you are delusional.
