The Rush Thread

Recommended Posts

All the World's A Stage was my first Rush album back in the 70s and definitely a good one. I really should pick it up on CD at some point.

Believe it or not I still don't own Archives. Unfortunately I don't think it's still available or if it was even ever available on CD. I do remember it on vinyl though.

RUSH's Founding Drummer JOHN RUTSEY Dead At 55

Jason Ward of Q107 Classic Rock reports that John Rutsey, a founding member of Toronto rock band RUSH, passed away this weekend according to RUSH management company Anthem Entertainment. He was 55.

Rutsey was famous for playing on RUSH's 1974 debut album, including the song "In The Mood", before deciding to leave the group due to health concerns. Rutsey suffered from diabetes and was unable to go on extended tours with the group.

Rutsey was replaced by dummer Neil Peart, which marked a turning point in the band’s sound towards progressive rock.

I saw Rush in 74 with this guy. I think it was their first US tour. They opened for Rory Gallagher at the old Michigan Theater in Detroit. Gotta say i wasn't impressed with them at the time. I changed my mind later on, especially when they added Neil Peart.

I'm beginning to think that Al is rich and has seen every band known to man in concert. I feel not worthy...

In other news, I listened to Fly By Night, it was pretty good. I haven't listened to their debut, but I probably should in memory of Rutsey. I'm listening to Caress of Steel now. First listen too

I saw Rush in Reno the weekend before last (thanks to members here who encouraged me to go :) ). And I was BLOWN AWAYYYYY, it was one of the best concerts I have ever been too. I even had a little epiphany towards the end. Feeling the pounding bass coursing through my veins for 3 hrs (we had great seats right up close to Geddy), I thought "this feels like being in the womb again, hearing the constant reassuring beat of my mother's heart" and I felt like, YES! this is my natural environment, this is where I belong, in this room with the fantastic sounds of Rush.

Here's a couple of pics to give you an idea of our seat location:

Lots of Rush for me last week. I have to say that their more hard rock stuff (like Fly By Night and such) is pretty good. I was surprised how seriously kick ass "All The World's A Stage" was. "Signals" was good too. So much synth! I might listen to Grace Under Pressure later today.

Great photos and review! I am so glad that you were able to attend the Rush concert. :D

After reading the reviews of the recent concert that they had near here, I still regret that we didn't decide to attend. :(

They seem to tour on a regular basis so I'm confident there will be a next time. :)

How is that? Nothing the matter with Rush these days but All the World's A Stage captures them in their prime.

Oh, and funny how you'd make a crack about the Drive-By Truckers' audience having mullets (which is a crock of shit if I've ever heard it) when Rush's audience was once full of them, including the band members themselves.

I couldn't believe my eyes when my new issue of Rolling Stone arrived today (Obama cover) with a lengthy feature on Rush (that's right, Rush) included. It's well worth picking even for the most skeptical of skeptics especially when it comes to Rolling Stone's previous miniscule coverage of Rush. It's an extremely well done and very complimentary article.

Saw them at the Nokia Theater in LA last month. Great show! We were collectively stunned to hear Geddy hit the high notes in Freewill (something he's dodged for decades). The sound in that place was phenomenal! State of the frickin art!

And yes, All the World's a Stage was my first album too, Jahfin. Followed by Archives. And then the rest as they came out. B)

I'm 13 and the only Rush song I've heard is Working Man but it's great, I've looked for samples of some more songs but can't find any.

You can hear tons of samples at sites such as Amazon. Either that or just go ahead and take the plunge by purchasing one of their records.

Rush to perform for The Colbert Report

Canadian rock band Rush will make a live appearance on U.S. television for the first time in 30 years with an appearance on The Colbert Report Wednesday.

The veteran band, which formed in Toronto in 1968, will play its classic Tom Sawyer.

Rush's members are singer Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer Neil Peart.

The Colbert Report, which made its name by parodying conservative political pundits, has lately moved toward frequent musical performances.

John Legend, Neil Young, R.E.M., Tony Bennett, Peter Frampton, Willie Nelson, Barry Manilow, John Mellencamp, the Roots and Carole King have all performed on the show.

The rapper Nas will perform on July 23, Toby Keith will return for a second performance on July 28 and Crosby, Stills and Nash will play July 30 on the Comedy Central show.

Host Stephen Colbert mixes his enthusiasm for music with parodies of MTV-style band interviews.

Rush, currently touring North America in support of Snakes & Arrows, has dates coming up in Calgary, London, Ont., Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Quebec City.

The band last appeared live on U.S. TV in 1975.
