RUSH

28 December 2011 - 12:19 AM

Did a quick search and couldn't find an existing thread on Rush. Any fans in the Little Room?

I realize that Neil Peart is pretty much the antithesis of Meg White when it comes to drumming, but nonetheless I think these guys deserve respect. If Jack and Meg are an admirable example of making the most out of a two-person musical unit, I think a strong argument could be made for Rush being a pretty versatile power-trio. Point and case, Neil writes the overwhelming majority of the band's lyrics (which are respectably thoughtful and insightful) while similarly possessing madman drumming abilities (granted they are taken to excess on all sorts of occasions), while Geddy has been known to sing, play bass with foot pedals, and play synthesizer all at the same time. Alex too has been known to work the synthesizer in the live setting as well, but mostly just shreds it on guitar.

Anybody hate Rush? I'm curious to hear the arguments for/against this band.
