Rush

Anyone else obsessed with rush? I love them so much.... Geddy Lee is an insane bass player, and neil peart has a drumkit that is 360 degrees of percussion, then Alex Lifeson ties it all together with the guitars.... my current fav song is YYZ. Discuss

Rush is just plainly one of the most talented bands ever. They are the example of a power trio. And my favorites are La Villa Strangiato and Anthem.

i think that all of rushes songs are brilliant, they are insane with some of the stuff they do, like how they all switch on and off with rythm and lead, also how they can do stuff that no one else can do

Rush is absolutely amazing. All of their styles of playing just fit together so perfectly. And Neil Peart's drumming...well...it speaks for itself.

My favorites are La Villa Strangiato, YYZ, and Limelight.

Rush are a great Canadian band, one of the bands from over here that are actually good. Neil Pert is such an amazing drummer, with one of the most extensive drum kits I've ever seen. Alex Lifeson is a great guitarist, and his style compliments them so well. Geddy Lee is an awesome bassist, and I like his singing, although I know a lot of people who think it's too high. Overall Rush=amazing.

Rush are pretty awesome. 2112 and A Farewell To Kings are really great albums.

Rush are... yeah, a power trio. They're all awesome at what they do. I also love how the bass plays a bigger part in their music than most bands..

I would have to say my favorite song by them is the Spirit of Radio. I love that riff at the beginning.
