Music Groups - Rush

Rush is a Canadian rock band originally formed in August 1968, in the Willowdale neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario, composed of bassist, keyboardist, and lead vocalist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson, and drummer/lyricist Neil Peart. The band and its membership went through a number of re-configurations between 1968 and 1974, achieving their definitive form when Peart replaced original drummer John Rutsey in July 1974, two weeks before the group's first U.S. tour.

1 @ParkerTillman I think I'd have to agree with you as far as Post-Signals, Rush were a different band. I suppose that could be said about Rush after Hemispheres. Conveniently, that was their last '70s album, so I can tidily divide Rush's career into three parts: The '70s, the early '80s (Permanent Waves, Moving Pictures, Signals, arguably Grace Under Pressure although they were taking different directions with that album, I consider this the zenith for the band), and sort of everything else after. Granted, I got older and my tastes changed and that may account for the "everything after" phase. Still, with "everything after", we're talking about fewer hits but the band still has talent and some solid singles, and they're still better than just about everything else out there. Thirty-plus years, incredible! -- Submitted By: (thohan) on January 16, 2013, 10:42 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Any group that can boast Neil Peart as their drummer has to be great! He is in a class by himself. -- Submitted By: (jimdcarter) on November 29, 2012, 10:09 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 If it were up to me, they would have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a long time ago. They still put out excellent albums and put on amazing shows after all these years. Most importantly, they have never become a nostalgia act, mainly because their music is so timeless. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on August 1, 2012, 12:31 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I voted 1980s, but really they boned when they stopped working with Terry Brown as co-producer. After "Signals", the last album to be co-produced by Brown, that 1980s trend of the synthesizer taking the band over kicked in, as can be heard on "Grace Under Pressure" and to an even greater extent on "Power Windows". The synth had always been a presence in their music, but on later records it tended to "shout down" the rest of the instruments. If the album doesn't say "Produced by Rush and Terry Brown" I don't bother. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 4:36 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Rush has consistently done what few other bands have managed to do. Be unique. Rush doesn't follow trends, they make trends. They don't worry about what the latest sound is and try to imitate it. They don't bone, they roll the bones. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 14, 2012, 2:54 am - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Rush is one of the very few bands that can change with the times and still stay faithful to their beginnings. -- Submitted By: (diezman) on November 19, 2009, 5:36 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
