Ishkur: Farty McPooPants: Did Rutsey stay a part of the band in some capacity?  He was the heart of it all in the beginning and it wasn't like he simply quit or had creative differences.  Anybody know?

That is interesting. Who knows what their career might have sounded like if the drummer didn't have an annoying tendency to overdrum every single farking thing.


I actually know nothing about Rush, this image was just too good not to use

SilentStrider: Saw them live last year. They still kick ass.

Every tour since Grace Under Pressure.  Mainly in Philly, but have seen them a few times at Madison Square Garden...Once in Pittsburgh, Florida, Vegas, LA, and Phoenix.

Peart is no Charlie Watts though.

PC LOAD LETTER: 16) It was pretentious and overblown?

3 of the most talented musicians ever. Some of their songs are great. Many are good. The rest, meh.

Peart wasn't on the first album.

And I had forgotten that their first costumes were designed by the chicks from Abba.
