    I like Rush - Never really got the hall of fame - it's kinda like artists to me (paint, etc) - they get determined that they are good by some committee or something
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    Rush is a very talented band

    Mr. Lee is well respected for his bass playing chops.

    It's not my music per se...


    But I respect them.

    Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage

    Pretty cool doc about them. What happened to the Professor and him actually talking about it is pretty interesting.

    They deserve it totally! Have deserved it for years. They could have stopped in 1983 with their music and STILL would have had enough accomplishments to be in there. In fact they should have cut the ribbon on that SHACK they call the hall of fame when they opened it!
    Think about the people that beat them in there.....
    Madonna? (rock and roll????)
    Faces? ....What? Are you serious? You mean the back up band for Rod freakin' Stewart?!!
    Beastie Boys....I love me some Beastie Boys, but to put them in there before bands like Rush, no way....Absolutely NO way.

    I agree Rush belongs in. I agree they could have stopped in 1983. Sometimes I think they *should* have stopped then.

    Your comment about the Faces just goes to show you don't know much about them though.

    Saw Rush in the 70's or maybe it was the very early 80's. Amazing amount of sound coming out of three musicians.

    Neil wrote 96 or 97% of the lyrics. Alex and Geddy admitted many times to just sort of being “along for the ride” along an immense never-ending literary tidal wave, trying to keep up with the accompanying music they provided that might have a chance of being relevant to Neil’s deep lyrical insight. As a self-taught drummer/percussionist, Neil’s amazing timing perfection had me mesmerized for many decades; it is only now that I can follow some of those odd meter time signature changes (transitioning from 4/4 to 11/4 or even from 5/4 to 11/8 for example). I’ve missed two opportunities to see them live; the next time they are in my area (apparently not in 2013 according to their website) I will not hesitate.

    Something happened after the album Signals—I am not sure what, but that was the last album I could actually enjoy listening to. Sometimes your roots are there for you to follow; trying to “reinvent” your musical identity can take a downturn.

    I saw them Live in 1979 in Denver. An amazing show. And I always likes the early RUSH better than later years. I favorite being "Lakeside". I always felt a connection with that song having spent some of my childhood and early teens on Lake Ontario in Rochester N.Y. Although the song was about a park across the lake in Toronto. It still ranks #1 with me. Rush - "Lakeside Park" live 1976 - YouTube

    In the 80s I saw 'em on May 24. I was a little disappointed that they didn't play Lakeside Park. Still think they are a great band - I may now consider the "rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame" a real thing now.

    No freakin' way! Were they touring with Max Webster then? I was on that tour (roadie with Max Webster). I know we played Denver but not sure of the year. 79 would be close.

    Lakeside Park is actually about Port Dalhousie (pronounced "da loozey") near St. Catharines. My old stomping grounds.

    I hate to come down on the other side of the fence, but Rush have never done it for me. I actually have to change the station if they come on the radio I dislike it so much, and I like a wide and disparate range of stuff. I always have felt that they were just ALMOST there, but made it too complex at the expense of musical flow, if that makes any sense! Maybe I shall recheck some of the earlier stuff and go for a second opinion tho...

    I don't recall Max Webster on that tour. I think
    Uriah Heep was with them. But anything's possible

    rush is one of those bands. they're not for everybody. I don't fault anyone for not liking them. it shows that you have your own musical taste and you're not just following the crowd.

    Max Webster is a band like that. In Toronto, it was a requirement to like Max back in the early 80's but I know that a lot of people who said they liked them just didn't "get" the music or the lyrics.

    Not to get off topic, but I would liked to have seen Rush and Max Webster. I heard they did "Battlescar" with Geddy here in Indianapolis.
    Kim Mitchell had some good stuff after Max Webster, too.

    I've been to the Presto, Snakes and Arrows and Clockwork Angels tours. I really like CWA as an album but Snakes and Arrows tour was way more enjoyable.

    Favorite album: Permanent Waves.

    Yep...You are right about my Faces comment. Sorry for offending their fans out there.
    This is kind of my point. I'm not certain of the accomplishments of Faces besides being an awesome sounding band for a charismatic front man. (A comment one could make about dozens of bands.) What I am fairly certain of is that if compared to Rush's body of work it couldn't measure up.
    I should have picked on someone else besides Faces, really. I mean Heart is in there too. Again, great band, but as a whole, not of the caliber of Rush.
    I'm so Rush biased it's not funny. A LOT of their fans are similar to me in thinking that they are a little more wonderful than they really are. I know this....Now I think I will go to WIKI and read up on Faces....Maybe download a few tunes from itunes.

    Best Rush show for me was Rush and Primus. Must have been about 1990? maybe a little sooner?
    For those who don't know Primus, let's just say it was the first mosh pit at a Rush concert I had ever seen.
    It was a total Bass guitar clinic...All night long. Geddy Lee and Les Calypool on one bill. Oh my!

    I always look at the HOF inductee list to see if Rush got in or not, just because Rush fans have been going spastic over it for years.

    Don't get me wrong, I like some Rush, I just don't like it all.

    Since we're picking out random snippets from songs to illustrate the artists entire body of work ...

    Keep on rockin' in the free world - very profound

    or...

    I was thinking that
    maybe I'd get a maid
    Find a place nearby
    for her to stay.
    Just someone
    to keep my house clean,
    Fix my meals and go away.

    Wow, Im floored by the deep meaning there Neal


    For the record, I love Neal Young. Just sayin'.

    As an aside, I once used part of a Rush lyric in a resignation letter..."I appreciate the opportunity to learn and grow"
    No moss...

    Don't get me wrong, I like some Rush, I just don't like it all.
    As spastic as I am about them I still can admit they have some stinkers....OK A LOT of stinkers. With 20 Albums spanning over 35years there are bound to be things that don't hit. I don't like all of it either.
    Actually it was stated before that perhaps they could have stopped in 1983. I think they lost a little edge, whatever it was, and never got it all back. Their best stuff was pre-mid-80's for sure.
    I like all different kinds of music. I do go a little crazy over a select few though.

    I was trying to be sarcastic. I grew up listening to Neil Young (and Bob Dylan, The Who, Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa, The Beatles, Cream, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Doors, The Grateful Dead, Fleetwood Mac, just to name a few—the list goes on and on), but in the mid-1980s Rush somehow just struck a positive note with me. Something about those time signature and tempo changes seamlessly integrating into the music. I was never really a big fan of Geddy’s voice, but it somehow complemented the orchestrative (not a real word, I know) nature of the musical compositions; I was more into the music than the lyrics, but after having read the works of Ayn Rand (Neil Peart was inspired by The Fountainhead in the writing of 2112, for example) I sort of understood where they were going with it, and it sort of made me think, “oh yeah, I can totally see a connection here”.

    I’m still bummed out that I missed that show… they also had another show where Primus opened up for them back in either the late 1990s or early 2000s. However, I got to see Fishbone open up for Primus back in 1992, that was some crazy sh*t right there.
