With this week's sad news of the passing of Neil Peart, music fans are facing up to the fact that the career of Rush is over apart from the memories and memorials. There was a discussion about the end of the band on this board a few years back: Alex Lifeson says Rush are "basically done" Most agreed Rush had finished as a touring/recording entity, but there remained a few glimmers of hope. No longer. With that in mind, what Rush are you playing to remember the band? Personally I recall reading a short article in Creem magazine in 1976 about the band and their interest in the prog rock tradition, and the concept behind 2112. That year I asked for All The World's A Stage for my birthday not long after it was released. I had not heard any Rush at all at the time, since if you can possibly imagine they were not played on FM radio, at least where I was. And MTV was a few years away. So this morning as soon as I hear the neighbours are awake I am going to put on that album and recall just what it was like first hearing it on my fifteenth birthday, six months before I went to my ever first rock concert.
