    You know, I'm semi w/the OP as for tastes, but WHO CARES what I think & what good does it do to tell the innernetz if'n they dint ask me?!?

    *maybe*- priceless

  2. I gotta give props to anyone who can sing and play in two different time signatures...Geddy's style is not my thing, but I admire his virtuosity

    Haha, yeah that takes no talent. I'd love to see your band, something tells me you couldn't even play 1/2 of Rush's catalog and you couldn't comprehend even more of it.

    Go write something that traverses time signatures without the public noticing and make a hit if it is so easy.

    If you think a band as deep as Rush is immature I would love to see what you listen to. They know more about chords and timing than 95% of bands out there. There is a reason they are one of the greatest selling groups of all time, right up there with the Beatles and Elvis.

    Not everyone's going to love them but hate is an ugly word. Now slow the motor down so I let the lure run deep......

    To me, it's Geddy's voice that's annoying.

    Otherwise, I like their songs and his playing/tone.

    Listen to La Villa Strangiato's guitar solo. If you do not feel SOMETHING you have no soul...

    ah, I'm just razzing OP - he has to expect that after dissing Geddy and co. on TB. I couldn't care less what others think of the things I like. My best buddy is anti-rush too. Smart cat and a brilliant musician but Rush just doesn't push any of his buttons.

    I've got some of Geddy Lee's concert worn undies, every once in a while I put them on and then practice and I notice I play with a tad more verve, I can rent them to you if want, you can't wash them tho.
  14. Oh, wow. If anything, I think this is a perfect example of a "bombs away at the OP" kind of thread.

    People, it's the webz. Anyone can and should post their opinion wherever and whenever they like without you guys getting your panties in a bunch. Respect alternative tastes, not every single bass player on Earth loves Rush.

    Hah! And you guys made fun of me for calling Jazz musicians overrated. Does this mean I'm not the most hated person on the forum anymore?

    I used to like Rush a ton however i just got out of it. I don't dislike Rush and if it's on I don't mind but i don't seek it.

    LOL. So Rush is just another garage band? You know, until you pointed that out, I never saw the similarities between Rush and The Kingsmen before!

    Mmmmmmmm, nahhhh, still don't. :p

    So you don't like them. No problem. But I'll bet there are a ton of people here who feel nothing but disdain for what YOU consider to be emotion filled, mature, authentic prog rock. how about some examples? :rolleyes:
  20. Are we supposed to open new threads for every artist we dislike...or should we stick to those more accomplished and well known bands/artists as a measure to call more attention for ourselves? :meh: ?
