Default Rush officially calling it quits.

Peart had announced his retirement 2 years ago but fans help out hope that there might be one last album and tour. Lifeson confirmed recently that the band if officially done.

Well, 41 years and 30 albums is a pretty damn good run!

Are you saying that adding Peart was a stupid line up change? Seemed like a good move to me.

Better that they end this way than running their legacy into the ground. At least people like Ozzy are kinda embracing the latter at this point.

No. The implication was that Rush didn't stain their legacy by changing members. And to think, if not for Rutsey's health he would have stayed in the band and they would most likely have fizzled out after 2-3 albums. Heck, they almost got dropped after Caress of Steel even with Peart at the helm for two albums.

But of course your interpretation is right and mine is wrong.

I didn't catch that you had removed the word stupid from OH's quoted post. That changes the meaning of what he said quite a bit.

Nice try on the misquote and Pete Bestish trivia Chula. ’

You’ve desecrated Rush’s sacred memory with a failed gotcha.

So sad...

Lighten the **** up and learn how to take a joke - hence the *cough* preface.

At least Rustey actually recorded an entire album with Rush. Best was canned before the Beatles began recording Meet the Beatles.

Whatever.

I’ve always had your back with pure Rush love and now you’ve gone and done me dirty. <\3

I doubt that he's very torn up about it tbh.
