Did you ever get to see Rush in concert? I was fortunate enough to see them in 1981. Decent show.

You saw them in '81? Nice! I really only started to like them around Grace Under Pressure. I was fascinated with the Distant Early Warning video.

I've seen them three times. Each time, I did not go home disappointed. I got my money's worth.

It's a tragedy that we'll never see them on stage again. At the same time, they stuck around, and remained relevant, for forty years. Not many bands can say the same.

1. 2112 (my most favorite Rush song)
2. Xanadu
3. The Necromancer (maybe the most underrated song from Rush's catalog)
4. Cygnus X-1
5. The Camera Eye
6. Hemispheres
7. Fountain of Lamneth

I like them all but FOL is easily the weakest epic.
By-Tor & Snowdog, La Villa Strangiato and Natural Science are missing in the poll!
