I listened to Rush a lot as a youth, along with several other bands. I am a guitar guy. The guitar is what grabs my listening attention to most rock music that I like.

I popped 2112 into the player yesterday and focused on Neil Peart's drumming. We all know he is an extraordinary drummer, but wow...

I have said this before about the ABB too....if (and for me that is a BIG IF) if you can tear your attention away from the dueling guitar show and then Gregg's legendary vocals...the backbeat rhythm thing going on is phenomenal. It is just, for me anyhow, difficult to not focus on the guitar.

Anyhow, back to Rush...what a group of talented musicians. And to have made it this long in their career without the standard rock group bickering etc...quite a story.

Pull your copy of 2112 out, put it in and listen to those drums......awesome.

I do like the feeling of the re-discovery of an artist you kind of forgotten about.
I have been reading a biography of Brain Wilson and the Beach Boys, and that book made me go back to listen to their surfing music-I get Around, Barbara Ann, Help Me Rhonda, Surfin Safari, California Girls, and I have re-appreciated the fabulous genius of Brian Wilson, his great falsetto voice and the rest of the Beach Boys harmonies. Great Stuff!!!

I was turned onto RUSH Hemispheres by a freind way back in 9th grade...I was hooked ever since. I have seen every tour since 1980 (12 shows)

I agree with 2112 definitely my favorite but what impresses me the most of RUSH is how they have evolved as a band....

When I got my first CD player around 1988 , I had a vinyl colletion that was in the 700+ range. So as time has gone on I have replaced many favorite vinyl records with CD's. Recently I got an e-mail from Amazon about the release of Hot Tuna's "First Pull Up Then Pull Down" on CD. I actually recall getting the vinyl copy at a second hand store in Brooklyn oh so long ago !! I just listened to it this morning. I a big fan of Electric Hot Tuna more than their accoustic work and this album still holds up quite well. Poppa John Creach is featured on violin on this album which is still a fun listen. I can remember listening to it , after I copied it to cassette on some camping trips back in the day. My 10 year old nephew started learning violin last year and I've played him some of Charlie Daniels stuff which he really liked and I'm looking foward to giving him a listen to Poppa John at work.

My favorite Rush album! The first side of 2112 was the first live rock music I experienced at my first concert in 1981 and it sent chills up my spine. Peart's drumming on that record is nothing short of amazing!

I was listening to 2112 on my Bose headphones on the way to work a few days ago!!
One part of the song features some sound effects of running water, that sound really cool in the headphones. I also like "Twilight Zone" and "Passage to Bankok."

My favorite Rush albums are their first two RUSH and FLY BY NIGHT.

My first concert was seeing Rush in the middle of a bill with Foghat opening up and Mother's Finest opening up at the Palladium in December 1976. Pretty unforgettable experience and I saw Rush everytime they played New York from 76-80 including seeing them headline at the Capitol. Pretty much lost interest after 1980 as their sound became more commercial (whch obviously people loved). I think Peart is the best drummer I ever saw live and 2112 is their masterpiece. Will put it on my ipod today. Thanks for remembering.

As you might guess from my screen name (jfk2112), 2112 is my favorite Rush album. I do tend to rank All The World's A Stage a little higher these days though because it gives and incredible overview of their early work and style.

I just listened to David Gilmour's self-titled solo album. I haven't listened to it in years. Anyone who thinks Pink Floyd was all Roger Waters should check it out. Any fan of rich guitar tones and masterful phrasing should also check it out.

The 2009 ABB Beacon CD's. I have not listened to them in a long time. Oh that's right, it's because they have not been produced. Any truth to the rumor that all songs from that run have been remixed and sung in French?

I love the rawness of early Rush, though a lot of it sure bears the marks of their influences - Zepp, Sabbath. I do like the run from 2112 through "Exit Stage Left" the best. "Exit" was their high point, for me. They still sound amazing live.

I have been re-listening to the Dixie Dregs, inspired by Jimmy Herring's debt to them. Fantastic stuff!!!

Broon's Bane>The Trees>Xanadu from Exit is about my favorite 25 minutes of music ever.

Well, obviously I had to get in on this thread. I just love 2112. Leo and I have not missed Rush in NY since we started dating in 1978. One of the highlights was the anniversary show at Radio City. I'm sad they didn't play the beach this year. I scored 4th row last year.

I find it interesting that they say they were influenced by Led Zep and people compare them to Zep since they were formed in the same year--1968. I think that Rush is way more of a progressive sound like Yes than the Rock and Roll sound of Zep. And we've all already had the greatest drummer in the world debate. For me it's Neil Peart, hands down.

I busted out Bob Marley's Babylon By Bus last Sunday. It's been a long time since I last listened to it. What a kick. It's going to be a staple at my football tailgates this season.

I've been thinking the same thing about 2112. It's been years since I played that CD. I think you're on to something this weekend!
