Neil Peart clowns on anybody who ever sat behind a drum kit.

Geddy Lee is a bass god and has the greatest voice ever.

Alex Lifeson is simply a virtuoso.

I just saw Rush in concert and was awestruck by the performance. I was like a deer starting into headlights at the entire show.

For those of you who havent heard of Rush or don't know...check these songs out

Cygnus x-1
What You're Doing
The Trees
natural science
spirit of radio...


those songs will get you started on the path to musical enlightenment.

shout out to Maynard.

I'm a fan of Rush, but sorry, no, you can't say any single band is the greatest band ever. Music is a very individual thing, and you're only one person with the opinion that Rush is the greatest band in the world. Others may be in agreement, but nonetheless, such a statement is pompous and ignorant. Sorry to be blunt.

ugh, they leave a horrible taste in my mouth...it is a matter of taste after all.

and to me, they taste like a toadstool-sauerkraut-and cod oil sandwich.

The greatest band ever had to be the rubber band.
If you think about it, you will come to realize that it is more useful than any musical band will ever be, and it has accomplished more.

the drummer of Rush is one of the best of all times.

and this is not only my opinion,I think Danny Carey from TOOL thinks the same about him.
