    Rush were never hard rock or progressive rock. They belong to a special genre called geek rock. Also included in that category are Weezer and the Barenaked Ladies. Look it up.

    Makes me think of a recent quote by Chrissy Hynde of the Pretenders: "Almost ALL guys in rock bands are pussy's"...

    My band back in the late 70s played tons of Rush. Saw them in a small theater back east on the Farewell to Kings tour. A few arena shows since. I break them into 4 periods.

    Early stuff prior to commercial success - Caress of Steel being my fave.
    Late 70s early 80s mass success - Permanent Waves.
    The keyboard years - Power Windows.
    Back to basics - Clockwork Angels.
