“Rush” to Judgment?

Rush. Canada’s beloved power trio. The standard bearer of Prog Rock. Staples of terrestrial classic rock radio stations for decades. Geddy Lee, Neal Peart, and the blonde guy on guitar (Alex Lifeson). You all know Rush. You always have. Question is…what did you think of Rush? Be honest. When you were a high school kid, […]
