Rush's fans and their critics can make use of it equally. Take actor Jack Black,
interviewed in Beyond the Lighted Stage, who clearly believes that his love of
Rush is grounded on something more than just his opinion. With that half-crazed I
-am-so-sure-of-this look in his eye, he claims there are objective, scientific
measures, that prove how great Rush is. If you analyzed a spectral diagram of
Neil Peart's drumming, he says in the interview, you'd probably find that it
deviates from perfect ...

Music doesn't have to be hard to play or complicated to be good. I love the
complex musicianship of bands like Rush, Yes, and Steely Dan, who are all
amazing performers and musicians. But where would the world be without simple
songs like John Lennon's “Imagine” or “One” by U2? Throughout this book I say
that a good song is a good song, no matter who wrote it, what genre it is in, or
who performed it. I even like tunes from Huey Lewis and the News and Cyndi
Lauper, who are ...

... seen by fans of bands like Rush as fakery. Such fans expect synthesizers to be
deployed in very particular ways to qualify as acceptable musicianship. From
1977 to 1984, when Geddy Lee was actually playing chords and melodic figures
on synthesizers with his own fingers, fans generally accepted the instrument's
role in Rush's music. From 1985 to 1991, when Lee began using pre- sequenced
patterns, the use of synthesizers became a more contentious matter among fans.

The show's skyrocketing popularity soon enabled him to quit his shipyard job for
a full-time radio career.” Radio announcers like Cactus Jack provided the link
between the local music scene and the big-time country music industry that was
emerging in the 1940s. By playing his treasured Bob Wills records “for breakfast,
dinner, and supper,” Cactus Jack helped build a West Coast market for
professional western swing bands from Oklahoma and Texas. Beginning in 1943,

Madness: This is one of only two ska bands admired by people who hate ska (the
other being the Specials, who are overrated). Nobody disputes this admiration. “
Our House” was a pretty great single, but it's nobody's favorite song; nobody
seems to dispute that assertion, either. 8. Triumph: Always associated with Rush
and/or the nation of Canada, but not as good as either. 7. ToneLōc: Hardly
anyone takes ToneLōc seriously, except for frivolous pop historians who like to
credit him for ...

But there have been times when we have seen that broad and uncouth mouth
hurl forth words so sharp andhard-hitting, they were worthy of the orator of old
who was said " to eat swords and iron," while again we have seen it radiant with
good-humor, looking absolutely handsome, and pouring forth tones which called
right up before you the very sunny-side of life. His eyes were powerful. They were
not deep set. They did not lower upon his enemy from cavernous depths like
