My band wants to do a Rush cover song....and the lead vocalist has the
range! Anyhow since we are pretty much a classic rock dance band, what song
would be good for us to cover?
Gawd... I was hoping I wasn't the only one that was going to suggest
this. It's only the best Rush song ever. And if the original poster
can't make up his mind, well, you know what they say... (see sig)
It's a good tune, but I'd never call it the "best Rush song ever". Their
early stuff was much tastier, IMO. They lost that "edge" to their sound, as
early as A Farewell to Kings. Their music got almost techno, and far from
the rock sound they had. A lot of friends, my age, feel the same way.
Every year, there's a rumor that Rush is doing a 2112 tour. Only the early
stuff. Gets everyone worked up and then, no. Only the latest album, and a
handful of the classics. I'd much rather see them do a show with nothing
No offense, I know you're a Rush fan and all, but they lost my interest
(save for a few songs here and there), almost 30 years ago.
