I like his first few albums best...he's such a huge extramusical icon to so many people that backlash can be magnified into rage (as with Beatles or whoever)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
-- Paul McCartney

I haven't heard Born In The USA or Born To Run.  

Both are great songs.

I'm not a big fan of The Boss but I do respect him as an artist and as a live performer but to say that he had no other songs besides Born in the USA is rediculous. 

And in the end the lunch you take is equal to the lunch you bake.

mr. Sun king coming together said
Rush. Sorry Von, but I hate them. Geddy Lee's voice has to be worst then Yoko's. Neil Peart is amazing, but Rush sucks.

  

I disagree with this one. Admittedly a lot of their songs are unlistenable, but they’ve got some pretty great music such as Afterimage and Mystic Rhythms, and I like the lyrics of The Spirit of Radio. Their album 2112 has a pretty cool message, too.

Stop saying that!!!!!!!!! You have a lot of interesting things to say and I wanna hear 'em. *blockades corner*

I've only ever heard one Rush song and I wasn't especially impressed. Too screechy.

Yeah, in the group’s earlier years Geddy Lee did a lot of that screeching stuff with his voice, which he shouldn’t have done because it damaged his voice pretty badly after a few years. But the good thing is that once he could no longer use his upper range, he began to sing in his lower vocal range which sounds really cool. 

Also I feel like Alex’s guitar playing isn’t really recognized as good just because his style is very different from other guitarists. And as for Geddy’s bass playing, it’s pretty impressive at times

And like mr. Sun king coming together said, Neil Peart is really amazing. He’s no Ringo, but he is really talented.

Oh, I suppose. I just usually assume that every citizen of Forumpool would be better off without hearing what I have to say most of the time...

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8If we all assumed that, no one would ever say anything. I like hearing what you have to say.

As for all those names... I don't know who any of them are, but...

Yes, you should post more, Silver! And I'm not just saying that since your thread revival almost counts as a proxy-reply (8 years after the fact!) from myself to Mr. SKCT (who incidentally showed up here last week!). Nice to see a tiny bit of support.

(Fwiw, I never bought a new Rush album released after 1985, and probably haven't listened to the ones I own since, like, 2012. Geddy Lee's screech was one of their defining aspects, and the band wasn't quite the same to me after it was phased out.)

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Yes, I do agree it was pretty iconic to the sound of the group’s music, and it was quite a shame when he lost the ability to sing in that range, but his lower range is also pretty great. (I cannot believe that Mr. SKCT would say that Geddy’s voice is worse than Yoko Ono’s, that just isn’t true, no offense to him or Yoko though.)
