    It would be neat to see a decent musical act live when they aren't 20+ years past their prime.

    I had a chance to see Rush live in 2010 and passed it up, but I heard that Geddy Lee's voice (which was never great to begin with) is now completely shot and he's sick to death of singing the classics like Limelight and The Spirit of Radio. He was mostly mumbling those songs by that point.

    That performance is from 1988, they were still in their prime and it shows. I've been listening to a shitload of 80s era Rush lately, tons of undiscovered gems that haven't been played to death on classic rock radio (although there's still songs like Subdivisions which I've heard 80 million times).

    Even though I listened to their discography a long while back I could definitely go through most of it again and it'd be fresh. Can't blame the guy for hating on those songs it must feel like purgatory to perform the same few minute piece over and over again your entire life.

    Rush has at least 20~ really good songs that could be on radio rotation but their music doesn't really fit the "widest possible audience" algorithms that the US radio monopolies use to determine what to play anymore. They have tons of data on this and know the lowest common denominator classic rock hits (and nothing but those) generates maximum listeners, since the same stations are duplicated throughout the country now (the savings from this is way more that catering to local trends). It makes bands like Rush that are still kind of around go insane because all people know are their 3-5 most popular songs with zero chance of anything else getting played.

    Their WHOLE discography? You must be one of the very few people left on Earth who know that they wrote songs after 1982. I've never met anyone who's even heard of the Power Windows or Grace Under Pressure albums but they all know Tom Sawyer (though not what album it's from).

    This is another song that could easily make the rounds again if there was such a thing as a deep cuts 80s station.

    Yep Arthur and I both listened to the entire discography, I think I sent him a copy of actual CD's for it!

    Both of these should be on the regular classic rock rotation
