RUSH fans

The RUSH fan is unlike any other music fan I’ve ever encountered.  It’s almost like they live in a musical vacuum.  They love this band and there is no other band that compares.  Most arena shows I go to fans will wear a t-shirt that relates to the band they’re going to see.  You’re going […]

Rock Hall Class of 2013

Donna Summer, Public Enemy and Rush are among the artists inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  “Who are those other two said fans of any one of those?” so jokes Seth Meyer on last week’s Saturday Night Live Weekend Update and he’s kind of right. Much like the music scene today, the […]

Once again as inspired by My Morning Jacket’s “Wordless Chorus“, here are the nominees and my […]

Making the Brand

Spin Magazine last week published an article listing their 40 greatest band names of all time.  I agree with most of the list (Motörhead is #1) but I’m not sure why the stopped at 40. So let’s continue the list.  Here are the ten band names I would add in alphabetical order. 1) Arcade Fire […]

Rush Interview

Sure I used to understand why Rush was not cool  enough to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  Their music could sometimes seem overblown and cold and the lyrics sometimes seemed a little pretentious (i.e. “Trees” could have been a Tenacious D song) but enough is enough.  If Guns N’ Rose can […]

New Music Tuesday
