Default Re: Neil Peart

When it comes to RUSH, im not a fan of all of their music, but the drumming is superb. My least favorite thing about rush is definitely the voice and lyrics! Geddy lee is a talented bassist, but his voice makes me cringe, like in "Fly by Night". Also the lyrics... i heard that peart writes the lyrics for most songs, dont know if that's totally true or not, but the lyrcis just don't make any sense to me. Look at "spirit of the radio" for example when geddy sings "echo of the sound of salesmen"..............what the hell does that mean? The lyrics are funny and all because sometimes they can be incredibly odd and sometimes stupid, but still, i do think rush is a great band. Quite possibly the greatest Canadian Band in terms of record sales.
