I love Rush. Thanks. (I'm I the only one who comments on this blog?) Have a good one.

Well you are consistent. The same people I know who love Yes also love Rush. Like Steve Miller, Rush is a band I could never understand despite many people over the years telling me to listen to them again, or to a certain song, or album, or whatever. I have tried, but just don't get it. Maybe with a different singer I could, but you have to really like that guy's voice to listen to more than :30 of him. Just writing this puts that voice in my head, thanks a lot.

Am I dreaming or was Rush on Colbert Report recently to promote a reunion tour or something?

I would never push anyone to listen to Rush if they didn't immediately warm to them. As you suggest, they're a band you either "get" or you don't. That said, Geddy hasn't really sang with that shrieky yelp voice since the late `70s.

Personally speaking, I don't think Geddy's voice (even at it's most shrill) is anywhere near as grating as, say, Patti Smith's or Bob Dylan's.

And yes, Rush were on the Colbert Report earlier this year. And they played "Tom Sawyer" from the MOVING PICTURES album. They weren't promoting a reunion tour. They've never really broken up, but Neil Peart went on an extended hiatus following the deaths of his wife and his daughtr within the course of a single year.

I think any Rush and Neil Peart fan would appreciate this movie, Adventures of Power. Being a huge Rush fan myself, when I happened upon this movie at a film festival, I couldn't get enough of it! I mean who hasn't sat in their living room air drumming to their favorite Rush songs?
