To Do List: Rush 9/17/07
Canada's finest power trio (no, not Triumph, for God's sake) saunters into the fabled Madison Square Garden in a couple weeks to regale us with tunes from their triumphant new Snakes and Arrows record, easily the best album they've put out since the halcyon days of 1982, when men wore mullets and "Tom Sawyer" was the defacto suburban national anthem. Drummer Neil Peart has bounced back, incredibly, from almost unspeakable loss to do some of his finest work and regain his slot as Best Rock Drummer Ever (that's right - ahead of Bonham, Moon, or anybody), Alex Lifeson is an axe wizard, and Geddy Lee is one of the most impossibly talented (not to mention coordinated) musicians ever, as he sings and plays bass and keyboards, oftentimes with different melodies, all at the same time. Shocking. To visit the bands website and hear their excellent new single,"Far Cry", feel free to click here.
