As we know, us Rushfans are a unique group of people with excellent taste in music. Our taste is quite refined and possibly quite picky about what we allow into our ears. It's probable that the other bands we admire are very good. For some of us it may be extremely rare to happen across something new that we REALLY like. So when it does happen, it's exciting!

Post 'em here.... what else fits our bill?

(It took me until about the 6th or 7th show on the RTB tour to appreciate Primus, love 'em now!)

Yesterday I was introduced to the music of Coheed and Cambria, and let me tell you, I am IMPRESSED! Very Dream Theater-ish...

Also if you're an old fart like me you like Max Webster who toured with Rush in the 70's.

Well, if you're going to include Geddy Lee's solo project.......how about:

Alex Lifeson: Victor
Neil Peart: Burning For Buddy

Has anyone seen either of these played "live". Are there any recordings / DVDs etc....?

See I didn't care for Victor, It was missing something and some parts out it were a little bit silly but, thats Alex I guess.

WY Man says:

There was a '70s group named "Lone Star" who had an album called, "Firing on all Six," that sounded very much like Rush, ca. Moving Pictures. There were some identical synth effects as on Moving Pictures, especially in Tom Sawyer, the synth part just preceeding "A modern day warrior, mean, mean pride." It is the EXACT same synth as in the Lone Star song "Ballad of Crafty Jack," BUT, the Lone Star album "Firing on all Six" was recorded in 1976, five years earlier than Moving Pictures. I'm quite sure that Geddy got some of his sound from Lone Star.

First heard Rush as an impressionable 16 year old back in 1976. It was a prog rock love affair that has endured ever since.

For me there have only been two bands since, Dream Theater in the 90's and more lately Haken a little known London based prog outfit who are destined for bigger things. www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyFQAHc8oao&feature=related

I first saw Rush on the "Farewell to Kings" tour in 1978 at the Cornwall, Ontario Civic Center. Max Webster opened for Rush and blew me away -- I've been a fan ever since.

By the way, we were sitting in the second row, center...it was awesome.
