Young Drummer into Obtuse Time Signatures Cums in Pants!

July 24, 2008

It was a heady week for Rush fans everywhere.  They made their first American television appearance in some 30 years on, of all places, The Colbert Report.  This matters not one bit to most, but I was staying up all night listening to A Farewell to Kings with a death grip on the lyric sleeve when you were still shitting yourself.  Joking aside, I have a permanent soft spot for those Canadian lads no matter how cool I think I get.  Also, I’m glad I’m not alone in sucking at Rockband.  Enjoy.

How can a song sound so much like a John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band song from the motion picture Eddie and the Cruisers and still be so good? You’ll have to agree that is a pretty shitty pedigree. Oh, well. If you have to ask, then you’ll never know.

I denied this band for a long time. I don’t know why. I distrust the horns and violins because I am a stupid rock purist, or something like that. Tell me this performance is not real and moving.
