    Neil Peart was an exceptional songwriter/lyricist. My favorite Rush tune is Vital Signs from Moving Pictures. An excerpt:

    Unstable condition–
    a symptom of life,
    in mental and environmental change,
    atmospheric disturbance,
    the feverish flux
    of human interface and interchange.

    The impulse is pure.
    Sometimes our circuits get shorted
    by external interference.
    Signals get crossed
    and the balance distorted
    by internal incoherence.

    I mean, b e a u t i f u l g e n i u s, p u r e b r i l l i a n c e!

    My old man answered some call-in radio trivia to win tickets to a Rush concert while I was in high school. I had only ever heard Tom Sawyer at the time, but I went with him. I think it was the snakes and arrows tour.

    They blew me away live. Each a true master of their instrument. They were definitely a little weird, especially for an early high school kid. But they were so good, it didn't matter.

    Rush has long been my favorite band. I know I am in the minority, but I’d take Peart over Lennon every day of the week if given the choice. They are arguably the most versatile rock band ever with Peart being fairly consistently the best drummer ever. Many an accomplished drummer in today’s have been quoted saying they wouldn’t even attempt to reproduce some of rush’s songs due to the complexity of the drumming.
