Well spotted. He was also in the, erm, classic, Megaforce.

I'm going for Olivia's version of Xanadu.......

although Dave, Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich's "Legend of Xanadu" kills them all!!!

Zep's classic is not really prog but still beats Rush's 'effort' hands down (the lyrics sound like they have been written by a 14 year old)

I don't like Rush much at all but Stairway is one of the worst songs I've heard, in my opinion.

Zeppelin have far better songs they deserve to be recognised for but I digress.

For this, I pick rush
Classical music isn't dead, it's more alive than it's ever been. It's just not on MTV.

Now we're talking.
Thanks for posting that, I remember seeing that whip on Top of the Pops (ok, so I'm old).

Stairway to Heaven. Few songs beat it.

Rush fan here and Xanadu is one of my favorite Rush tunes so that gets my vote.

Stairway is a classic and legendary song, no question at all but definitely overplayed and overexposed. I never need to hear it again.

Stairway for me...........but then overall I like Zep more than Rush. Xanadu is a bit 'choppy' at times and imho STH flows better throughout the whole piece. Having said that I do like that Rush album.
