It's alright - quite simplified from the Rush version.

I'm surprised at how few bands cover Rush, or maybe it's just me. The only cover I have in my music collection is Dream Theater doing YYZ (on the complete Majesty Demos), and even that was recorded way back in 1985-1986.

Part of the reason for other bands' supposed reluctance for covering Rush may be Rush's reaction to this album. Reportedly they weren't too happy to be a subject of such an album, because they viewed tributes as some kind of obituaries for dead bands.

Or maybe it was just the hideous cover, I don't know.

Anthrax have done a cover this year "Anthem", Primus have done "La Villa Strangiatio", Dream Theater have done 3 or four, and there is 2 covers cd "Working Man". Mike Portnoy have done with his band a hour set of Rush covers on DVD. There's  not a lot of coverr of them, the reason is unknown to me.

Perhaps Rush music is too complex to do any sort of justice for it ??

A few more that show up within my collection.

Skid Row covers What You're Doing on their B-Sides Ourselves EP.
Poverty's No Crime covered Distant Early Warning on One In A Million.
The Bad Plus covered Tom Sawyer on Prog.

My guess would be that the reason is Rush's music is quite demanding to play, especially the drums/percussion. A lot of bands wouldn't want to make asses of themselves. Lol. I think for years if you could Handle drumming La Villa Strangiato
It was considered the bench mark of drumming period. Is tough man.

I like the Poverty's No Crime version. Also, Finnish Prog/metal band Wintersun covered YYZ for a show they did when I saw them in Toronto. It wasn't bad, but they didn't play the whole thing? Thought that was weird.

Yeah it's the former alright, definitely


Right you are.

'Spirit Of The Radio' sounds like it would come from a very 'special' person if you catch my drift.
Doesn't have a nice flow it. Sounds awkward. ;)

There's also Spirit of Radio, told on Exit...Stage Left
My remastered CD copy of Exit...Stage Left says "The Spirit of Radio", so I guess that misprint has been corrected on later releases.

That makes sense. Heck, even Rush has trouble playing their music sometimes.

yeah, they even say it's really hard to play YYZ live, while Neil also says the little solo in Tom Sawyer is hard, and it makes him feel good every time he plays it right

I can't remember if I've posted this here on the prog archives forums:

Me behind the kit of Neil's 'Chromey' kit. I think he used this kit from Fly By Night thru A Farewell To Kings, didn't he?



I apologize if I've posted it before.

It's not a replica, it's Neil's old kit.

A guy in Chicago owns it now. I had that pic taken at Vic's Drum Shop in Chicago for a small fee, the money going to a charity (supporting someone with cancer, I think). For a bit more they'd let you actually play the kit, but I'm no drummer so I just had my pic taken Smile
