I don't know if you still visit, Abby, but I want to correct some falacies told by our illustrious leader.  (Shame on you Fender!)   ;)  :P 

 

This board was invented and opened in Feb. of 2000.  It's over 13 Yrs old!  We were already a board when the 'Offending Administrator of the Other RUSH board' started to *&%$ with us. Some of us are people who were exiled from his board, and some were exiled from his board but I was a member HERE FIRST.  Lots of us were.  So we're not ALL rejects!  Like life, it takes all kinds, and we've settled in to our 'Biker Bar'-dom with the graciousness that is 'our' brand. (OOPS!  mentioned 'Brand' without Roody's permission....LOL) cow-loopymoopy.gif(Roody, or Moopsy is the moniker we know the 'other administrator' by)

You'll meet all kinds of folks here, some nice, some not so nice.  But, again, we've been here a LONG TIME, and lots of folks call this their home as far as RUSHboards or messageboards-in-general go, so if you wear your heart on your shoulder, better get a set of shoulder pads!  (a helmet wouldn't be a bad choice either!)

Anyway, welcome to the board, Hopefully you'll stay if, like you say, you like to discuss all things RUSH, and just life-stuff too.....Like my sig says, this place is for folks who ENJOY MUSIC!  music-ENJOY.gif

Also a good place for people that like to point out that the ENJOYED MUSIC of some people is really, really bad. Sometimes not even deserving to be called music at all.


Those who know what's best for us...

i.e. the music of Rush after Signals.

So I take it you didn't win the contest? Too bad, I hope it wasn't that creepy-looking guy. No, not you, Nick. tongue2.gif

That's the vast majority of Rush fans though and a major reason I get mad shit from all or most of my non-Rushian friends for being a fan. Then I drop the needle on some vinyl and let the boys work some majik...

But not me. I'm not creepy looking. By God I'm a handsome devil, and my wife even though she's past 50 is a hot chick.

 

Have I been drinking? But of course!

Nick, I know it wasn't you; you didn't enter the contest, remember? Wow, you are really drunk tonight!

That just makes my friends hate Rush even more!   :P   The usual comment is some variation of "The music is powerful but that singer ruins it."

All it proves is he has more Facebook friends and twitter followers than you do. And this was my point from day one. If you got to write a heartfelt essay and include pictures and artwork. If I got to do the same along with posting vids of me playing Rush with my various bands, etc, you or I could have won. This was a social media win for a radio conglomerate and a loss to real fans like you and I.

Welcome to the fray Abby!

Actually, it proves he was able to promote the radio station more. This whole thing was really about getting Q10-whatever's name out there.

I wish I'd found this earlier. Abby we haven't met, but I've been to several shows with your dad back in the day. Maybe a few more now that I'm back on the east coast...

Hey...where's Perry?
