In 1983, I saw Rush at The Summit. in 1984, I saw them at the Astrodome with Ozzy and 38 Special.
I was stone out of my mind and sang all the lyrics that never made a bit of sense. That was a great article that awoke some great memories.

Great read. I've always felt I should like Rush more than I actually do, but I have tremendous respect for them as a band, and Geddy Lee has always struck me as a cool dude.

“YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS AS A COLLECTOR; YOU HAVE TO BUY SOME OF THE WRONG WATCHES TO KNOW WHAT’S THE RIGHT WATCH FOR YOU.”

i've said something very similar to people outside the hobby who don't understand the buy/sell/trade carousel we all find ourselves on :clap:

This is true. Of course, I have a feeling Geddy Lee has a bit more room for error.

Cool article - he seems to be a true aficionado. I've always liked Rush.

Seems like a pretty low key dude. Contrast that with Meyer who seems like a total shit head.

Agree he really seems the aficionado. He’s narrowed his collecting to specific categories.

Probably one of my favorite bands. I got into them when I was just a kid, via MTV videos for the Grace Under Pressure and Power Windows albums. As I got older, I explored their back catalog. What a band. For some reason, I'm not the least bit surprised that Getty is into watches. :shrug:

The drummer, Neil Peart, is into bicycles and motorcycles. He wrote a book, Ghost Rider: Travels on the Healing Road, about his motorcycle journey throughout North and Central America. It's a quick and enjoyable read.

I love the comment about a date window on a Sub.

I didn’t realize Peart gave up drumming.

Yeah. He’s stated he can’t physically do it anymore. It’s a shame.

Wow. Blast from the past. Saw Rush a few times in the late '70's and early '80's. Always a great band, especially live. Cool that Lee is so into watches.
