Dave Grohl's introduction of Rush explained to me why I should have cared …. but having the progressive rock genre occupy most of my focus since the early 70s, Rush is one of the "epic" bands that never connected with me. Neil Pert has always been a drummer of the ages, and they are one of the few original bands of that era that live on and still have amazing technical chops and tightness (on par with the best of Crimson and vintage Yes), but damn…. it's always been Geddy's voice that makes my ears bleed. laugh Good for them and their fans that the R&R Hall of Fame gave them the recognition. Blah. Blah. Blah.
