Not A Rush Fan

   During the election melee I was accused of listening to Rush all the time and forming opinions not based on what I think, but instead by words streaming from my radio.
   While working at the new place, I was, in fact, listening to the radio when 'Rush' happened to come on.  I decided to really listen and give an honest appraisal of what I thought.
   I listened through the whiny voice inflections.  Lots and lots of words that just never went anywhere.  In the beginning you think it's going to say something but really never does.  I'm not sure why there's been so much staying power; I didn't hear a single thing that made sense to me, out of what little I could understand.
   Geddy Lee is WAY over-rated.

Speaking as an occasional Rush Listener. I do find him entertaining and at times he drones on ad nausem.

At his best he has a gift for satire and is self deprecating in his humor.

I find it fascinating that the MSM provides ongoing free publicity for him.

What are you talking about? I haven't heard Geddy Lee mentioned in the MSM ever. The songs need a chorus. I know they are capable because Bob and Doug McKenzie hired him for their novelty single
