    Holy crap! At first I didn't know what you were talking about so I Googled "Headlong Flight" and saw the link to the song on the Rolling Stone website of all places (if you know the history between Rush and Rolling Stone Magazine you'll realize the irony of it). Wow, the boys still have it. I can't wait for the new album to come out. I really enjoyed BU2B and Caravan also. If these three songs are any indication, this next album is going to be epic! It's Christmas in April for me. I'm totally amped right now.

    Is this what you're talking about





    The funny thing is, I've been a Rush fan since '79, and, it wasn't until maybe a year ago, that I noticed Geddy's AWESOMENESS.
    (I guess that deity behind the drums overshadowed him)
    Man, can that guy shred a bass!

    Do include Snakes and Arrows. You are really missing something if you haven't given "The Main Monkey Business" a listen.

    Thanks for the headz-up in the new album.

    All three of these are are extremely talented. Neil has a larger than life persona on the drums and does overshadow his cohorts but Getty is awesome. Saw them with Primus many moons ago and him and Les Claypool did a dueling basses thing that had my jaw on the floor.

    It seems to me that Geddy is highlighted a little bit more recently. I don't know if you've seen the Time Machine tour video, but Geddy's bass playing definitely seems a little more upfront on that release. I also noticed that on the tour. He's always been great, and it doesn't seem to me that any of the trio overshadow each other, but he's just a little more prominent lately (this year).

    That would have been amazing to see!

    If this song is an indicaton of the disk, i can't wait. They still sound amazing.

    I believe that each has his own element and together they complement and balance each other. This is probably why they have been able to keep it going for so long.

    For as out forward and in depth in his talent as Neil Peart is on the drums, he is very reserved in interviews and, likely his every day personality. Geddy Lee seems to have a more forward personality and a broader range of talents. Alex Lifeson is incredible on guitar and certainly adds an element of humor to the group and seems to fall somewhere in between Geddy and Neil in his outgoingness.

    Rush is one of my three choices for music to have on a desert island... they do more as a threesome than many groups do asa quintet. Neil Pert is simply the best drummer to pick up the sticks. Geddy ain't to shabby either. I don't think Rush would ever be as good if any of the three were to hang it up.

    Totally agree. Geddy Lee is an awesome bassist, and the things Alex Lifeson does on guitar to fill what would be 'gaps' in many three-man bands are pretty incredible. And you're right -- Neil Peart? Simply spectacular. And don't forget -- he writes great lyrics too.

    Was checking out Netflix new releases and found "Classic Albums: Rush: 2112 & Moving Pictures" is on demand:

    I'm 10 minutes in and it's interesting.
