    Thought it might stir up some interest: GeddyLee.net

    Also gave this site a little plug since there does seem to be some VH interest there.

    I've never been a huge Rush fan, but it is interesting to see how other people view Van Halen. It is pretty obvious some of those people have never heard Fair Warning. But, In All fairness I've never heard Rush's "Fair Warning" either.

    [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] You're a good man BigBadBrian!

    Rush does kick ass! They've been thru alot of tradegy (sp?) lately and after 5+ years have released a new album.

    Van Halen has been thru nothing compared to them and we are approaching 4 1/2 years with no new material. And worse than that they don't even keep their fans informed. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    I post on rare occasions at Rush's board, and most of the time, it has to do with VH--GO FIGURE!! [img]graemlins/yell.gif[/img]

    I haven't seen these particular guys too much at the Rush board, but a few have thanked me for updates on VH.

    I can't believe these guys slag Ed's "style" of playing as "simple" or having a "classical" influence (so fucking what?) like it's easy to do [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img]

    Alex is a great player in his own right, but at least a few of 'em realize it's apples & oranges.

    They were probably picked on in high school, and prob'ly still play Dungeons & Dragons! [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img]

    I love RUSH, but some of the people at RUSH boards are full of themselves. Hopefully, I am not one of them. An air of self-imposed superiority seems to dominate some of these guys. They are way too impressed with themselves.

    A lot of Starbucks-swilling pseudo-intellectuals are that way!

    I post under the same name on Tri-Net, your right, there allot of people on that board that seem to really love themselves!

    It's allot more friendly then this place, but there allot of people that seem to like Rush just because it makes them feel like there as smart as they think ther are.

    They slam One Little Victory because they think it's "beneath" Rush to play it? What the hell does that even mean. It's probably one of the best singles Rush has released in the last 15 years at least.

    I was actually a huge Rush fan before I got into Van Halen in '82. Really you can't compare the bands' because there just 2 completely different approaches. The comments I read over at geddylee.net are not restricted to Rush fans. There are just a lot people out there who dismiss Van Halen and Ed's playing as bafoonery! They've never taking it seriously I feel mainly because of the carnival atmosphere that Dave gave the band in the early days.
