    Default RUSH Video . . .

    I saw the new Rush boxed set coming out (or maybe it's out). It's like 4 DVD's full of live material.

    While I understand what a disaster R Daniels is/was for the band . . . is he at the helm of Rush? They keep turning out fan-friendly, kick-ass stuff. It seems like someone over there understands the market and their fans.

    Yeah, I never quite got why RD kicks ass with Rush and sucked with VH. Very mysterious, indeed.

    Ray is obviously being kept at arm's length if Rush is still going strong today. BTW, there's a fairly grande thread dedicated to Rush here.....

    Ray Daniels sucks ass. Rush could have been much bigger with a real manager. They were selling 500,000 when they should have been topping the million mark time and time again. I've read this over the years. I don't have a source, but it sounds about right. Rush has talented musicians, and probably the best drummer ever. They're huge, but they could have been huge-er!

    I donno, Rush is quite big as they are. I don't see them becoming mainstream ala U2 - it's not them. Odd time signatures, lyrics inspired by Ayn Rand, very high-pitched voice, silk kimonos, songs named after science projects ("Chemistry").

    They did play for 60,000 people in Rio, but I don't see them as serious competition to Britney and Mariah Carey.

    I remembered where I heard it...it was from Sam and his unauthorized bio...he said Rush should have been the Canadian Led Zep. I just like saying Ray Daniels sucks ass.

    Because it's not VH related and there's another Rush thread going in the music forum, I'll close this one.

    BTW, I watched a bit of a Rush video on VH-1, while the music was outstanding, the visual aspect of the show was pretty boring......but damn, talk about musicians
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett
