    I find Rush and Van Halen to be vastly different styles of rock music, but I noticed there is a significant overlap between the likes of Rush and Van Halen. Lots of Rush fans tend to include Van Halen as one of their favorite rock bands and vice versa.
    How would you explain that? Isn't it surprising to you?

    some people aren't tied to one genre of music. They just like good music. Speaking for myself, I love British Invasion, '60s pop, Motown, Country-Rock, whatever you want to call Led Zeppelin, '70s pop, '70s album rock, disco, punk, mild prog rock, '80s pop, '80s rock, country, etc.

    Not really. Good music is good music.

    My three favorite bands sound absolutely nothing like each other (VH, Rush, Genesis), But I've spent hundreds to see and hear them them all.

    They're both hard rock.

    They're both really good.

    The end.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    VH and Rush had some of the greatest musicians in the history of rock & roll. I'd like to think that Eddie and Neil are jamming together right now up in heaven.
