    Rush. I don't like them that much but they had talent.

    David grohl is a great drummer. He still isn't worthy to carry Peart's drumsticks.

    Dude, the sheer number of good songs RUSH wrote puts them in another class. Nirvana could never have kept up.

    Rush were R&R nerds.

    Nirvina were R&R punks.


    Very hard to compare the two.

    Rush. They were to me what the Beatles were to many aspiring young musicians. Still listen to them. Ran oot and bought Clockwork Angels the day it was released like I did oh so long ago.

    I love Rush. Alex Lifeson is one of the best guitarists ever, as is Geddy about the best bassist also. Not to mention Peart, as a drummer and lyricist. :pimp:

    I have never heard Dave Grohl play anything on the drums that an average high schooler couldn't play. I get that he was just playing to the style of the music, but it was still nothing special at all.
