More old-school bands should do this. In celebration of thirty years together, Rush has come out with Feedback, an EP of cover tunes, focusing on the songs they were insprired by back in the Sixties when they were first learning rock and roll. For those of you who know or care, Rush is one of those love/hate bands; a progressive-rock power trio, they are worshipped by their fans for their fantastic musicianship, and belitted by their critics for being ponderous and pretentious. Count me as a fan. Who wouldn't want to hear Geddy Lee sing Summertime Blues?
In honor of their anniversary, here's a picture of Neil Peart with his drum kit (click for full glory).
