JaggerFan, allow me to respond to you
I am not a drummer who never made it and I am a musician. Well, I don't know how much musical talent I possess, but play a mean guitar every now and again.
My band was very successful in the Cleveland Ohio area for many years... we split as we got older and did the job/family thing but we still do the occasional gig when we feel like having fun. As a matter of fact we will be playing with The Queers in Akron Ohio in April.
As a band we released 3 albums, NEVER on our dime. I have gone on to work in radio and have played/promoted and lived/loved rock-n-roll all my life with very few regrets. I would say I have done more in the music business than most, and not as much as many BUT I am happy.
I do concede that I can’t be a drummer. No rhythm.
My hate for Rush is based on that fact that they are, as I said before, sexless, soulless and boring.
I like my rock-n-roll to make me want to dance and drink and get laid.
Rush have NEVER done that for me.
I have no real hostility, these are just on-line rants. Believe me I am relaxed as hell today. Stoned and hangin' out in my underwear while surfing the web and watching TV... its almost heaven. To bad EVERY day can't be like this
And JaggerFan, you are right about one thing...
I probably do need counseling, not because I hate a boring, turd of a band like Rush, but for many other reasons
