    Randy Johnson given a Rush replica drum set on the field tonight by the Diamondbacks organization as they retired his number.

    Pretty cool. His reaction was great.

    Yes I heard about this, I was looking for a picture of this on the net. That's real nice he's a big fan of the band and actually plays drums. As the story goes it's a R30 kit....which Randy ordered one back in the day through a Guitar Center in PHX. He cancelled the order and the kit was put on display in the store behind barriers. It didn't take long to sell, they were only 15 made. If the D-Backs bought this kit it probably cost them a pretty high penny.

    For the past few days, I've pulled Grace Under Pressure from the dust bin and have been jamming hard to it. The album came out when I was in grade 11 and I rocked it back then... but have forgotten about it to some degree.

    In particular, Afterimage.

    I read it.

    I feel really good for Rush now. For decades... very underrated. Now it seems as if more people have figured out what they have been offering and appreciate them. 40 years to do so, but they finally got it!

    John Rutsey looks as if he's had enough of the band right here....

    Possibly the last photo ever taken of him with the band.

    Nice visuals here on the charting of the history of the band RUSH.....

    http://lifeismusic.me/2015/10/22/the-history-of-rush-in-chart-form/

    image

    Here one can look at the band's career into 3 segments of...
    Pre-prime....the first 2 albums the band appears to be trying to find their legs in the music business.
    Prime....the mid 70's-80's they started to release one dazzling album after another while going on months long tours year after. They played everywhere sometimes twice.
    Post-prime...the mid 80's the releases slowed down to 3-5 years. The releases went from good to me the awful S&A. I just don't get that album.
