I just found out that @craigmaloney passed away this morning after a two year battle with cancer.

Back when I first got into Linux your local LUG was where you went to hone your skills and meet new friends. That was over 20 years ago. We bonded over Linux and heavy metal.

A bunch of us visited him a few months ago and we decided to do a weekly listening party of every #rush album and had folks join in. I know it meant a lot to him. Rest in peace friend.

: – Moving Pictures (1981). Withstanding the prog backlash of the early 80s, Rush reinvented their sound with (relatively) concise songs, keyboard layering, and hooks irresistible to FM radio. "Tom Sawyer," "Red Barchetta" and "Limelight" brimmed with new energy, as Geddy Lee's vocals matured, Alex Lifeson's guitar grew concise, and Neil Peart's drumming reached its apex. For the prog diehards, Side 2 was a cinematic tour-de-force.

@gogmagog I'm betting whatever did win is something nobody spins today. Now I'm curious....

Great_Albums, avatar

@gogmagog Oooh... I'm a big Kraftwerk as well, so that's a double snub. At least the Police winning isn't embarrassing.

@TheMetalDog It's what they said from the beginning and people still won't let it go.

Yes, and after reading "My Effing Life", I understand why that is so at a deeper level.

With Neil Peart they became Canada's most legendary rock group. Lifeson and Lee (author of a new memoir, "My Effin' Life") talk about their particular blend of musicianship; how tragedy upended the band; and what might constitute Rush's next chapter.

@TheMetalDog Will Paul let them play "Chicken Pot Pie?"

So that you know... the last time I thought about this earworm was... last night during dinner.

'Power Windows': Rush Expand Their Sound
One of Rush’s richest and deepest albums, 'Power Windows' is full of details that reward multiple listens.

@TheMetalDog ok so my first Rush album was Grace Under Pressure, and its still my favourite so that biases me a bit. But my favourite stretch is Signals>P/G>PW>HYF>Presto>RtB.

@robneppell @futurebird

Geddy: I'm a vampire, no seriously!

Alex: does this outfit make me look like Nigel Tufnel and if so is that a bad thing?

Neil: Anyone seen my bike helmet, wait did we have a photo shoot? That was today?

Happy 70th birthday to of .

Birthday greetings along with some personal reflections which are always close at hand when it comes to this band.
So much of my love of music began with Rush.

"Living in the limelight, the universal dream
For those who wish to seem
Those who wish to be, must put aside the alienation
Get on with the fascination
The real relation, the underlying theme"
