You're not reading what I'm saying.

It IS a FACT that U2 HAVE sold out and Rush HAVE NOT. And it IS a FACT that all three members of Rush are better musicians than U2 are, technically speaking - ANY musician can tell you that. Whereas, it's just my OPINION if I think Rush is the greatest band ever.

Get it?

So what? That's not the issue here.

Hogwash. Rush arguably invented the progressive hard rock genre in the mid 70s. Not to mention Alex's innovative utilization of suspended chords/arpeggios, etc., etc.

This is possibly the silliest thing I've read on Interference. I'm a musician who's seen both bands live, and Rush was beyond terrible live. Technicality is completely irrelevant to making good art, whether it's music or otherwise. In addition to that, ALL art ends up coming down to personal preference and connection. All of these comparisons are completely pointless and useless, as one person's treasure is another's trash.

I've never seen them live, but I did see the Rush "30" dvd and they were very good, especially the drummer. The drum solo in that performance in Germany was incredible.
