Ok, look:


-there are people responding to this thread who have never even HEARD of Alex Lifeson, or even head a Rush song. Try to listen to some tunes and then spread your distaste. BTW. this is a U2 message board....people here are gonna like Rush???


-what are we trying to argue here? Who is "better"? There is no answer to that; it's all in the eye of the beholder. Sure, we could say that "technically" Lifeson is better, but "innovatively" Edge is more renowned.....so what? Both are great in their own ways and both are in bands that MADE THEM AS GUITARISTS AND THEY WOULD NEVER BE KNOWN IF NOT FOR THAT.

-Last EDge On Earth- you had me, then you lost me. I respect and enjoy Rush, and Lifeson in particular, but you come on a U2 forum and pick a fight about who's "better"...what do you expect here??? Everyone to say "LIFESON KICKS EDGE'S ASS!!!!"??????


Please.


As far as listening, maybe people would be better off checking out some Rush than secretly loving the new Coldplay but coming on here and saying "U2 RIPOFF!!!"


Bleh.

Was that band big in America or so? Cause I REALLY have NEVER heard of them. I still have no clue who we're talking about here.

I'd say they are well known in North America. They've been around forever (formed in 68, released their first album in 74) and have sold a bunch of albums. To me they made the kind of music your big brother and his friends liked, but you always found boring as hell. (That example might only work if you grew up in the 60s and 70s though )

Here's a link to their Wikipedia entry.

Ah thanks. That explains why I've never heard of them I guess. Around since 68,that's pretty damn impressive!
Everything on the wikipedia article is concerning America mostly, I guess they're pretty big there but they never really crossed the ocean.

Ok I kind of flew off the handle, in defending Leifeson because I think what the outcome of this thread would be before I even posted it. U2 fans don't know or listen to much Rush.

But if you did take the time to get into Rush, you would LOVE it. I think

That's what happened to me. Believe it or not, I didn't care for Rush as a youth because the classic rock station in my town d out the same 6 or 7 songs.

Then I saw a live concert from 80's and was BLOWN AWAY.

For those that want to get their hands dirty on some AWESOME guitar work by Lifeson, check out the following.....


YouTube - Rush - Xanadu 3-22-1994

It has nothing to do with being U2 fans or not. It's more the fact that NOT all of us live in the USA or Canada. I live in Europe and have never HEARD of that band. I know a lot of bands from the US and such, but I've never heard of this one. It has nothing to do with my U2 fandom.


I listened to that clip. It's not really my thing.
