It's from My Favourite Headache and it's shit LOL!

Geddy's solo album shows he was the main reason for the decline in Rush.

They are?


Someone who claims to have seen them in Leeds on the PeW tour - not me even though I did - says "On the morning of the concert, I was pumping gas at a part-time job I had during high school." Yes. Right, In the UK we don't "Pump Gas" and "High School"? You mean a bog standard comp at best in Leeds. There's nowt high in Leeds - apart from the smell of its residents DIRTY LEEDS!!!!

"Through all the years Peart was in Rush, Lee never wrote a lyric" - don't think that's right. Tears. But you can't trust the Guardian.

Decided to give Ged's solo album another go recently. It was even more dire than I remembered.
Also revisited Victor and, whilst much better, not as great as I recalled it being.
Proof that the sum was greater than the parts I think.

Different strings too. Still an excellent article though  from an excellent publication, voted the most trustworthy newsaper in the UK just a few weeks ago. May lose that crown now though 😉


And Nick don't think that Leeds could possibly be in the UK. Is there an Amrrican version?

The new songs are an abomination
