Why the Rush?

Enjoying my morning coffee in the company of 3 great musicians and 3 great watches (this is WC after all). Any other Rush Fans here? What a band, what a legacy 🔥❤️✨

I sometimes don’t know if a day is really going to get off the ground until Neil’s drumsticks make first contact at the start of “Limelight.”

Am I one of those fans who has memorized all the lyrics to “By-Tor and the Snowdog?” I am not, but I love Rush and have huge respect for the guys and their talent. The “Beyond the Lighted Stage“ documentary is one of the best music documentaries I’ve seen.

And nice Mr. Jones!

Spirit of Radio,Available Light,Roll the bones...Classics.

Geddy Lee is one of the best rock bassists around.

❤️Dragon Ball Z!

Three truly amazingly talented musicians.  RIP the Professor---

Huge Rush fan here. I'll never forget the day I first heard 2112.

Huge Rush fan here! I saw them in '81 and '83 in concert. They are simply amazing live. Fly by Night was the album that first got me interested, as I am a huge Tolkien fan.

Time stand still —
I’m not looking back —
But I want to look around me now
See more of the people
And the places that surround me now

Any ties to the band or its music for these or other watches?

Oh Man, I love Rush!  I only saw them live once, but what a show.  It was at the Palladium in New York and Motorhead was the opening act.  I was in the second row and probably close enough to touch Geddy Lee if I wanted.  They were amazing and that was many moons ago.  I was around 18 and I'm 58 now.

Yeah, Rush is awesome, Hmeispheres, 2212, A Farewell to Kings and Permanent Waves are always on rotation for me, hard to decide my favroite from Rush, most albums are really good.

I still remember the kid next door bringing it over and us throwing it onto my record player.

Neil is such a legend, I feel incredibly grateful I got to see him live. RIP Mr Professor! I did not yet get a chance to watch the documentary but will but it on my list!

My initial intention was the link the 3 watches to the 3 guys. Thinking of the Dragonball Z for Neil, as he shares a nice moustache with Master Roshi and both of them are professors in their own way. I just don’t think that Neil was an old pervert 😂

What I find incredible is the breadth of their catalogue. You could almost live a life only listening to Rush. OK that would be a bit sad since there is so much great music out there but still, it would not be a bad choice.

Wow, that’s incredible. Since I was born in ‘86, I can say that I missed their ‘prime’ years. Amazing that such a band can transcend generations while still staying « relatively » unknown in the popular sphere (at least in Europe).

I had no clue! What a coincidence. A Geddy Lee X Worn & Wound x ???. What would be your pick of brands for him to collaborate with?
