Hey, I’m only going by what Geddy said before the play it on the Different Stages album. That's why there were quotation marks.

Amongst many - he's also a golfer. :P

Almost of the lyrics of RUSH are born of the same stuff of [email protected] They are a disgrace to rock music and its socialist roots.

Actually they are influenced by Ayn Rand (whose novel Anthem inspired the tracks - Anthem & 2112) purveyor of dodgy SF and mainthinker of "Objectivism", a branch of philosophy which lauded the individual and his (she was no femenist) right to pursue happiness.

Saying Thatcher used some of Rand's ideas would be closer to the heart mark.

Plus the fact Rush were releasing stuff well before Thatcher came to power so if they’re influenced by her yet Thatcherism didn’t start until at least half a decade later then that’s a pretty neat trick. B)

Top man BtB, good to see somebud that knows their stuff, unlike HHiBSS who just liked the iron-on RUSH badge for his denim jacket. :lol:

I did in fact say: "Almost of the lyrics of RUSH are born of the same stuff of [email protected]" - born of the same stuff. Thatcher was also an Objectivist - the lyrics to Free Will was of course a pre-logue to Thatchers destruction of mining and attempted destruction of unionism. RUSH are a disgrace and it beggars belief that anyone in Scotland outside Milngavie and Morningside would even consider listening to them. :wink:

I was hoping someone would be daft enough to jump in with nonsense about Thatcher being after RUSH. :rolleyes:

You'll be calling them Fascists next. :rolleyes:

Alan Greenspan who was Ronald Raygun's Chairman of the Federal Reserve (The U.S. Equivalent to Chancellor of The Exchequer) was an early adherent of Ayn Rand's philosophy.

You get a better sort of nutter in U.S. Politix!
