Typical horseshit from human slimeball, prostitute, and egomaniac Gene Simmons. Both Peter Criss and Ace Frehely have had great things to say about touring with Rush, complementing them both as musicians and as a band. Leave it to least talented bass player in the world to try make it about him. He should shut the fuck up and go back to making KISS pencil holders or whatever it is he does these days.

And for their part, Rush have said that they learned a lot about what NOT to do from Simmons. Geddy Lee could outplay that hack with two missing arms.


RUSH should pay them back then,by teaching them how to play !!!!! :lol:

Rush should pay them back by learning how to play

If you don't like Rush, that's fine, but objectively speaking they're superior musicians to KISS is about every respect. Geddy Lee in particular makes Gene Simmons look like some dope that picked up a bass for the first time about five minutes before he went on stage.

Of course, that piece of shit has looked like that for close to forty years now, so I guess that isn't saying much.

The "music" that sucks the most:
rap "artists"
screamo bands
boy bands
disney bands
american idol winners
A lot of country
Several rock bands.

Music just plain flat out sucks now.

Roger Glover runs circles around Geddy Lee, Ritchie Blackmore is still teaching Lifeson how to play guitar, Ian Paice? C'mon...Neil Peart doesn't hold a torch to him. And Ian Gillan? Greatest singer of all time. I"ll give you that Rush is a better band than Kiss...

None of you have mentioned Nickeback yet.. good god, I get a serious case of douche chills when I hear even a second of any of their garbage.

But there are tons of really bad bands out there these days. I can probably rattle off a hundred of them. It's like the god damn 80's all over again, like all the crappy pop bands and bad hair metal bands that were on MTV (or in my case Much Music) every 2 seconds.

It's a nasty cycle in the music biz. Put out crap, kids buy until they get smart, good music comes out, kids buy, music industry clones and over saturates, things get crappy again, younger kids buy...and the cycle begins anew.

paice is a great drummer. he has been one of my favorites since i was young. but neil peart has taken drumming to an entire new level. there are only a few drummers that have achieved that level of skill. perhaps it's partly his style? but he's still damn good. other great drummers are ginger baker, steve smith and mike portnoy. if there is one drummer that is above peart i'd have to say it's ginger baker.

i might have to disagree with you on this one mysteryman. peart is better than ever. the rio dvd drum solo is absolutely phenomenal. i think he's getting better with age. i saw rush in '02. it was the best damn concert i have ever seen.

what is your favorite rush album? for me it's moving pictures.

Yeah, but if there's one drummer who is above Ginger Baker (who is great..don't get me wrong) it's Keith Moon.
