Readers Poll: The Best Prog Rock Bands of All Time: 1. Rush - Rolling Stone Music
Rolling Stone held a poll for "The Best Prog Rock Bands of All Time," and Rush won. In a landslide.
Here are the comments:
Well, this poll wasn't even close. Rush won in a landslide -- but this couldn't come as any surprise. The Canadian trio have perhaps the most intense and enthusiastic fan community in all of rock. The band deserves such commitment. While most of their peers have fallen apart due to greed or laziness, Rush has maintained the same line-up since 1975 and their concerts are as spellbinding as they ever were. It's also beyond dispute that Neil Peart is the greatest drummer on the planet. They just wrapped up an epic tour where they played Moving Pictures straight through, and are working on a new album. Here's hoping that they bust out 2112 the next time out. It's the only way to top that last tour.
I guess Rolling Stone is continuing to warm up to Rush. Unfortunately, their lack of research still shows, as they didn't even know that Rush performed "2112" on the Test for Echo tour.
Thanks to PowerWindows for the head's up!
