    I really couldn't care less if a Rush pin was made, but I would be happy for my Canadian friends (and anyone else who likes the group).

    No way this happens, but I'd be delighted to be wrong.

    Then it's time to reallocate the budget and prepare for my one and only NIB pin.

    Rush is a weird group, they seem to be far more popular outside of Canada than they are inside. They had a couple hits but there following has always been other musicians. They have a cult like following of the weird kid from band class. I can't count how many times an American asks me about Rush when he learns I'm Canadian but I only actually know of a handful of Canadians that like them. I could never tolerate a Rush pin at home.

    When I joined Pinside with this username in 2012, I thought there was 0% chance of a Rush pin ever being made.
    If the rumours are true, I will completely lose my shit and have no choice but to buy my first ever LE.

    Fingers crossed!

    You may want to contact a distributor (if you have a relationship with one) and let them know you will be wanting an LE. And you may be surprised to find that there's already a waiting list for people who also want one. But may people back out when they see the price or don't like the artwork, etc., so I'm sure you'll be able to score one eventually.

    #62 4 months ago

    Can’t wait for this and it will likely be my first LE - am already on the list at a couple of distributors and the lists are not short.

    The rumor that this was a Borg / Lyman pin would have been icing on the cake, but sounds like at least the Lyman part is not going to happen. Bummer.

    So many amazing songs but there will be some head scratchers on the list like all Stern music pins.

    Thanks to pinball browser my Metallica Prem turned into a Rush pinball the first week I had it

    Battery - Spirit of Radio
    Blackened - Natural Science
    Creeping Death - Fly by Night
    Enter Sandman - Freewill
    Fade to Black - Beneath, Between, Behind
    For Whom the Bell Tolls - The Trees
    Fuel - Tom Sawyer
    Master of Puppets - Limelight
    One - A Farewell to Kings
    Ride the Lightning - Xanadu
    Sad But True - Red Barchetta
    Seek and Destroy - 2112 Overture
    The End of the Line - Closer to the Heart
    Unforgiven - Bastille Day

    I hope every song on a Rush pin is '75-81

    I will gladly thank you. Now I just need to develop a relationship with a distributor, figure out whether I can really afford an LE or "just" a Premium, and stop visiting the other thread in which people claim to know that Lyman is burnt out and has left Stern.

    I am a leaf on the wind.

    Just call every distributor you can and ask if you can get on a list for interested buyers. But I don't think Lyman is on this game because I do believe he has sadly left Stern.

    And I'm sorry you're a leaf in the wind. That blows.

    It wasnt like that when myself and some buddies traveled up to Toronto to see them play on the Snakes and Arrows tour. The day before and the day of the concert seemed like a holiday around there. Everywhere we went people were talking about it and if we were there to see them.

    I even made sure to get my picture in front of a certain building

    They have a niche following for sure so I would expect to see their fans at an event, in general though they are not a big band in Canada. They are just one of those Canadian acts that got amplified by the CRTC. If you asked 100 Canadians to name a great Canadian Band The Hip would get the vast majority, then a bunch of other bands would split the rest getting a a few of votes each. Rush would would just be in that mix, they would be below Nickleback and Nickleback is generally hated. If you asked 100 Canadians that play music you would find way more Rush fans. Every conversation I have ever heard about Rush is never about how good it sounds or feels. It is always about how technically difficult or impressive it it is to actual be able to be able to play. Its never I love this song, its always it took me three weeks to just learn the intro, they are such amazing musicians. I know they are more popular in other places but I am surprised they are next for a music pin.

    I’m a Rush fan, but I also love Billy Talent from Canada. Will have to see how this pin is before I commit to purchase.

    I didn't get into Rush until the 90's (Roll The Bones was my introduction) but I'm one of the minority of long time fans who's favorite song is actually a "later" Rush song.

    Far Cry.

    That one would be great on a pin.

    Definately will need a sub on this game , best drummer of all time , my opinion , Tom Sawyer rocked in my old Camaro with all EV speakers!

    I'm an old school RUSH fan, but I certainly agree that "Far Cry" would be a great addition. With Far Cry, Trees, 2112, and the like, they could make an interesting social commentary pin (not that they would or should) that would be reflective of Neil Peart's thoughtfulness. I'm hoping they make good use of the numerous melodic instrumentals that they've produced, at least as background between the big song selections.

    On the one hand, Rush has always been involved with humor. They made fun of themselves constantly. But all of them are/were perfectionists, the professor sadly, the bell tolled for thee.
    I was in high school a huge YES fan (Way later toured with Jon as a visual projectionist) and Rush was just a band I never listened to as it simply wasn't progressive enough for my tastes. Until, that day, on Rt 7 in Norwalk Ct on the car radio: "He's a radio receiver, tuned to factories and farms..." The hook.
    Rush is music made by 3 high school buddies, but it's also Neil who injected life philosophy into the message. Listen to "Losing It". Or better yet,


    I hope that a pinball doesn't cheapen their message.

    Yeah, no one listens to Subdivisions because of how it sounds and feels. We get it, you don't like them. There's a lot of other bands for you to go dig.

    I love everything from Permanent Waves on, and love Counterparts. I can't get into the old stuff as much.

    My two cents as one Canadian is in no way meant to represent everyone. To me they have always seemed like a niche band that resonates with musicians. I fully accept they are over my head. This whole thing that one must just agree with a thread or piss off is so odd. I don’t actually dislike them I just don’t dig them enough to listen to them on repeat for the amount of time I would play a new pin. Clearly with all this talk it seems like they are up next from Stern and people are excited, congrats.

    P.S. The post above marvelling about the beyond human skill to play Rush. Who would have guessed.

    I'm a musician and I don't find rush very pleasurable, but I do respect their technical prowess.

    Getty's voice is annoying. Pert was an excellent drummer if you like calculated playing. Danny Carey is by far the better drummer based on nuance and feel. Rush is so... Math.

    For Rosh fans, I hope you get a great machine.

    They are not a niche band. No niche band has toured as they have with as many large venues with such huge crowds as they at the very end of their career.

    You don't dig them.

    Fair enough, they defiantly are not for everybody.

    #81 3 months ago
    Quoted from Tranquilize:

    Getty's voice is annoying.

    I suspect that's one of the reasons they aged so well; losing the ability to hit that higher octave from the early years was a blessing, in many ways. Also, there are lots of singers with "crap" voices that just seem to work in the context of their music. I'd argue that the technical prowess was complemented by sound composition, and were not the indulgent exercises in playing skill that have hampered many other prog type bands. But it doesn't really matter. We like what we like. Ultimately, I just hope the pin is fun to play. And maybe that there is a really cool drum kit on the PF.

    #82 3 months ago

    They’re a niche band if you compare them to pop acts today. But music in the 70s was different. Chicago, Yes, Genesis, Steely Dan, early Journey, and many others were popular bands in the 70s that were hugely popular and didn’t stick to traditional pop/baroque song structures and were technically advanced musicians. There are lots others that followed them into the 80s. In their time Rush was extremely popular and have maintained a following, and managed to bring in younger and new fans. I’d imagine if Yes and Rush both played today, Rush would probably bring in more people than Yes.

    Good call. Ignoring the radio hits, I always thought that Vital Signs or Afterimage (especially the instrumental break) were the premier Rush songs. Their synth era was incredible.
