You have your answer right there. Most people who don't rank Geddy up there have never listened to Rush at length. I've seen Rush in concert at least a dozen times, and I'd pay the ticket price to see Neil, Geddy, or Alex just playing unaccompanied. Unfortunately, their music does not have a wide enough listener appreal for most people to understand. Maybe a parallel could be made with Dream Theater - Portnoy and Petrucci are incredible musicians, but most people have never heard them. In that case, I'm not a fan of most DT songs, but after being exposed to some of their music, I gained great appreciation for their virtuosity.
