I used to love Rush as well. I know song "YYZ" is an homage to Toronto as it is the airport code for Pearson International. Named for one of the greatest Canadians, father of the UN peacekeepers, Nobel Peace Prize winner and prime minister.
I have seen Rush 3 times in concert starting with Hemispheres then Permanent Waves and finally Moving Picture tours. If I could just stand Geddy's voice through a Shure IEM.
Too funny Spook...I am a huge Rush fan as my late brother was way before me.. ( I am 47)... I can handle Getty's voice on studio recordings with my 846...just can't take any live stuff in recent years... so shrill and sad even off tune at times imho!! The magic of the studio covers up all that...I love clockwork angels...just not live!!
