..or rather, I just ain't quite as informed as I thought. I heard a song on the radio today during a request hour, that I had heard before, but for some reason today it just blew me away. I had to call the station to find out the name of the song and the artist. Max Webster, collaborrating with Rush and Kim Mitchell. Tune called "Battlescar". I
I've been looking into some of their stuff. Man, this is great. I'd heard the song "Go For A Soda" and had heard the artist's name but today it all clicked in. Some good stuff.
Hear "Battlescar" with the Rush boys here: http://www.emp3world.com/to_download.php?id=33532
Or right click and "save as": http://www.2112.net/sphere/virtualsongs/audio/Max_Webster-Battlescar.mp3

Ya' know us Canadian rockers kind of take Kim Mitchell and Rush for granted.

I was down to the "grand opening" of Long & McQuade's new store in Markham this past month and Kim Mitchell was there for a live show. Real good rocker. I enjoyed it a whole lot. His bass player is really hot.

Anyway, glad you've stumbled on our little secrets.

Interesting....several years ago, a local radio station played this song called "Go For A Soda", and I really liked the song. But, I never heard it played on any other stations, and I never heard the name of the artist. Finally, one day, it was playing on the local station, so I called and asked the DJ about the song. He told me it was by Kim Mitchell, that it was a Canadian recording, and that it was "out of print". I tried several record stores here, to no avail. However, by this time, I had access to the Internet, and it was simple to find a copy of "Kimbo Alogo". Got my copy of the song....and several other good ones on the album, too.

So what’s the deal on “nice looking”, “really hot” bass players? Is this a recent fad to have babes playing bass in bands? Perhaps a shrewd marketing ploy?

Is that second voice I'm hearing Geddy Lee's?
In my opinion, one of the best voices in rock.
He can really hit them highs!

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE BAND'S 30 YEAR RECORDING CAREER.

1974 - Rush released their first album entitled "RUSH". It became the biggest selling debut LP that any Canadian band had ever released. The band spent years building their core audience by constant touring in North America doing as many as 200 dates a year.

This is the first time the Order of Canada is given to a group rather than an individual.

1997 - May- The Foundation Forum and F Musicfest have announced Rush this year's recipient of the "Concrete/Foundations Outstanding Contribution to Music Award". Rush joins a distinguished list of receipts including Van Halen, KISS, Ozzy Osbourne and Alice Cooper.

Although "CANUTS" may sometimes be appropriate, the proper term is Canucks. Yes, it's a term for Canadians.

Patrick, you don't seem to be a musician. "Really hot" in musician parlance is "very, very, good".

It is. That's why I said what I did in my original post about "...the Rush boys.." They all three played on that particualr tune, maybe others as well, I haven't looked that hard yet. But yeah, he has a very distinct voice. I originally thought that it was The Tubes doing that song, with Geddy doing some backgrounds. Webster's vocals sound a lot like Fee Waybill, and the overall tune sounded just like the kind of stuff The Tubes were doing in the late 80's-early 90's.
