Rush Can Keep Popping Into Your Life

slcSalt Lake City Weekly’s Randy Harward explains how Rush kept popping into his life.

We’ve all had moments like he describes experiencing a memorable song for the first time:

“I recall hearing ‘The Spirit of Radio’ for the first time on a rare lonely last leg of that walk to school. Singer-bassist Geddy Lee sang of music making my ‘morning mood’ and of ‘undemanding contact in your happy solitude.’ The chorus played as I passed a 6-foot high wooden fence that caused the morning sun to strobe. ‘Invisible airwaves crackle with life/ bright antennae bristle with the energy.’ Suddenly, the lonely day ahead didn’t look so bad.”

Rush plays Salt Lake City’s Maverik Center tonight on the R40 Live tour.
