    Great opening song to the Grace Under Pressure album - one of my Rush favorites! But they take this song to another level when they play it live. Looking forward to seeing the boys play again next month! 22 days and counting...

    Habe sie vor ein paar Jahren in Oberhausen erleben dürfen. Geeeeeeeeeeeeenial! Großer Einfluss, Wahnsinnsstimme, Hammerbass, geile Gitarre und virtuoses Gedrumme. Sympathische Truppe!
