No, we are not talking about college kids trying to get into greek life. This week, Jim and Patrick (along with Bobby Padavick and Charles Andrews of the Washington D.C. band Night Streets) are tuning in to the legendary sound of Rush. The band turns 40 this August, so naturally we HAVE to talk about them! In today’s episode, we dive into the band’s eighth studio album Moving Pictures.

FUN FACT: Like most bands, Rush has been through a transition period. After their founding in Toronto, their original lineup was Alex Lifeson (guitar), Jeff Jones (bass) and John Rutsey (drums).
