Pigs Fly and Ice In Hell: Rolling Stone Runs Rush Article

...and it's not a total slam! Sure, they invoke the whole 'geeks dig Rush' theme, but it's a far cry (pun intended) from how the magazine has either ignored or slammed the band over Rush's 35 year career.

I mean, they have been ruthless. I think that when the last album sold enough copies to land it in the top ten, instead of giving credit where credit was due, Rolling Stone said something like, "350,000 Rush fans came out of their mother's basements long enough to buy the new album" or some shit like that.

But someone pulled their head out of their ass long enough to realize that the band has more than earned its due - so we get a four page fairly positive spread on the band, called Rush Never Sleeps (clever). I have yet to receive my copy in the mail but someone scanned the whole article and posted it to RushIsABand. Enjoy!

I must admit I'm still doing a bit of a double take on this one. It seems so implausible, it must be some kind of elaborate joke or something. Next think you know, Rush will be in the Hall of Fame... Anyway, I really appreciate the post, gave me a lift.
