So the discussion was; "Do we write our bios in the third person so we can shamelessly talk ourselves up, or do we write them from the "first person," modestly highlighting our accomplishments? Hmmmm.....well.....in the "first person" it is, then!" And I, for one, have no problem telling you all just how fantastic I am! :) (Laughter from my band mates here please) Although I've been playing bass a good many years, guitar is actually my first instrument. And before I alienate you "Bass playing Rush aficionados", hear me out! I have always considered myself to be a heavily rhythmic and groove oriented guitarist. Not that this alone qualifies me to pull off Geddy's role, but I do consider him to be a very melodic bass player, and quite guitar-like in his aggressive approach. So I guess I'd like to think we meet somewhere in the middle, which makes for a respectable interpretation.
The Lotus Endeavor:
I've always had an endearing affection for the music of Rush, and have had a tribute band on my "to do" list for several years. Finally in the summer of 06, I found these boys who share the same obsessive approach; an approach that inevitably compels us to incorporate every authentic Rush nuance into whatever amazing tune of theirs we may be playing.
So, after countless hours of rehearsing, listening to Cd's, and watching tape, it would seem we are ready to bring this project to all of Rush's hard core fans out there who, I believe, will be as understandably critical of us as they are loyal to the real thing.
