shirt, this hurts. RIP Ghost Rider


A legend among rock stars. His work was just mind boggling. Listening to him you thought he had 6 arms.

This explains why he left Rush.

There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas
The trouble with the maples
And they're quite convinced they're right
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light
But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade?
There is trouble in the forest
And the creatures all have fled
As the maples scream 'oppression!'
And the oaks, just shake their heads
So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
'The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light'
Now there's no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet,
Axe,
And saw

RIP Neil... you were quite an inspiration and this song taught me how to approach libertarian politics with my daughter. sad news indeed.

Woooowww
That sucks
I knew he had been sick but this is still hard to read
Can’t imagine what HS would have been like for me without Rush
Same here, I learned to play guitar from Rush songs....

It's one of all of our favs bro...
QFT.....Glittering prizes and endless compromises, shatters the illusion of integrity....yeeeeaaahhhh

One of the best lyrics ever written IMO.....

Oldie, but still a goodie! As always, Alex steals the scene. Watching this again now brings a smile to my face, as well as a tear to my eye.

Thanks for posting this, I remember seeing it a while ago on VH1 or AXES or something....I think its obvious these guys were like brothers....makes me so sad that Neil died way before what should have been his time....

RIP brother, Rush shaped my musical taste from a young age. There has been no replacement.
Sad I did not make it to the final tour, although I was in New Orleans for the Time machine Tour, my wife's first Rush Concert.
