Some of these articles reminded me what a hack-level hipster doofus rag Creem magazine used to be.

This is an astounding compilation.....i'm sure there are many fans that have originals of these articles and literature in their collections, but to have these all scanned, and put together in this fashion for all "online" fans to enjoy is just mind blowing to me. Thanks to all that contributed to this effort. Little by little i'd like to make my way through this. One humorous thing i've already found is an early article, i believe 1974 where they describe Rush's opening tune "Finding My May". And how, pray-tell, does that even make sense? LOL. Didn't have spell check back then, or a competant editor? Hahaha. Rush's "The Words and the Pictures" containing reproductions of Neils hand-written lyric sheets is riveting. Seeing how the song's lyrics were fashioned, in text, the breaks within the text, the pictures and notes along the sides, brings such depth and color to the music, IMO. I LOVE history and when there's a place to go that's easy access to puruse the history of my favorite band----just priceless. Thank you Ed for posting this!

Fortunately, Al can get up from the chair if he wants, although he is a lot sillier than Stephen.

Stephen Hawking looks a lot like a young Alex Lifeson these days.
