Rush wins three 2014 Ultimate Classic Rock Awards
12:32PM EST | comments (21) |

Rush Clockwork Angels TourVoting has closed in the 2014 Ultimate Classic Rock Awards and Rush came away on top in 3 of the categories; Song of the Year (The Garden), Best Tour of 2013 (Clockwork Angels Tour), and Best Live Album of 2013 (Clockwork Angels Tour). From the Ultimate Classic Rock website:

... In the closest race in this year's awards, Rush's 'The Garden' took home Song of the Year honors, narrowly beating out Paul McCartney's 'Queenie Eye' by 37.4 percent to 36.8 percent. The song originally appeared on 2012′s 'Clockwork Angels,' but it qualified for this year's awards by virtue of a 10″ picture disc release on Record Store Day.

Their 'Clockwork Angels' tour netted them two awards. Again, they faced a strong challenge from Paul McCartney in the Best Tour of 2013 category, but prevailed with nearly 36 percent to McCartney's 28 percent. Fleetwood Mac's reunion was in third place with close to 16 percent.

And in the Best Live Album of 2013 category, the document of their Nov. 28, 2012 show in Dallas also beat McCartney, albeit a package from his first band. 'Clockwork Angels Tour' bested the Beatles' 'On Air: Live at the BBC Vol. 2' 44 percent to 37 percent. ...

Thanks to Travis B for the heads up.

I wish I was a loofa.

Chicks dig me, because I rarely wear underwear and when I do it's usually something unusual.

Fellas! I gotta tell you. This is dynamite stuff. I too love 'The Garden' as you kids like to call it. Many times I just like to soak up all that is Jersey, be it the Garden State Parkway, the Garden State Plaza, or sometimes walking out into my own 'garden', naked with a pitcher of Martinis, with the dirt between my toes, roaming the vegetable aisles.

Well I must be going, in the fullness the time the hours tick away and I promised a group of wayward Swedish female Olympic skaters that I met at the bus depot last night around 3 am that I help them find some ice. I've got several trays chilling in the trailer's freezer here. Now if I can just find those highball glasses. Well ta-ta kids.
