4:59PM EST | comments (22) |

Rush 1974Eric over at Power Windows recently dug up this rare, early Rush radio interview from 1974 that had been posted to YouTube this past summer. It was recorded on October 17th, 1974 backstage at a club called the Travis Street Electric Co. in Dallas, TX. Neil had joined the band just a few months prior to the interview. You can listen to the 6-minute interview below or on YouTube here:

Listened to this the other day. Really interesting and cool, to hear an interview from so early on and not long after Neil joined.

One-hit wonders.

They're not going to last.

Man, I should've gone to that gig! It was just a few miles from my house! And I had been two for a few months.

Take it from me: parents just don't understand.

they all pretty much sound the same. The only one that sounds significantly different to me is Alex.

"We've had Neil for about three weeks now"

Nice, what a great time machine to listen too.
