I was catching a ride with my uncle to the store, when he was playing " The Body Electric " ( from The "Grace Under Pressure" album ). At the time, all I really heard ( cause my parents made me listen to it on their trips ) was Abba! ( oh the humanity!! ) That day changed my life! Literally! If it wasn't for Rush, no guitar, no Woman, no marriage, no child. That's how I see it anyways!I became a Rush fan very early on. I want to say late 80's, when i was a regular at a local BBS called "The Lerxstwood Mall" - they had all the lyrics avilable, which I loved, and then my folks bought me the Body Electric album. Shortly after that, most of the Rush audiorecordings at the library near my house strangely went missing..
I still get Tom Sawyer stuck in my head fom time to time.
