When I was in fifth grade, our local high school did a talent show at our school. After the show, one of the bands stayed late and rocked out to My Sharona.

Right there and then I knew I wanted to play the drums.

For me, it was multiple songs, not just one. A whole album.

The first time I heard "Moving Pictures", and had never heard drumming like that before, I had to start.

hey, another Focus fan?? man, I was so into them in the 70's.. I convinced our band to play Sylvia back in the early 80's when we got a keyboard player.. I still have about 3 of their records in my collection :-)

Awesome, I have that Rush in Rio dvd. I was 11 when the first Rush album came out I think.. bought it.. then Caress of Steel, then Fly By Night, and then, oh man.. 2112 when I was 13 and as a budding drummer and getting drawn into Progressive Rock, and of course LSD, that album was the mind blower.. the one I'd put on when I came home still tripping out on acid or straight, it was my go to before my Led Zeppelin addiction. What an album.. of course I had to buy All The World's a Stage and Farewell to Kings, and Hemispheres.. and and and.. lol.. I've never stopped loving them.

Fun fact, when I was 16 and a councellor in training at summer camp, I had a girlfriend from Willowdale and she said Neil's family's house was behind hers.. she didn't really know the band so it could have been Geddy or Alex now that I think of it, but I'm fairly sure it was the Pearts because I was so jealous and the drummer connection thing.. I went to visit her once but never got to take a walk around the block to see if anyone was around.. judging by how down to earth they were I bet if anyone WAS out on the lawn or in the backyard they'd be ok to have a stranger/fan say hi. What an awesome era to be a teenager.

Great story!

I was 14 years old. The local rock radio station played 2112 one night for the Midnite Album and I was taping it, because that is what you did in the day. Those incredible fills totally grabbed me when I first heard them.

I had drum sticks but not drums yet. I laid out books of different thicknesses on my bed, replayed the 2112 intro, and immediately tried to copy some of his fills. Been a Rush fan ever since.
