Rush – “Xanadu” video

by TW on December 9, 2008

This video of Rush performing “Xanadu” from A Farewell To Kings is a great look back at a time when Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart were tapping into some amazingly creative powers. The atmosphere of this song is incredible – the chimes, wind, bird noises and all. I love Alex and Geddy on the respective double-necks, and Peart’s drumming is phenomenal. Check out the hi-hat and snare work at 1:40 into it.

Neil appears in this very funny movie about air-drummers which comes out next year. There are other classic songs in it too, Judas Priest, Loverboy, Heart, Genesis.
