Rush: “La Villa Strangiato”, Live (1978)

In celebration of Geddy Lee’s birthday today, we thought we’d go back to some early years Rush, and ultimately picked this 1978 performance of “La Villa Strangiato”.

Oh, that tone!

As a teenager, I wore the grooves down on more than one Rush LP because of this tune. How about you?

  2. That was wicked!

  3. in 1980 I bought a 75 4001 ricky because of this song.

  4. man do I love this track…I played in a Rush cover band in highschool a million years ago and this was a staple. Finally got to play it for a crowd a few years ago and man was it fun to rock out on this song.

  5. A freakin’ Canadian treasure…..we love our RUSH.

  6. I met Getty! time and he was the most down to earth person. Great bass and keyboard player.
