Speaking of Canada.....RUSH!!!

So while we were away in the Great White North, apparently Rush made their first appearance on US television in 33 years, performing on The Colbert Report. "They're like the J.D. Salinger of Canadian Prog-Rock." The intro was hilarious. Okay, so this is likely only moderately funny to those who are not a drummer like myself, or a standard Rush geek like my brother. Suffer through it anyway. Linky to the full episode here. I've posted the first segment of the show below.

I believe the proper nomenclature is "Rushian".

All I can think of is Conan singing Limelight while interviewing that weird producer guy.

Still one of the funniest Conan bits ever, strike or non-strike.
