Two Guys Talking Rush
Two Guys Talking Rush
John Kane and Dan Bukszpan
Amid generations of die hard fans what hasn’t already been discussed about RUSH? Even so, their indelible imprint binds us, propelling further discourse about our geek-rock idols. With every album and supporting tour, there was always hope of another glimpse of their exemplary musicianship. This is no longer. In scope Two Guys Talking Rush keeps the conversation and spirit alive about the technical, and philosophical mastery of a Canadian band that meant so much to so many.
EPISODE SEVENTY FOUR: Two Guys Talking Rush/Different Stages w Robert Scovill
Episode 74: Different Stages w Robert Scovill Hello, RUSH fans! It has been too long… We are glad to be back with this lost episode for you which we recorded back in the spring. However, it is most fitting that it arrives on the eve of the winter solstice, as for me RUSH has always been a winter band. Different Stages… Our guest Robert Scovill, is a multi-award-winning concert sound engineer and Senior Live Sound Specialist at Avid Technologies. He has worked with countless artists such as Def Leppard, Kenny Chesney, Tom Petty, and RUSH! In this episode, Robert discusses in detail the recording process of the epic RUSH live album Different Stages, released in 1998. Enjoy! See you on the flippity flop! Happy Holidays! Love, JK & DB

EPISODE SEVENTY: Two Guys Talking Rush/Rush Haters
BAH HUMBUG! Yes, you read the title right -Rush Haters! And yes, Dan and I went there. Folks...lets face it...It is no secret that Rush are an acquired taste. And in this episode we learn from our distinguished panelists why. It's cool, more Rush for me... thats how I look at it. Tune and listen to Paul Green (founder of School of Rock) Leslie Ylinen (writer, journalist) and David Setgenian (just doesn't like Rush) discuss their aversions toward Rush. This was a tough one...but we all walked away still respecting each other. As it should be. Happy Holidays! Love John & Dan Rush Rules!

EPISODE SIXTY SEVEN: Two Guys Talking Rush/ Pt.3 w Zbigniew Rybczyński
Continued... In 2013, writer Adrian Begrand (Popmatters) listed the Rush song "Time Stand Still" at #8 on his "10 Songs That Will Make You Love Rush", calling it "Rush’s best pop moment." And I would have to agree… It is truly one of their best. However, according to many fans the accompanying video might also be one of Rush’s worse visual moments. Regardless on your take of what the infamous TSS video is really getting at…after you listen to this episode of Two Guys Talking Rush you may discover that it could be the most misunderstood during their “VHS years.” As always, we like to deep dive on this show…and this might be our “deepest.” As we turn the clocks back, and settle into the dark doldrums of winter lets reflect on a time when Rush were both experimental with their music, flying capabilities, and videos… and we have award winning Polish filmmaker/innovator Zbigniew “Zbig” Rybczyński to thank for that. Be thankful folks. Hug a friend, a family member, a stranger (mask up) and remember… Summer's going fast
 Nights growing colder
 Children growing up
 Old friends growing older Freeze this moment
 A little bit longer
 Make each sensation
 A little bit stronger Experience slips away… Love John & Dan Please support the 2GTR podcast on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/twoguystalkingrush
