Man, I could waste a lifetime clicking through YouTube, looking for obscure things to share with all of you...but this one takes the cake. Today, I present the supposed first-ever live performance of Rush's "Tom Sawyer." According to the comments, the song hadn't even been recorded yet and the band was still working it out. What would it have been like to have heard "Tom Sawyer" before it was set in stone? Good grief! Pay attention to the lyrics and the rhythm.
I'll admit, I was so excited in finding this last night I sort of jumped around on the couch. But, I'm a music nerd, so there you go. I'm not the biggest Rush fan in the world but I would like to see them in concert...but it doesn't look like that's going to happen this summer. The 'Time Machine' tour is going on right now.
