Rush Tops Rolling Stone Readers Poll: The Best Prog Rock Bands of All Time

UPDATE: Even if Rolling Stone's writers can't get it right, at least their readers have a clue...  From today's
Readers Poll: The Best Prog Rock Bands of All Time: "You chose Tool, Genesis, King Crimson...and a certain trio from Canada"

1. Rush: "Well, this poll wasn't even close. Rush won in a landslide – but this couldn't come as any surprise. The Canadian trio have perhaps the most intense and enthusiastic fan community in all of rock. The band deserves such commitment. While most of their peers have fallen apart due to greed or laziness, Rush has maintained the same line-up since 1975 and their concerts are as spellbinding as they ever were. It's also beyond dispute that Neil Peart is the greatest drummer on the planet. They just wrapped up an epic tour where they played Moving Pictures straight through, and are working on a new album. Here's hoping that they bust out 2112 the next time out. It's the only way to top that last tour." -, July 20, 2011 Thanks to RushFanForever for the headsup!
