Rush songs sometimes came out whole, sometimes bits and pieces. Geddy Lee:
But as time went on, we developed a rapport and a feel for each other and a consideration for each other. Neil, in terms of writing, became more and more considerate of what I had to do, of my job not just as a singer of words but as a shaper of melody, and someone who also had to express emotions. He was very sensitive to that, and always for many years, sat beside me in the control room when we listened back to vocals. If we talked about something that could be improved, he would rewrite it on the spot.

In later years, while we were writing the material, he pretty much gave me license to choose the bits of his lyric that moved me the most, that I felt I could write a melody to or arrange a song around. Even if it was four lines out of six stanzas, he would go back and he would rewrite the song around those four lines. Neil was a perfect example of a guy who checked his ego at the door.

He was a proud guy, but at the same time he was a team guy in terms of Alex and me, and he really trusted, in the end, my opinion and my take on what I felt worked best for a Rush song and what didn’t. Which is not to say we never had an argument.

A simple song around a riff, but Neil's lyrics were in his Randian phase:

Hanoi Rocks was one of the first Finnish bands to tour the world in the early 80s. Mike Monroe also one of the few singer who had no trace of Finnish while singing.


Mike with Remu Aaltonen band 2019


I Will Stay is a nearly bubblegum hit by a Danish band from the 60s. Hurriganes played it for a long time till bassist Cisse died

Once upon a time Jerry lee Lewis showed up in Stockholm to play to a nearly empty house. "Where is everyone?" They were at the Hurriganes concert.

Box is a real work of art, can't understand a word but it is nice on random play - through some half decent speakers...
