"Nobody is losing money here, including us, in all this. And that is key for you to understand. They are not canceling the business on our stations. They're just saying they don't want their spots to appear in my show. We don't get any revenue from 'em anyway. The whole effort is to dispirit you. It's to make you think the left is being successful in its campaign when it isn't. In fact, the left is so fed up, they can't see straight. They thought they had me. They thought I would be off the air by now. They can't understand why I still am on the air. There is also another rumor going around that I am going to be suspended for a week. It is utter BS.


I would have to suspend myself!"

I had a typo in the subject line and moved it there for ten seconds so I could change it and then moved it back here.

The bright side of this is, you're not nuts....although it was only there for ten seconds or so....hmmm something to work on. :)

Glad I'm not the only one that was thinking of the rock band.

Let's see... there was Neal Pert, Geddy Lee (I'm pretty sure I've screwed up the spelling) and who was the other guy?

This whole imbroglio merely serves as a coda to previously known attributes of Mr. Limbaugh and his dittohead audience. He may think the left is seething; actually, it is women across the board. Clueless as usual.

Remember the Limbo Rock?

There's a new dance called the Limbaugh Rock.

You bend over backward, shove your head up your bum, and keep on pushin'.

The advertisers are, of course, just worried about being tarred with the stink of Limbaugh. However if people make it known that as long as Rush is on the air, they will continue to boycott even former sponsors who have, by default, endorsed the previous 99% of what he says, they may have a problem. Not sure if that will drive him off the air, they make piles of money off him, but it will be an annoyance, and a distraction to the conservative agenda in an election year. You know how conservatives have been poking at fringe issues just to get a rise out of liberals and distract people for the real (money) issues? Turn about is fair play.

Oh, by the way, I haven't heard anyone argue that if Rush thinks he has a right to watch a woman have sex because their birth control is funded by insurance or the public, shouldn't the same apply for males on erectile dysfunction drugs? Given Rush's weight, smoking, and past record of drug abuse, I'm betting that he falls into that category.

Ugh! A Rush porn viddy wouldn't be erotic so much as emetic.

If you'd like to pursue a free-market remedy for Mr. Limbaugh's conduct, here's a link:

http://mediamatters.org/blog/201203050019

Contact his advertisers and say: If you sponsor Limbaugh, I won't contribute, support you, or buy your stuff.

Here's a FaceBook page:

Alex Lifeson.
You got Geddy Lee right, but it's Neil Peart, IIRC.
And it's "is" not "was", they're still kicking out albums and touring.

YRC.

Yeah, as a longtime fan I was a bit annoyed when I heard them referred to as a "70s rock band" in the Canadian news (such ignorance might have been more forgivable if it weren't in their home country). Not only were their most successful albums released in the 80s, they are still going strong and recently received the Juno award (Canadian equivalent of a Grammy) for best rock DVD.

Amazing musicians; Peart has been retired from the "Best Rock Drummer" category in Modern Drummer for winning five times, Lee has been retired as "Best Rock Bassist" after winning five times in Bass Player, and Lifeson has been retired as "Best Rock Guitarist" after winning five times in Guitar Player. No other band has come close to having all of its members achieve this feat... and these guys, IIRC, aren't in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Must be a pretty useless institution, I figure.

Yes....Im glad he is still on. Not that I listen to him but if anytime someone on the air says something offensive and gets taken off the air...Its not a good thing.

OK, time for a 'moderate' view. The bailing out of advertisers from Rush Limbaugh's show will NOT result in any severe damage. Clear Channel might take a modest hit on advertising revenues, because while some of the advertisers may just not want their ads appearing during Rush's show, a few are likely to pull out of Clear Channel completely... but not many.
Just some fun trivia:

Rush Limbaugh's show is syndicated by Premier Radio Networks.
Premier Radio Networks is a subsidiary of Clear Channel.
Clear Channel is owned by Bain Capital.

Are we having fun yet? :D

The thing that blew me away watching Rush (I've seen them three times) is Geddy Lee's multi-tasking. I've seen him play keys with his right hand, tap notes on the bass with his left, sing, and play pedals. That's four separate tracks he's performing with different body parts. Man, I can sing and play guitar at the same time, and I can walk and play guitar at the same time, but I start hitting my limits around the time I start trying to walk and sing and play guitar at the same time. Man's a genius.

You got that right man. I can't think of any 3 player band that can make so much music. If you are just listening, not watching them, you'd swear there's about 5 guys there. ..

New album, Clockwork Angels, is due out around May, the release date should be announced any day now. There'll probably be a North American tour in the fall.

Edit: Just checked RushIsABand (http://www.rushisaband.com/) after posting and there it is - Clockwork Angels due for release on May 29th, but that's only through Amazon, not official news from Standing Room Only.

Couple of years too early, it was released in 75. It was my 4th or 5th Rush album (bought it on the same day I got Caress of Steel) but I waited until 83, mainly because I was only 5 when it was released and I didn't know about Rush until the summer of 81. By April 84 when Grace Under Pressure came out, I'd got their entire back catalog.

First Rush song I heard was The Trees on a rock compilation album called Axe Attack.
The first Rush record I bought was the live single of Tom Sawyer with Passage to Bangkok on the B side.
The first Rush album I got was Signals, still my favourite album, 30 years later.

There's a couple of dedicated Rock radio stations in NZ, but neither play any Rush whatsoever. Now we get a TV channel called MTV Classic that shows some VH1 shows, Rush can be seen on TV very rarely, like in a 100 best rock songs where Tom Sawyer came in at an underrated 19th. As far as I'm aware, Rush have never been to Australia or New Zealand as a band.

I lived in the UK until 2004 and that was where I was exposed to the band. Unfortunately they didn't tour the UK from 82 - 88, and I missed the Signals tour, just. I saw them for Hold Your Fire (I was a the NEC show that some of A Show of Hands was recorded at) and I saw the Roll The Bones as well, in 92 I think. Then they were a no show all the way until the R30 tour that I went to see, and it was 3 months after that I emigrated. If I'm going to see them again then I'd have to make a trip to North America or Europe for the privilege.

BTW. I have got tickets to see Yes in Auckland on April 1st. That will be there first ever live appearance in NZ, but it's not a classic lineup - no Jon Anderson and with Geoff Downes on keyboards.
