Rush was the band that first got me into classic rock when I was a kid. Before I ever heard Zep, ACDC, or Jimi, I heard Free Will on the radio and it changed my taste in music forever.
In my opinion Red Barchetta is the best song about a car ever. The song was inspired by the short story “A Nice Morning Drive”, by Richard Foster for Road & Track magazine. The futuristic dystopia where cars are illegal always fascinated me and the song really takes you along for the ride.
RIP Neil, you music will live on forever
