Saw Jesse Malin's StrummerJam tribute to Joe Strummer last night at the Bowery Ballroom in NY. Kilerr show. Tommy Stinson kicked the tribute portion w a great "Hateful". HR did an excellent job on "Police & Thieves". So...listening to lots of Joe Strummer & the Clash.

imagine hearing this when it first came out!
Some of us don't have to imagine what it was like. :)

I have to say though, that in the scheme of things in and around The Summer Of Love, "Walrus" wasn't that odd. Keep in mind that it came out after Revolver and Sgt. Pepper.

What's really amazing to consider is that there were less than four years between I Want To Hold Your Hand and I Am The Walrus.

yeah i didn't think of that. i was having one of those magical "hearing it fresh" moments and it was freaking me out in a great way.

i was still in diapers when it came out so i can't honestly say i remember hearing it then. my dad was a pseudo hippie so i'm sure
it was on at the house and in the car.

Neil Peart is a great drummer and I like his lyrics as well. I don't want to go in a debate, but I prefer the drumming of Neil and I think he's very 'musical'. Neil's drumming always fits and accentuates the lyrics as well.

not to stir up anything (i'd NEVER do that) but there's nothing musical about RUSH. :DD

and as much as i've enjoyed him, his drumming sounds more like math than music.

That is your opinion. I have heard people say that about Rush before. I get it. But that's not my opinion.
I am a musician, and I think they are very 'musical'. Rush is not for everyone, but if you get it it is really good. It's not like "de do do do, de da da da", or like "coo coo cachoo", but it is good. They do their own thing, they always have done.
Rush, you hate them or you love them. A bit like Bukowski.

I remember a friend introducing me to Rush at the end of the 1980ies. I listened to the album Hold Your Fire and found it great. The music and the lyrics.
