I adore this song on many, many levels. One very close to the top is Geddy’s wicked bass playing. Anyway, I’m driven to start completing various projects at long last, and have a time frame for the long overdue Salon. Turns out my October/November interview victim is having some issues now, so that’s going to be delayed for a while. Thus, I’ve decided to be really nasty to my thirteen Salon readers and do a double issue. Expect it in mid-December ...

This version is shorter than the Driven solo I remember seeing live; but I think it was a little different every time. I could probably be a very happy snake for quite some time, listening to nothing but terrific bass licks like this—and so many of Rush’s other songs. Malignant Narcissism is another funky bass-driven song I can’t see not enjoying.
