    RUSH:Top 20 “Deep Cuts” list with Rock Author Martin Popoff

    We’re joined by Canadian experts Martin Popoff (Rush books Author) & Perrin Wolfson (Rock & Metal Journalist) for a Rock & Roll Detention episode to reveal a Top 20 Rush “Deep Cuts” list. We discuss the challenges of narrowing down the selections to a reasonable number, define “what” constitutes a “Deep Cut”, & what kind of Tracks are “off limits”. Also, we share the amazing stories on our personal experiences listening to the music, the road trips to see Rush in concert all over Canada & the US, & the emotional reaction that certain songs trigger, much of which ties back to our age at the time & where we were all at in life. 50 years of Rush music & hundreds of Songs to select from, but only 20 make our “Setlist”!

Glitch in the Episode

Great episode!!! But am I missing a segment? Because the episode go from introduction of the guys in the conversation to the main decision.

Danny Ukes ,

The best in the business

Jon “The Vernomatic” Verno is quickly becoming my go to source for all the latest heavy metal news. Every week the show takes us on a journey through metal history up to and including todays most relevant information about our favorite bands and artists.

Where other podcasts lack, Metal Mayhem hits the nail on the head with insightful interviews, entertaining content blocks, and most importantly, charisma and excitement. Truly one of the best productions in the metal podcast world, can’t stop recommending it. Keep it Heavy!

Suzy Hammer ,

Wowza!

Super informative metal show! Never realized Chris’s career was that involved. Great questions and banter with the Vernomatic and Metal Walt! Fan for life of the podcast. Produced to perfection. Keep up the great work! Like Vern says, “keep it heavy”!
