What was the first true synth based Rush song?

Postby JoeClark » Wed Oct 11, 2017 11:12 pm

Even though the keyboards were introduced to Rush in 1977, In my honest opinion the first true synth-era Rush song was The Camera Eye. No bass guitar is played at all in the first minutes of the song, only keyboards. Many times in the song, Ged switched between keys and bass. Of course, this makes Witch Hunt the second synth based Rush song. Overall, I think those two songs, Camera Eye and Witch Hunt, was what set the stage for what Rush was going to be for the rest of the 1980s, with songs that prominently feature Geddy Lee playing both bass and keyboards in the same song.

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
