You could say that about almost every progressive rock band ever. And the genre of fusion. There isn't much of a grand explaination aside from the fact that the members of such bands tended to not be guys who cared about being fashionable, or catering to a dancing crowd, or general extroverted "rock star" personas. It's not hard to imagine why a young woman would be enticed by Jim Morrison humping the air but not be enticed by Robert Fripp sitting there in his glasses.
Sworn affidavits or it did not happen...I used to work with a woman, quite attractive too (think young Suzanne Somers crossed with Meg Ryan) whose favorite band was Rush. She went to see them and came in the next day complaining that the set list was “too heavy on the radio hits” and naming off some deeper cuts she was hoping to hear.
I was impressed with that, but when she said Alex’s solo in Limelight that night wasn’t his best she’d heard him do it live, my jaw dropped.
The trucker hat worn by the bass player of Triumph is known to have repulsed women in Milan....while the band was still in Canada!!Which band attracted less women...Rush or Triumph?
