The last time Rush appeared on television, Gerald Ford was in the White House and a gallon of gas could be had for around 50 cents.

Then the band closed the show with a bracing performance of their 1981 hit, “Tom Sawyer” whose expansiveness was part of a running gag on the show. Check out the sweet Les Paul Custom Alex Lifeson uses on the performance!
