That's a very good album. I love the cover. It reminds me of a 1960's concert poster.
Yeah, you're right. Has that whole psychedelic vibe.
Regarding "Feedback",I like their interpretation of "Crossroads." Here's a live version with a nice segue to "Limelight."
Say hello to Rash. Funny video that played during there time machine tour.
I adore Rush and am sad to think I will probably never see them live. Damitt.
A friend of a friend was selling a bunch of records. Turned out he had joined Columbia house record club and was selling the records he got to buy pot. I bought 13 albums for 20 dollars. These were my first records. 2112 was easily the one that I came back to over and over again. There is never a time I cannot listen to 2112. I can even play it from memory on drums. It is one of Peart's easier pieces. Love this album!
As much as my kids love Rush, my boys constantly make fun of me for liking The Trees. My wife jokes about how heavy handed it is. I love that song and this may be my favorite Rush album. I miss the side long pieces.
Seems normal to me. Especially if they're heterosexual, not that there's anything wrong with that.
Looks like they recorded this as a live jam and added the story. Neil super focused
Alex is on fire in this video. Opens with an instrumental Cover of Paint it Black
Edit: This is concert footage from Sarstock. Benefit that was played after the Sars scare. AC/ DC and Rolling Stones and others were also there. If You listen until the end it says ladies and gentlemen please welcome AC/DC. Imo they should have opened for Rush
A normal band would require 4 if not 5 people to play this . A joy to watch them perform this seemingly straight through with no edits. Geddy's bottom on his double neck is a six string. So he sings ,plays bass, keyboards and rhythm guitar.
@Crazy Gnome, did you ever see the CBC television/streaming series Crawford?
He does have an enjoyable bit part in the series. Sort of an unkempt, sloppy CEO that fits him perfectly.
I’m such a fool for never seeing them live.
That’s one of very few regrets in my life.
No i haven't. Will check into it.
This is good news. I saw Marco play with Steven Wilson’s band - he is excellent. I hope this becomes a full project with album and even tour.
It may be hard to find, but, I don't know if it may have also ended up on Netflix or something. It's a Canadian broadcast, and I recorded mine over the antenna. (So it has commercials...I need to get into the video editor to remove those for permanent storage. )
Same here, although ticket prices were kind of absurd (like they all are these days for major tours). It's a matter of deciding to take my youngest to see Rush, or having food for two weeks. (And given how Ticketmaster has been under scrutiny lately...the less money we feed them, the better.)
Still, how cool would it have been to get a good seat on their last tour?
My consolation prizes are the concerts released on BluRay.
We've only recently gotten into Rush here, over the past three or four years (I had a couple of compilations prior to that--we actually discovered the full Moving Pictures via playing Rock Band and that kind of sparked the whole thing), so only their last one or two tours would have been on our radar.
