Well, I for one thought Ged sang very well on the last tour. He surprised me with how well he managed many of the songs, both old and new. But Closer To The Heart was tough...he really couldn't quite get that one anymore. His voice was definitely in decline...and Alex flubbed a note in his solo at my show (not that I cared, but I happen to remember it because it was rather obvious). They were never perfect live, but they weren't at the top of their live game when they went out. Much as I wish they could've made one more album, I agree with Neil that it was time to stop touring.

Only ever had a problem vocally with the second set of the last tour. Before that I think he still brought it.   On the last tour the problem became hitting their standard as band which didn't happen nearly as often as it did previously.

It's funny you haven't listened to those live discs because I hardly ever listen to the studio albums -- it's mostly the live stuff. I can't remember the last time I played CA or S&A on their own.

That's what makes listening to Rush so special, isn't it? We all find our favorite mode.

I do remember, though, that Geddy's voice sounded fine -- the benefits of the multiple takes and mixing board. Maybe I'll play them again tomorrow; I'd hear some songs I haven't in years because they didn't get played live!

I've almost always reached for the live discs over studio (Listening to Rush In Rio now actually which I almost never do on CD (Doesn't sound as horrible as I remember it although I always prefer the DVD from this show)
