I didn't include Summertime Blues for obvious reasons. It's a tough one, isn't it!?

Well Subdivisions is my favourite song...

But I think 2112 and Animate serve better as openers.
I mean, the intro to Overture is awesome...



I'm going to have to say 2112.

That's a tough one indeed, Rush always starts and ends their albums VERY strong, IMO.

I went "Spirit of Radio" in the survey.

I voted One little Victory, it's just an awesome opening to an album. I nearly chose Spirit Of Radio which ranks a very very close second.

Yep, good album OPENER but the position it's been placed in shows on this tour is very poor. All they have to do is swap this tune's position with Limelight and they've nailed a perfect show.

Geddy is my favorite bassist, he is just so incredible, how fast he goes. I like to play bass, guitar, synthesizers vocals for my band, Unknown. We should go touring in about 10 months (delay), but we need a new drummer. Alex lifeson is a great guitarist, and neil peart is the greatest drummer ever!

Tough choice...

I voted Hemispheres.

A mixtape or CD of all the Rush openers would be a great idea, but one would need more than one tape or CD. wink.gif
