:blah:   Folks, that was Mr. JD from the Cincinnati area where Rush got their big break.  He says he always called it a ding.  Anyone have a response to that?

I'd like to phrase my response to that in the form of a question, Alex...

JD, you live in the Cincinnati area?? I'm in Dayton.

I drive about halfway to Cinci for work every day.

West Chester?

All right, I guess it's a little less than half way- Franklin. (But I live a little farther away than Dayton proper, too).

:D

Uh-huh.

More importantly, it's when all of the other music stops so that the 'ping' can be heard exceptionally clearly.

Indeed!

Could it be evidence that he is sometimes here among the rest of us on TRF?

I wonder if he voted in this poll?  I had him pegged for a pinger anyway.  :)

I don't think the camera was on him during that part in my Tulsa video because I am sure I would have found it very funny to see Geddy do it.

I'm not sure what he did at other shows, but Geddy is a multi-talented pinger. In Columbus he mouthed the ping, while in Buffalo he used his right hand index finger. People all around me laughed.

A multi-talented pinger?  That's impressive!  :)

You have a video of the full Tulsa show?

I was watching the St. Paul show this morning...and I know Houston is out there, too...but I didn't know if there were a bunch.

Yes, and it is excellent.  It includes the videos that were shown throughout the show as well.  I understand it's on youtube.

Thank you! I'll search for it. I have a good audio recording of Tulsa, but I haven't seen the video.
