It seems that every edition of the YBG gets better and better, You expressed so beautifully what many of us felt as we were at what might possibly have been our last Rush show.

As much as I will remember some great performances over the years it will be the fans that I will remember the most.

Awesome writing, just awesome!  Your story is your own and yet captures the special moments so many of us have had with the band and each other. Loved this!  :notworthy: :notworthy:  (And I'll bet you still miss that Datsun 260 Z!)

As a previously silent YBG fan, what better way to finally speak up than with this great piece. Another scroll-bar-stopping read. Here's to more tours and more installments of the YBG!

Nice to read and see the pics. I think for the many of us who could not be there we imagined it was something like the way you wrote it up.

Quote

On The Rush Forum, the predominant era of choice is basically the Terry Brown catalog. No doubt. I enjoy it like everyone else, but it was before my time. I had to go back in time to appreciate it after I cut my teeth on the synth era.
I reflected on the Synth era as you wrote aboot it. In some ways we have something in common although I'm a few years older than you. Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures were magic as it was happening but they were turn table experiences. I wasn't old enough to get to a concert till Signals. Next was Grace Under Pressure, the Synth Era born, I was growing up with the band as they "matured". It was during the Synth Era that RUSH concerts became nearly annual pilgrimages.

Maybe I place to much personal bias on the Synth Era over rating its significance but I felt it deserved more coverage on set one.

Holy Gefilter, Duff. :smoke: :clap:

Really touching transcription man. :notworthy:  That was speaking straight from the heart, just like I prefer.
I felt almost like I was there, when I read it. :)
