Very enjoyable TM, thanks for sharing. Your article made a difficult hour pleasant. I was trying to get my daughter on her favorite ride earlier this evening, test track epcot. Alas, a bad t storm the size of epcot shut the ride down. While on line waiting for it to reopen, enjoyed reading the story of our fearless travelers, to see the men of willowdale, perform their last major show. It Was a sunny hot day here (its a steamy MOIST hot heat) until that evening storm. 100 degree heat index, woo hoo! In no way does it smell like fall here ;)

From Maine to Fla in three weeks, keeping me from the Forum (that and $1350 air fare!). But got to live part of the LA Finale thanks to the great fans posting here, your story TM and also Periscope!  So happy for all that went to see the awesome conclusion to an amazing Rush tour!

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.
I get that. My connection to the 70's was interesting. I really good friend of mine, who also happened to be my drummer, told me straight up that he couldn't listen to the synth era...said it was "unclean". He exposed me to 2112, Hemi, and AFTK's in ways that I didn't expect. Then we started playing some songs as covers and that's when my love for the TB era took off.

I've been on the YBG train since 2013, though more of a lurker. I used to be pissy because you had a misleading title once

Tombstone, I was expecting some weird ass shit to happen but instead I simply read a thoughtful, personal Rush odyssey. Good stuff TM.

P.S. I can understand where that Yosemite Sam comment was coming from.

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.
Hey buddy...it was awesome...and once again, thanks for the ride to the airport. Meeting you was a highlight of my tour experience

I would have gave anything (except sexual favors) to meet Bubbles. Loves me some TPB.

One of my wireless routers has the network name of BubblesShed and the other (my backup) is Sunnyvale Trailer Park. I'm sure the neighbors in the subdivision are trying to figure out who the hell is BubblesShed?
