Oh well. Doesn't affect my enjoyment of the music and video. Negative Nancy is not in my circle of friends. Sort of shocked that now, Optimistic Olivia now has a "retired drummer" for a Dad; her/their needs are greater than ours; individually or collectively. Peart Family FTW.
Besides, how can RUSH top Clockwork Angels and their next R40 tour?
CA + R40 are their epic grapefruit/honeydew...I am both sated and satisfied.
The Garden can grow from all of their seeds and crops and harvests, bountifully.
I have come to terms with it, saying. No offense, either-- friends...
We got lucky or, fortunate with Vapor Trails (and it's not all about Neil, or is it, but w/e).
Two more increasingly EPIC albums S+A, CA and you cannot beat Headlong Flight, BU2B, The Garden. Why try?
These guys are my ABSOLUTE favorite band ever, since 1983, and I can only applaud/thank/relish/enjoy/re-listen/re-listen/listen again to all of the (live) albums.
ATWAS, ESL, ASOH and on, plus the numerous bootlegs I acquired in the '90s.
Well, I only care to share how they've influenced me, and I think my happy gravy boat is full, or at least complete.
Circa 1997: <Well what were our briefs and griefs then...hurry up Neil..?>
NP's been thru hell and back, and back.
My suggestion: Put Clockwork Angels on, all the way to The Garden, Philosophize?
Hugs, guys...sorry for the rant...
My sense upon seeing the Vancouver show this summer was that they are so done.
But you know, R40 Anthem is on Blu-Ray right now...gotta run...
