I just popped in here to gush over Rush.

Here is an especially fierce version of The Camera Eye.


:hi: I'm so happy to see you!  Where have you been??

Thanks for gushing with me!  Remember the good old days when we'd all gush together on a regular basis??  :wub:


Edit:  GM, I'm going to see if I have that Hershey show.  I'm always looking for good versions of the song.

I was at that Hershey show.  If there's a really good audio bootleg of it I'd like to know!

I haven't been around because frankly, this place has been a bit of a bummer ever since the end of R40.  I still love to gush over Rush, though!

Can you manage a 36-second video?  You won't be disappointed by this short clip entitled "Geddy Having Fun!!" :D

No. Can't watch anything anymore.  Comes back as "error" all the time,  But the good news is that next week (hopefully) Comcast will be coming here and I will have high speed.

I'll look and see what I have for that show tomorrow and let you know if I have anything.

Thank you!

I look forward to posting videos you'll actually be able to watch :D  Definitely facilitates the Rush gushing.

Since you can't watch the videos, I'll post this:

That's from a bootleg.  I was up in the rafters for that one, trying not to go crazy when I couldn't get up and bop to Leave That Thing Alone.

Ahhhhhh, I love :rush:!

I had a dream the other night I was at a show up in the rafters.  In the dream, i had to take an elevator to the 8th floor to get to my seat, but I snuck away from my husband and went back down to the first floor and found a vacant seat in the first row and sat down.  But, Rush never came on stage.  It was so sad.  :(

Aww, that is sad.  Let's distract ourselves by doing some gushing.

What are some of your favourite Rush small moments?  Here are two I can think of off the top of my head:

Entre Nous at 1 minute in, Alex's guitar behind "brief eclipse."

The Camera Eye at 4:52, Geddy's bass accents immediately following "like an English rain."

Did I miss the gushaholicfiestaparty?

I don't even know where to start in the gushaholicfiestaparty.  Maybe Cygus X-1? It's perfect from start to finish. I love the spacy intro all the way to the "Sound and fury drowns my heart....every nerve Is torn apaaaaaart... part.  :)  The whole song is fairly simple but just full of power and craziness. It's way up there with Xanadu as one of my favorite Rush songs ever.

They put out so many great songs since 1974. A rotation so vast I can listen to them almost daily without having to over plays songs. It's smart music not just songs aboot scoring chicks, pubic lice and farts.

You are so right, John Rogers.  :codger:

Not a public lice among the vast discology.  :unsure:

I'd like to gush about the R40 Tour. How did those three guys manage to pull of a tour that amazing? The setlist, the lightshow, Geddy somehow singing those 70's songs. Sure, Alex was a bit sloppy on the tour but the man does have arthritis. Another thing that made the tour so great was the reverse chronological stage and all the different instruments they used. How does Geddy afford all those basses? If that was there last tour, what a way to go out.
Edit: I forgot one last thing: "f*ck you, puppet!"

I'm going to gush over Tears

We all know that 2112 is one of the greatest albums of all time, and the first thing that comes to mind with 2112 is the epic, Ayn Rand influenced title track that launched one of single most identifiable logos of all time in The Starman, brought Rush back from the dead and forever after gave them free reign in the studio ..

But 2112 is not just one song

Tears is the perfect Side Two song - understated, emotional and very moving and I wish the ending was only the beginning -

TEN MORE MINUTES OF TEARS !!!!!!
