I have a question.  

Why isn't there an official tour video release between A Show of Hands and Rio?

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 !!!!!!

It IS a beautiful song.
I agree.  It is one of the few Rush songs that could make me cry.  Isn't that the mellotron at the end of the song?

Did they ever do it live?

Yes, that is a Mellotron ... and sadly, no, Tears has never been performed live -

I have to get my Rush book out.  I thought I remembered Geddy, or Alex or Neil, saying that it was too hard to do live, but listening to the song, my untrained ears do not detect anything difficult about the song.  It sounds like a straight acoustic song.

For anyone who loves Witch Hunt, Tapehead2's video from the TM tour (4-10-11) has a close-up of Neil doing the beginning of that song.  I'm grateful to her for keying in on him because it was interesting to watch him.

When did Neil take his Freddy Gruber lessons?

This thread makes me happy.  -----------> :)

I have to finish cleaning our mansion. :unsure:  Then I shall come back and gush some more. :codger:  

When it comes to Rush, there is a lot to gush about. :wub:

But before I forget to mention this:  GM, you might want to watch the video of LaVilla from that Time Machine boot I was watching last  night.  Geddy turns around and faces Neil at one point in the song for about a minute or so and does some - erm - interesting movements.  :cool:

Which bootleg is that?

I like it when Geddy does interesting moves ;) :lol:

I think it replies your question:

" In 1994, Peart became a friend and pupil of jazz instructor Freddie Gruber.[3][4] It was during this time that Peart decided to revamp his playing style by incorporating jazz and swing components. Gruber was also responsible for introducing him to the products of Drum Workshop, the company whose products Peart currently endorses."

I love Rush!  Even Test for Echo (which I give a lot of grief on this site) is better than 80% of other music out there.  The only problem I have is how some people don't recognize that they are the greatest band to ever walk the earth.  Do these people have malformed eardrums?

I have no idea.  I was wondering the same thing lately and kind of asked the same question earlier in this thread.

No accounting for taste, I guess.  For Pete's sake...some people think Pink Floyd is good! :outtahere:
