The book is popular amongst my friends. I have downloaded it but not read much. My understanding is :rush: music is prominently mentioned in the book. The book is now being made into a film by Disney and helmed by Spielberg.

Have you read it??? Do you think Disney will sprinkle :rush: tunes aboot the soundtrack? If :rush: music is absent from the film will that taint the film in your opinion?

Haven't read it but I know of it.

Oh, "yes" I think there will be some Rush in there somewhere. But it'd likely just be lightly sprinkled in there...similar to how Tom Sawyer was in Small Soldiers. John Williams is providing the soundtrack so I can't imagine there being too many Rush tunes in it.

I've decided to finish the book in case the movie doesn't have enough :rush: references in it.

Not a comic book guy.
Not a gaming guy.
Not a Disney.guy.


And gratuitous Rush references usually don't do much for me either. (see Kevin J. Anderson)



I do have Red Star: Sacred Cities but I never read it.

The trailer for the film has dropped. I was worried the band was not involved. A little more than halfway through a smile came across my face.

I read the book 2 months ago so I'm looking forward to it. I hope they leave in the planet of Syrinx

It's really kicking my ass. I'm having a hard time feeling the rhythm correctly, which is a frequent occurrence when I work on Jeremy's songs. I'll get there, though. I've already laid some some "Distant Early Warning" sounding stuff.

The trailer, like the novel, is packed with pop culture references...to the main character's love of the prog band Rush.

Jeremy has a song called, you guessed it, Ready Player One, and I'm doing the guitar tracks for it.

Alex Geddy & Neil are characters in the book -- helping he main character win the game.

There's an entire chapter devoted to 2112.

If Rush is not in the movie, we boycott.

If you weren't 13 in 1980-1985, not sure the books resonates.

I played Tomb of Horrors, Tempest, and every video game in the book -- with QUARTERS.

Just like Rush is the soundtrack to my life, the book is about a massive video game in a future dystopia. The game represents the fondest memories of my youth.



Like listening to people who weren't even born in 1977 talk about what Star Wars should and shouldn't be... it's not your movie.
