Enough questions...hope to see you around, and I look forward to getting to know you! -Carrie
I first heard "Time stand still" in 1997 and fell in love with Geddy's voice, but for some reason I didn't pursue it (I was in a Beatles period then). Last spring I went to Stockholm for the Time Machine Tour concert and was totally blown away. I usually don't even enjoy live music due to a lot of reasons, but this... I lack the words to describe it.
Favourites (if I must!) include Time stand still (still!), Marathon, Red Sector A, Afterimage, Xanadu, La Villa Strangiato, Subdivisions, Cygnus X-1 Book 2: Hemispheres, Jacob's ladder, Lock and key, Nobody's hero, Workin' them angels, Dreamline... And the list goes on!
What about you?
Well, I've liked Rush my whole life, and wanted to go to a show on the Roll The Bones tour, but my friend and his pals went without me, even though I told him to get me a ticket and I'd pay him. I went off to college and lost track of Rush for 19 years, until they came to Syracuse last year. I went and absolutely fell in love. I went back for another show this spring (it was supposed to be two, but Toledo got postponed and I couldn't go). Hopefully I'll have better luck next tour!
I'm a synth period fan, but any Rush is fabulous! Marathon is my favorite song, and Power Windows my favorite album.
