  1. I saw Clockwork Angels Tour twice, 9 shows into the tour and 5 shows from the end. Same setlist both times, with no Limelight and no Manhattan Project. I would've loved to have seen it, even as a show opener. But Snakes And Arrows tour happened when I was in grade 12 and mom didn't want me to miss any school at the time, so it didn't happen. Damn parents looking out for my life.
  2. Read Salem's Lot and possibly The Stand before hitting The Dark Tower. Then Blast through those 8 books. As you read further into his catalogue later on, you'll realize that 90% of his books have some sort of connection to The Dark Tower.

     

    I've got Bag of Bones, Lisey's Storey, Just After Sunset, Skeleton Screw, Nightmares & Dreamscapes left to go. Hopefully be able to get them all finished before The Institute releases in October?

  3. I lost faith in Dream Theater after the mess that was The Astonishing. After reading the last few pages here, it looks like I'm going to have to grab this on payday.

     

    Wait, all it took was one bad album for you to lose faith? Maybe you were already soured on them before that, I don't know. I wasn't enthusiastic about this album at first but as bad as the Astonishing was, I never lost faith they could deliver again. This album went well beyond expectations though.

     

    Losing Faith might be a little strong. But I definitely stopped listening to these guys after that album came out.

  4. Are any of you guys going to any of these shows? I'll be at the Vancouver date.

  5. I messed up the previous thread and set it as a Poll-only topic. I've been relistening to early Floyd before I see Nick Mason, in march, and Piper At The Gates of Dawn, and Obscured By Clouds have both started growing on me. I'd put them up with the big four.

  6. I've been wanting to say that I was at the "R40 Live: 40th Anniversary Tour" in Vancouver, and I got setlist G. Before going to it, I wanted, and would've liked either setlist E, or setlist G. For hoping, it was E because I liked to have seen, and heard "the Camera Eye" instead of "Yyz". "the Camera Eye", is, and has been my third favorite Rush song. I got "Jacob's Ladder", which is, and has been my second favorite Rush song behind "Xanadu". For performing "Losing It", I was hoping "Ben Mink", would've been live to perform it, with Rush, like he did on their "Signals" c.d., and album, and he was. I thought it was an outstanding concert. With a few other song picks, and choices how I would've done for it, I have posted it in, and on another thread. I think, and feel it's hard that they won't record, and make music, and tour together anymore.

     

    You are very fortunate to have seen that concert.

     

    I like The Camera Eye very much too. There's lots of live versions of it on youtube.

    Losing It, Natural Science, Jacob's Ladder, Hemispheres, Double Necks in Xanadu. What an epic night that was.

     

    :o My friend, how are you doing??? I haven't seen you in such a long time. :hi:

     

    I'm good, not posting here much, since they've quit performing and writing new music.
