  1. So, so sad!! There simply are no words.....
  2. Just saw YES's "The Royal Affair" tour last night with guests Asia, John Lodge of The Moody Blues, and Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy. I wrote more about it here... http://www.therushforum.com/index.php?/topic/108010-the-royal-affair-tour-feat-yes-asia-john-lodge-of-the-moody-blues-and-carl-palmers-elp-legacy/page__hl__+royal++affair++tour
  3. Found a great pic of a Red, White & Blue drum kit which I displayed in my "Happy Birthday U.S.A. from Canada" post http://www.therushforum.com/index.php?/topic/106306-happy-birthday-to-the-usa-from-your-friends-in-canada/
  4. Happy July 4th to our friends south of the border, eh!!!
  5. Just popping in after long absence to post something "Rush" that may have not got a lot of play south of the 49th parallel. It's in my new topic post "Rush encounters of the cute kind": http://www.therushforum.com/index.php?/topic/103530-rush-encounters-of-the-cute-kind/page__hl__+rush++encounters
  6. WOW!!! There's a new RUSH documentary coming out next month! Check it out... http://ultimateclassicrock.com/rush-time-stand-still-movie/
  7. Started new Forum topic in an effort to encourage people to post Rush cover video links, good or bad!!
  8. Won't say anything other than I just had to post this...
  9. Recently found some articles on Alex Lifeson which especially appreciate his underrated abilities! I posted the links in the forum: http://www.therushforum.com/index.php?/topic/99200-alex-lifeson-articles-which-especially-appreciate-his-underrated-abilities/
  10. Today, Apr. 1st 2016, marks the 40th anniversary of the release of "2112" and, in honour of this occasion, I have posted a collection of links to "2112" articles, etc... http://www.therushforum.com/index.php?/topic/98577-apr-1st-2016-the-40th-anniversary-of-the-release-of-2112/
  11. “Hanging stockings lit by flickering torchlight, Joyous faces gathered in the glare…” Merry Christmas to all of RUSH Nation… and to all a good night!!!
  12. Just got the R-40 blu-ray for my birthday and, despite having seen all the sneak preview stuff on-line, as well as all the videos posted from various dates on the tour, there's just nothing like finally having the real mccoy! Awesome!!
  13. Rush sighting... Episode 4, Better Call Saul, 5:47 mark: Rush poster in the background of younger Saul's pad in Chicago!!
  14. The boys are finally touring again!! Too bad Geddy's aging vocal chords means they can't do consecutive nights anymore... no more 3 and 4 night stands in Toronto. I guess we still lucked out, though, because we're the only 2 nighter on the schedule. June can't come fast enough!!!
  15. Just started new topic "My introduction to "prog"! It would be cool to hear about other people's experiences in this regard as well.
  16. Just found the longest list of Rush tribute bands I've ever seen - 313 in all, and of course there's undoubtedly a bunch more not registered there --- http://rushtributes.comxa.com/tribalpha.htm
  17. Just picked up the book "Rush FAQ"... looking good so far!!!
  18. Happy Birthday Geddy!!! No doubt you're with family having some fine wine, etc. Mazel tov!!!
  19. Came across a Q&A with Chris Squire on official "Yes" website where he mentions having been considered to produce Grace Under Pressure! It's the second entry... http://yesworld.com/2013/07/ask-yes-friday-5th-july-2013-chris-squire/
  20. Ultimate Classic Rock magazine's "Hall of Fame" Finals. It's down to RUSH vs. KANSAS. Vote before June 1, 2014 - 11:59PM Eastern. Go to http://ultimateclassicrock.com/rush-vs-kansas/?trending

      Update: RUSH won with 50.8% of the vote to KANSAS's 49.2%. Of course, apart from the fact that these polls are just time fillers completely at the mercy of whoever happened to surf by during the polling period, the "elimination" format (much like a tennis tournament) makes such polls all the more meaningless. STILL, it's nice to see our boys get some "cred", especially given the inclusion of the ubiquitous AC/DC.

      Also, it was the elimination format that was used when our own fair-haired boy Lerxt claimed the NUMBER 2 spot in Guitar World magazine's recent "Greatest Guitarist of All Time" poll, coming 2nd only to Eddie-I-did-too-much-coke-and-now-I-have-a-severe-personality-disorder-Van Halen!
