  1. As much as I loved the Beatles' documentary...boy would I love something like that from Rush. I can't get enough of the "behind the scenes" stuff with them.
  2. Should Putin be regarded as Nostradamus' "unknown" antichrist? He certainly appears to be headed in that direction.
  3. I figured "The Rush Forum" would be high on his list, I just didn't expect him to wreak havoc with it before the invasion started. No problem access this post, by the way, from the notifications link. And, obviously, I was able to post to the site.
  4. I'm located in Northeast USA and haven't been able to access posts in about two weeks. Site takes a little longer to load once I login and I can view new content listing with no problem. When I click any post in the new content listing; however, I get a "404 not found" message after a minute or so. This happens on all my devices and has been going on for several weeks.
  5. Thank you! I had 5 or 6 more questions, but he elaborated A LOT in his replies. One of the things I didn't ask is what was his recollection of the late 70's when apparently the rise of punk meant the death of prog. I was only 4 at the time, but recently I've been reading that prog was a victim of its own excesses. I wanted to hear his thoughts on that, but it would have been another 15-minute reply! :D Yes...he seems very cerebral when he answers questions, bordering on philosophical.
  6. Top-notch interview Rod, great work. In particular, I loved your question relating to the term "album" and how that has much less meaning now than it used to in terms of the listening experience.
  7. I just watched the latest episode of Hard Knocks on HBO and Rush is mentioned. See if you can spot it.
  8. I've always heard that a boat is really "just a hole in the water that you pour money into". I'm assuming that pinball machines are not great investments either.
  9. Just wave your hand and say "this is the pinball machine you're looking for". Works for me every time.
  10. To me, a band that no longer regularly releases albums and is also missing members of the band who were integral to the success of that band is covering themselves. Basically, when the band is the band pretty much in name only, they're a cover band.
  11. It's a great album in the fact that Yes has single-handedly come up with a cure for insomnia, hysteria, anxiety attacks and the dreaded 4 hour erection.
  12. Mike Oldfield - Amarok (to me, this album is just about perfect) Supertramp - Brother Where You Bound (No Hodgson on this one and the result is a, dare I say, ballsy album. Unfortunately that era was over as soon as it began) Yes - Drama - The band were between heydays and were without Jon Anderson, so they had a chance to write an album without his new age influence Blue Oyster Cult - Club Ninja - I think many fans as well as the band themselves don't give it the time of day, but I think it's got some really good stuff on it.

    Rush and Rand

    The lyrics are probably some, if not all, of the reason that Neil referred to revisiting Rush's older songs as "looking at his old elementary school drawings".
  14. I lost interest in the Scorpions way back in the mid 80's after they released "Love at First Sting". I'm a big fan of the Roth era and Jabs up to that point in time. Just yesterday, I gave both "Blackout" and "LaFS" a listen to see if my opinion has changed at all on the latter album. It hasn't. Once they realized they could be a mainstream act in America (and I'm guessing this was because of the success of "No One Like You"), they were never the same.
