  1. Hey guys! It has been a while since I've posted here, I have just been busy with life. But I have come to share a game that my friends and I often play. I am 22 and live in Indiana and go to a commuter college here. Luckily I have a group of friends who are ALL into Rush. Like, all 6 of us could fire off a top 10 favorite Rush album list on the spot. Anyway, we have come up with a game. The game is imagining that you know a person who has never heard Neil Peart play drums. The purpose of the game is to describe the most important thing that you can think about Neil. It's the one thing that you can tell somebody about Neil. It has to be one thing though. It doesn't have to be one word. So the game would look like this... Me: Neil Peart game, lets go You: uhhhhmmm, high-hat stops Me: Cymbals You: Oh God, lyrics... Yea. So, Neil Peart game, lets do it

  3. I enjoy the Synth period just as much as the era of epics. I especially love Power Windows and Hold Your Fire. Beautiful melodies. I am a huge fan of Alex's arpeggios tying Geddy and Neils romping around together. Geeze, in there between Geddy constantly being on the keys, he plays that damn bass so well. Just romping around those chord changes like a boss lol

Last Spring Break I drove all the way to mexico with just Disk 1 of DS. I couldnt believe i forgot all my music! I must have listened to that disc 200 times all the way through. I memorized what every fan screamed and when they screamed it. I memorized everything. Now whenever i listen to different versions of the songs i always expect the fans to scream what they did in DS disc 1. I devoloped almost a spiritual connection with that music. I fell in love with it. I appreciated Rush more than i ever did before. I couldnt have made it through that vacation without that disc. Thank you Different Stages disc 1. Your sounds will be imprinted on the back of my skull forevermore. Sounds like my trip to NY for the week last winter. I coulda sworn I packed a travel cd case full of cds, but the only one that I fought I had with me was what was in the cd player when I boarded the train. Needless to say, I dont think I can listen to Yes's Fragile without thinking of NY. Hooooowwww caaaannn ttheeee wiiiind with its arms all around me! I feel lost in the citaaaaayyy.

I have a feeling I'll be doing a lot of reflecting on my own life when I hear it, which is always insightful.

However, I wouldn't call Rush "prog pioneers". If Rush aren't prog pioneers, I have no idea who is! King Crimson, Genesis, Frank Zappa, Yes. Rush played as much of a role as these bands or more in the development of prog , but they came in a little too late to really be called "prog pioneers."
  7. QUOTE (danielmclark @ Feb 26 2012, 11:00 AM) QUOTE (Phantom @ Feb 26 2012, 06:19 AM) Neil's drumming has become less agressive as he's aged. That's true. But I'm not sure it's simply a matter of age. I've always said that Alex doesn't get the same kind of recognition that EVH, Satch or Vai gets mainly because he plays within the structure of the song. He only plays what the song demands, and doesn't get flashy or ham-fisted. Neil, I think, is very much the same way. Even in their younger days, when he was more aggressive, it never overpowered or detracted from the song. The songs they've written, pretty much since the 80's, have been less proggy, less agressive on the whole. Neil's drumming has reflected that. He still displays tremendous talent, but it's not as aggressive as it used to be, IMO.

LOL I'm in Noblesville. Nevermind. Why you a Hoosier fan? Hoosier basketball is on the fast track back to prominance. West side Indy!
  9. Thought to myself one afternoon... "Surely there has to be a Rush message board!" Here we are today.
