  1. One of my best memories with rush and my son was taking him to see his first concert at age 6 at Montage Mountain in Scranton on the S&A tour. Everyone was so cool seeing a (then) 6 year old at a Rush show, with people high fiving him and asking him what his favorite song was. While he didn't make it through the whole show, we did have a great time! A lifelong Rush fan was born that night, and he DID make it through the whole show the next summer at PNC Bank Arts Center, because "I have to see them play YYZ"
  2. Ah, quite to the contrary, that is an excellent story! I can say that Rush has been a part of some great moments in my life with my kids, so your story is not lost on me!
  3. My wife wasn't a fan, so I just took her to a show on the S&A tour - instant conversion to a fan!
  4. Have to agree - a true masterpiece! I can hear so many different, yet very subtle, layers in this song that it almost seems like they took a "less is more" approach to creating it. My favorite Rush "ballad" since Tears.
  5. Oh yeah, forgot to mention the awful flanger effect on the bass - WTF?
  6. UUUGGGHHHH...... Didn't want to jump in on this, but my iPod just play the single version of Caravan - what a difference. I didn't really notice much of a difference until the instrumental section. Everything is SO clear on that version, but when I played the album version it sounded like all of the instruments (except the snare, which really pops) where played through some kind of filter. Not trying to be a hater, but why the Hell did they remaster something that already sounded great??
  7. Let's not forget the folks that are forever predicting the end of the band

  10. QUOTE (Ghostnotes @ Jun 16 2012, 12:56 AM) In a recent interview with Neil, he stated that their agenda was busy for the next 2 years or so. Yes, Most likely touring, anyone remember a 2 summer tour recently?
  11. The Garden should be next but unfortunately it'll never happen. (Rant On) Rock radio has gone corporate and is absolute shit, It's now all about trends and focus groups and commercials. That's why Nickelback is still relevant and somehow considered a "major" act - pure shit! BTW, since the "merger" of Sirius and XM, that's turned to shit as well. The dummies running radio seem like they don't understand that there's that thing called a iPod that they're competing against. What happened to the days when a jock could actually play what they wanted? (Rant Off)
  12. QUOTE (Ancient Ways @ Jun 13 2012, 05:54 PM) Are you serious? I also hear he used to be into Ayn Rand and may have some references to her work in some songs. Stop it!!! That CAN'T be possible!!!!! You mean that Neil wrote a song (or epic) about a totalitarian society run by autocratic leaders that decided everything for the people????? I'm in shock.....
  13. QUOTE (Gompers @ Jun 13 2012, 06:23 AM) QUOTE (RUSHHEAD666 @ Jun 13 2012, 05:47 AM) Wow you guys!! Has this ever been discussed on The Rush Forum yet after all of these years???? I was at my local used record store as usual going through all the used cd bins as they were playing "The Sound Of Silence." For some reason my brain picked up on the last part of the song and the lyrical content hit a nerve!! Check this shit out my fellow Rush fans!! Did Neil rip off Paul Simon or is it merely a homage or coincidence? "The Sound Of Silence" "And the sign said, the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls And the tenement halls. And whispered in the sounds of silence." "Sprit Of Radio" "For the words of the prophets were written on the studio wall, concert hall. And echoes with the sounds of salesmen. Of salesmen. Of salesmen." WTF?????? Silly RUSHHEAD...of course every seasoned Rush fan knows about this. Especially us old-timers.
