  1. The Coliseum is a hotel next to Rexall place. Reviews seem good. I'm serious guys. Calgary booed a S&A song that they had never heard before. It may have been more of an "uhhh?" than a full on boo. But it didn't sound good. I even recalled my gilfriend being shocked who is a huge Rush fan. She thought it was because of the delayed CD release which I fully agree with. I will go to my grave thinking it was an akward moment and they will never come back to YYC again. I hope I'm wrong.
  2. QUOTE (GeminiRising79 @ Jun 18 2012, 04:03 PM) I'd like to see Rush this coming tour, but will not be buying tickets until reviewing the setlist. Anyone else doing the same? No, I bought the tour package for myself and my girlfriend. Rush will not be around for ever (live), so get it while you can... price is irrelevant when it comes to art.
  3. If you're talking Tour de force, Neil has already admitted that he'd never do an album like Hemispheres again. Which is good, because La Villa Strangiato broke my balls But I have to say 2112 is no slouch either. Finally, Farewell to Kings has some chops that were difficult to play for me to this day. Spirit of Radio (Jacob's ladder in particular) is challenging. Just goes on and on. Best doesn't end. It's more like "what's new" with Peart.
  4. Don't let Animal burn to death. Don't watch this video.
  5. I've seen a few good rush concerts in Calgary, but the last one (Snakes and Arrows before the album came out -- no fault of their own) actually had boos from the audience. I almost fell over and died. And I knew they wouldn't be coming back. Since I have to go to Edmonton for this, does anyone have comments on the Coliseum since it looks like the closest play to stay? Thx.
  6. I knew there was a subconscious reason why I logged into this site today Happy B-Day and keep on rockin'/bikin'!
  7. Yes, cut out soda -- especially diet. It makes a huge difference. Google Clint Eastwood on soda. He has some funny comments about it, and never drinks it.
  8. I'm just going to reply to your original post here, although it looks like the thread gets pretty long and you may have solved your issues I've been playing drums for 30 years, and once Rush got into my playlist I had a lot of frustrating times. However, they were challenging and absolutely worthwhile from a learning perspective (I'm self-taught as well). At the end of the day though I realized that music was not my "job" and would not be my "job". So playing Rush became a lot more enjoyable. I think you're a lot like me -- you put pressure on yourself to perfect every song that you can . It's an admirable trait, but if you are not doing it as a career you need to cut yourself some slack and enjoy the experience as an artist.

  10. Like my own, Alex's bald spot just gets bigger. What should he do about it?
  11. At the end of the day it's all about art. And there are not enough artists in this world. Feel free to quote me.
  12. Hi. I still can't play Neil, but I'm trying. Hemispheres is a pain in the ass.

  14. Agree with Maven ^^^ We saw the show last year in Vegas and this one was really quite extraordinary. They must have had their Wheaties.
  15. Here's a quick video showing a nice segue from Alex into Closer to the Heart. These are greats seats and we've had them before (although I have to admit I'd like to sit Geddy side once in my lifetime )
