    The 6/14/08 show at the Wachovia Center. I met up with RushRingleader and we got second row seats. It was amazing. I got Alex's side. Alex mouthed something to me! Whatever he said, I just like melted. When Geddy came over to our side during his YYZ solo, he mouthed "That's what I'm talkin' about!" Hands down, the best night of my life~

  1. One thing that really bugs me is when people are trying to have conversations, talking loudly over the music. I saw Tool last year, and I was in the nosebleeds, and everyone around me is chatting the breeze, while I'm trying to listen to my favorite song (Pushit) live.
  2. Bravado is definitely one of my favorites. It was pivotal in getting me through some rough times. The R30 version is quite good, but when I finally got to see it live at the show I attended on the 2013 leg of the CA tour, it was taken to a whole new level. It put me in a trance basically :P
  3. Rush Tori Amos A Perfect Circle Led Zeppelin Pink Floyd Puscifer Garbage Tool The Cranberries Alanis Morissette Honorable mentions: Thirty Seconds to Mars Paramore Aerosmith Kiss Tegan and Sara Heart
  4. Jonesy is the better keyboard player, but as an overall bassist, gotta go with Ged. But man, JPJ is my second favorite bassist behind Geddy. I watched Celebration Day on Christmas and I sat there for two hours with my eyes open wide and my jaw on the floor. Such a shame they've (*cough* Robert *cough*) declined to tour one last time, but that's a whole other can of worms.
  5. I think, regardless of how many songs they get, "YYZ" should be played. It's commercial enough where people will know it, and it's technical enough to show just why they deserve to be in there.
  6. I find them to be the worst they've ever done. The Gah-nomes were the biggest culprit. Not funny at all.The first set intro video is tolerable. It was gonna be hard to top I Still Love You Man anyway, but jeez.
  7. What makes more sense to me would be ending the first set with Limelight, bumping out Far Cry.
  8. 1.Time So glad to see this one on so many lists. I'll never forget the first time I heard it. The clocks came on and I was like "whoa...". And the lead in that song is one of my all time favs. 2. In The Flesh The harmonizing guitar riffs are gorgeous. 3. Sheep Prog rock genius. The climactic ending

He blew his voice out in the 70s. It's 2012. I think the fact that he can even attempt to sing these songs (with limitations) is impressive. He could try to just belt out Black Dog and it would be an absolute mess. I'm glad he adjusts to his comfort level and still sings it with feeling. This is a good point too. A proper singer, like Elton John, knows his limitations and adjusts his vocals accordingly. Almost no one over the age of 60 sings as good as they did at 30. Very few exceptions to this, if any. Most are lucky if they only lose a step or two. Glenn Hughes comes to mind as a pretty resilient "golden throat", and Ronnie James Dio still had a very, very apt voice as well. They are out there, but they're pretty rare. While not quite that age and a bit of a different sub-genre, freakin' Tommy Shaw of Styx still has some impressive pipes. Just some credit where it's due. Tommy Shaw still kicks butt vocally. Most folks here don't like them, but Don Henley of The Eagles hasn't lost one iota of his vocal ability and dude's 65 years old. Robin Zander

It could be good stuff. Plant is a cranky old fu*k that can't sing like he used to . They will make a shitload of money 1 last time and that is why he gave his "ok" to release it . Page, Jones and jr should find a singer and go on tour with a diff name , i would be there in a min THIS. I remember when they were toying with the idea of using Steven Tyler or Myles Kennedy. Personally, I think Ann Wilson would be the best choice, but that's just a pipe dream
  11. I was hoping they'd drop it, but eh, the breakdown in the song rips, so why not.
  12. That actually sounds like a good idea. Early in the tour, same venue, get both setlists, in their country (YYZ for that matter), ect.
