  1. 12 years old, must have been 1976 or 77, I skipped school and went to a buddies house and was hanging in his room when he pulled out the 2112 album, just after trying a little for the first time. Shudder to think of my 12 yr old doing this but thats how it happened. I was hooked on RUSH. I was playing the drums at the time so hearing the stuff Neil did really blew me away. Most people don't realize the odd time signatures he uses throughout the songs. I heard it and freaked! "How does he know where HE'S at and how does the band stay with him?"
  2. I say paulp fiction gets em. as long as you can verify he has transpo to the gig. Good on ya!
  3. I really dont get what's so important about them playing JL. Its a good song and all but what is the big deal. There's no major solo in it. Its a thematically boring song, zero to think about.
  4. its all good! just havin fun!
  5. just watched a video from the other night and its normal tempo. yay!

Time to schedule a meeting with my Brazilian counterparts... Looks like a video won't be shot in WPB now! Damn!
  7. the guys stated in that Q107 interview they were taking a break during the tour and have been doing that for quite awhile actually. one week breaks after each month are common.

What are you talking about? Exactly. Whut? I think he might be talking about their live engineer, he would handle some of the triggering. He probably had a keyboard or a computer to do that, or both. A lot of bands have a guy that just sits there every show triggering things. You cant do it automatically because not every band plays the songs at the exact same tempo every night. People that dont know much about technology have this perception that these guys are just wizards up there doing everything themselves. There are people behind the scenes helping them. I cant remember which tour it was, may have been RTB or CP, prolly CP. Not really sure. IDk somehwere in between 88-92? Miami Arena. We were sitting lower bowl about 15 rows up towards the back looking down on the mixing console. Before the show I noticed a Keyboard at the mixing console. Wondered if it was just for sudio tests or whatever. During the entire show this dude stood there and played almost all the keyboard parts. Geddy even introduced him about 2/3 of the way through the show. I don't know if his rig died and they had 'quick fix' something or if the whole tour was done that way, but it was there and it did happen. I have seen every show in South Florida since 82-83 Signals tour. Never has Geddy introduced anyone in the crew let alone someone playing keys other than he. Not meant to be rude but WTF are you talking about? What show? Never happened. Not saying the guy was not doing what you said...but Geddy never introduced anyone...even the band. I can stipulate that _pete_ knows his shit, and clearly I'm no dolt as I was the first one to state that Alex and Ged use triggering to play pre-recorded tracks. I've watched them do this for years and have been impressed with their skills. The amount of preproduction no small feat. You all can say whatever you want, it's all fine and good. I can tell you I've been a musician since I was in middle school and I know a few things too, and I know what I saw. I watched the guy for nearly two hours at the console. I know what he was doing. Say what you want. It won't hurt my feelings or change what I saw. I'm not dissing the band, I love this band, just stating what I saw.

There are lighting controllers that are small keyboards. I think this is what you may have seen. They have never had anyone offstage playing musical parts. The band is adamant about that. They do all the triggering and playing. They did have a crewmember (Jack Secret) offstage changing the sampler banks and loading programs but that is not the same thing. never say never

  11. He's hitting a trigger so when he steps away the effect keeps playing. He also can play simple note progressons with his foot pedals and frequently does this. It really takes a lot of talent and concentration to do this. Alex does this too with his effects pedals. Its better than when they had a guy at the sound board in the back of the hall playing keyboards, like they used to do.

    Rush plate

    BU2B 4LERXT LIMLITE PRESTO MVNPIX LUVRUSH RUSHFAN sorry, didnt see 6 letter limit. we have 7 letters here in FL, I think
  16. funny how its on yourtube but not on HK's website!
  17. that's too cool. someone spent a lot of time to give the finger to all the "I want Jacobs Ladder or I'm not going" whiner babies.
  18. I for one am also tired of the bitchers and whiners who are upset this or that won't be played. "Quit Your Bitchin Babies!" Go have fun!
  19. Bringing my 12 and 14 year old boys to their first RUSH show (my 12th). They've never been to any live shows and are only casual fans of RUSH but I'm pretty sure this will seal the deal! http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q224/briremo/Iphonepics092.jpg
  20. +1 for WPB baby! There is no way they are not going to record this tour. Look at the cost of this stage and set! You can't let that go to waste for 40 dates.
  21. I've seen other bands with shirts in the $25 range and some others in the $60 range (Spyro Gyro). I will NOT be buying a tour book because all the photos are from the last tour, which is asinine if you ask me. I know it would be impossible to sell pics from this in this tour's tour book, but I want pics from this tour.
  22. QUOTE (red sector animal @ Jul 1 2010, 09:31 PM) I hope next they come out with the "Rush punks you and you'll take it" tour.. Setlist1: Rivendell High water Dog Years All of COS Tai Shan Hour break for soup and salads Then Warpaint Faithless Red Tide Nobodys Hero Virtuality Ceiling unlimited Tears The color of right. Oncore: Roll the Bones -the song- complete Cold Fire Good news First. Then they take a bow, give the crowd the finger, and take off...
  23. no it was at the very end as the music is fading out. Heard on the Youtube post.
