  1. Can confirm it was recorded on 19th Oct 2002 at the Quebec City gig - the same gig that video footage is taken from. I think in general Geddy's vocals were very strong on the Vapor Trails Tour, I'm guessing because they were so well rested after not touring for 5 years. https://www.rhino.com/product/in-rio
  2. Always thought was the best version of Vital Signs. Geddy's really on top form vocally here I think - something about the way his voice cuts through on this recording really gives me chills.
  3. Thanks for the kind comments everyone, really appreciated!!
  4. Hi all, here’s a video of myself recording drums for my band's cover of ‘Where’s My Thing?’. I recorded the drum track in one take and included a little drum solo in the middle as a tribute to The Professor. This was quite challenging to track as Peart played in such a hard hitting, intense way - harder than how I naturally play. But it was rewarding experience and I’m very proud of how it turned out. I hope you all enjoy it, RIP Neil.
  5. A trend I've noticed is that you post random questions once in a blue moon about subjects pertaining to the R30: 30th Anniversary World Tour video. Hopefully you can be more active and contribute something to the forum. Damn, passive aggressive much! Do you really think such a post will encourage pasqua to post here more? I don't think so.

  7. I don't know if it's a bit cheeky to post this thread here, so if any mods want to move this to a different part of the forum then I totally understand! I play drums in a band called Kyros and today we released a covers album that includes 2 Rush covers - Force Ten and Where's My Thing?. The Where's My Thing cover I'm particularly proud of as it was intended as a tribute to Neil. I arranged it myself, making it similar to the live version and included a (short) drum solo in the middle. The aim for the solo was simply to sound as much like Neil as possible and I'm very pleased with how it turned out! It was for Neil in his honour and I hope people here enjoy it. The drum performances for both songs were done in one take and I will be releasing a video of the drum recording for Where's My Thing soon!
  8. I consider the Rush synth era to be 1982-1988.
  9. One Little Victory < Far Cry Ceiling Unlimited < Armor and Sword Ghost Rider > Workin' Them Angels Peaceable Kingdom > The Larger Bowl The Stars Look Down > Spindrift How It Is < The Main Monkey Business Vapor Trail > The Way The Wind Blows Secret Touch > Hope Earthshine > Faithless Sweet Miracle > Bravest Face Nocturne > Good News First Freeze (Part IV of "Fear") < Malignant Narcissism Out Of The Cradle < We Hold On Vapor Trails wins 8-5. No surprise as it's easily the album I prefer of the two.
  10. These are the Rush albums I've obsessed over the most. I guess that makes them my favourites! In order of when I discovered them: Moving Pictures Permanent Waves Power Windows Hold Your Fire A Farewell to Kings Vapor Trails
  11. ^^ this. It was hard to find 3 that wasn't filler. I do enjoy Ghost of a Chance a lot too - it very narrowly missed out on being in the top 3. Then the title track I also like quite a bit. As for the rest of this album, I don't think any of it should have made the cut. Imo it would have been better off left as a 5 song EP - I'd rather that than a full length album half full of filler.
  12. Top 3: 1. Armor & Sword 2. Far Cry 3. The Main Monkey Business ^These tracks are amongst the band's all time best imo. Unfortunately there are also a few songs on this album I would consider to be filler. I honestly feel the album would have been much stronger if these songs had been cut - it would have still clocked in at around 40 mins. Filler: The Larger Bowl (A Pantoum), Spindrift, Bravest Face, Good News First
  13. Top 3: 1. Bravado 2. Dreamline 3. Where's My Thing Filler: Face Up, The Big Wheel, Heresy, Neurotica, You Bet Your Life
  14. Some good stuff but definitely not his best work vocal-wise. What's interesting is (at least to me) how much better his vocals sound on Caravan and BU2B (recorded before the Time Machine Tour) than the other songs (recorded after). You can really hear how much his voice deteriorated on the that tour. Still not a bad performance but a little shaky at times.
