  1. Patsy Cline, XTC, Avenged Sevenfold - Oh God http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJ9ehvomknw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xf58TEMm8Rw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXeirwIW5N0
  2. 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.
  3. From USA Today Singer Sarah Dash, part of Labelle trio known for hit 'Lady Marmalade,' dies at 76 I was only aware of Sarah Dash from her work with Keith Richards in the X-Pensive Winos until now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzaGj96p8Q0
  4. "I have a violin that I'm screwing around with." I wonder if Ben Mink is possibly giving Alex violin lessons via Zoom. Ben mentioned in his recent CBC My Playlist interview that he gave Stompin' Tom Connors lessons in the late 80's. Stompin' Tom was trying to learn the Hank Snow song 'I'm Moving On' on violin.
  5. I used to know of an individual who works in corporate management. He claims to have been a live sound engineer in the late 80's to mid 90's for some big music acts. Then he reinvented himself at age 30 and took business courses and now works in the corporate world.
  6. Posted on Rushisaband.com Rush Cinema Strangiato Director's Cut available for streaming on demand for limited time Oct 1-10
  7. This should be of help here. Please read thoroughly everything on the above page, which should answer your question.
  8. Eric Carmen, Elton John - Never Gonna Fall in Love Again http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-a2BuF1yF4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKIheQ65OMs
  9. I'm going to throw in two Canadian classic soft rock artists which don't get mentioned a lot. Ian Thomas and Marc Jordan.
  10. I always think of the 1986 Amnesty International concert where The Police handed their instruments to U2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RWbh9KKkdI Bono joins The Police on the last song 'Invisible Sun'. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6HI7KOr4-Y
  11. I should add that The Doobie Brothers had a blues-rock phase and then a R&B soul-pop phase. The soul-pop phase is what the 'soft rock' is based on. 'The Doctor' was the band's late 80's comeback song where the band has returned to the blues-rock phase but with more clean production. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kx62FxXe-Rg
  12. Today I saw four of these compilations albums (noted here) on what's considered 'classic soft rock'. As I'm browsing the track selection on each of them, the majority of songs don't fit into the above mentioned category. How is 'Heat of the Moment' by Asia, 'More Than A Feeling' by Boston, and 'The Doctor' by The Doobie Brothers considered 'classic soft rock'? This made me think of Entre_Perpetuo's poll threads on what songs are really considered 'power ballads'.
  13. Dave Mason, Phil Collins - Only You Know And I Know http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cn0tnfv0KCc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRFyFCFxCcM
  14. Thanks! Interesting to see. I wonder why the Aston Martin didn't sell? He doesn't say if it didn't meet the reserve price or if something else happened?? We don't know. Gooding & Co doesn't release that information. So unless one were watching live they wouldn't know. I tried looking for a live broadcast I couldn't find one. According to Melody Maker, bids did not meet reserve.https://melodymakerm...or-3-9-million/ The Aston Martin did eventually sell according to here.
  15. Those two things (Big Book of Bass short and the Permanent Waves Deluxe ad) are more or less past promotional items anyway. The Big Book of Bass short is below. http://vimeo.com/347098867
  16. Lindsey Buckingham has two different songs ('On The Wrong Side') with the same title. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lgfo0i1Filo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-IKgoPjv00
  17. I'm going to use two Canadian examples here with Bachman-Turner Overdrive and Rush in relation to this topic. Both bands were signed to Mercury Records, but each achieved success in a different way. Members of both bands get mentioned in these article pieces and a 2002 video interview below. Creem - March 1976 RUSH Pebbles & Bam-Bam In Alphaville Lethbridge Herald - October 1976 Rush draws on reading material Sharp Magazine - December 2012 How Three Nerds From Ontario Created A Musical Empire, And Why 2012 Was Their Greatest Year http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hocv8EB_vk It's kind of hilarious that Randy Bachman has praised Geddy, Alex, and Neil as individual musicians, but not the music per se. Alex is featured in Bachman's documentary as noted here. Perhaps critics will give praise to music that's easily accessible, but other music isn't given that praise.

  19. Keith Hampshire (born in London England and then emigrated to Canada) is known for his cover of 'First Cut Is The Deepest' by Cat Stevens. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feJtp3dNsJ4 The song was Hampshire's biggest hit in Canada, which rose to #1.
  20. BNL utilizes Geddy's Taurus pedals on their latest album and now they want to utilize Geddy. It's a similar thing to when Alex used to borrow Geddy's amp and then he borrowed Geddy and the rest is Rush history.
  21. Why would anyone pick that song as a power ballad? Whoever chose this song needs to have their ears cleaned out and their brain recalibrated.
  22. I'm glad there's CanCon (Canadian content) songs on there that I can choose to vote for. Although I wish 'Beautiful Goodbye' by Amanda Marshall made the list. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyyOtpY0iNY
  23. I wasn't aware that John Fogerty's single 'Jambalaya (On the Bayou)' from the early 70's is a Hank Williams song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HZiN0OsUAg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0B5BR0xrXaU
  24. I discovered and started listening to the Rush - Complete Rockline Broadcasts 1984-2008, which is posted here. From listening to the first Rockline episode, baseball player Warren Cromartie is mentioned. Cromartie and the Montreal Expos are thanked in the Signals album's liner notes. Then later on Geddy made a vocal appearance on Cromartie's AOR band Climb (formed with David Rosenthal of Rainbow) on the song 'Who's Missing Who'. It turns out Cromartie is an accomplished drummer as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FA4UMn2sjtw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oPzPipPJDI Then later on, baseball player Randy Johnson is also a Rush fan and later becomes friends with the band. He was the official R40 Live 40th Anniversary Tour photographer (noted here) and also plays drums. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4WEanRsUZc What is it about baseball players who play drums as their chosen instrument? What's the connection?
