  1. Middletown is one of my top 5 Rush songs, so no contest here.
  2. That's pretty cool of Jimi to take a break from his coma to teach this guy how to play!
  3. http://www.magmamusic.org/en/index.php I know there have to be some fans here so I wanted to make sure everybody saw it! I saw them in NYC last year and it was amazing! They are hitting Philly this year, for apparently the first time since the '70s. I just bought Philly tickets this morning and am debating going to the NYC show as well.
  4. I don't think it's at odds with anything. I think that is true, but that he also probably had to be really pushed into even agreeing to that.
  5. I get the feeling they know and, have all either agreed to address the topic in this fashion for the time being, OR do not like the answer and are being vague in the hopes that he does change his mind.
  6. I think Vapor Trails is great lyrically and musically but I agree about Test for Echo! On my way to work this morning Carve Away The Stone came on and it's been a long time since I heard it. I forgot that it's actually a really good song with an awesome bridge and some really horrible lyrics :( And honestly I've come to the conclusion that some of his later lyrics aren't bad, but just bad in the context of a rock song if that makes sense. (some are obviously just bad though! (wish them well (cough )))
  7. I always think Geddy wrote Different Strings and then check the liner notes and realize Neil wrote it. Or maybe it's the other way around!
  8. When he has the headphones on I believe it means he's playing to a click track. I know they don't typically use one but on songs with extended sequenced keyboard parts, like The Weapon, I think tehy're pretty much required. You can't change the tempo of the keyboard part so if Neil is even slightly off it'd be a train wreck! Nowadays he wouldn't use headphones for these songs because they can run the click to his in-ear monitor.

    Weird...they play both "Freewill" and "Limelight" in the ad for R40 The commercial for the current tour obviously has to have footage from a previous tour, because it hadn't happened yet! I don't think the people making these commercials are going so far as to make sure any song featured is actually being played on the current tour!

    This takes me back to when labels spent time, money, and effort marketing bands!
  11. Dave Grohl would be a great fit. And I bet Dave Grohl agrees! If I was Dave Grohl I would put Foo Fighters on hold for a few months to tour with Geddy and/or Alex. My guess is we get a solo album from Geddy, and he will tour for it. I think Alex will be featured very prominently on the album, but it will still be billed as a Geddy solo album. I don't think Alex will tour with him. I can't see Geddy not doing the vocals. He will do just fine if he doesn't force himself out of his current range. I have no insider info, that just seems like a likely scenario!
  12. fraroc, it is very clear, based on the way Geddy & Alex are talking in interviews, FOH Lights' statements about how everything went down, etc., that there is some tension between Neil & the other 2. You're right, there is nothing wrong with Geddy & Alex wanting the band to continue. They have all said all along that "there will not be a bad guy" when somebody decides to call it quits, but that doesn't mean they can't be disappointed, upset, or hurt when it actually happens. They may even be, like FOH Lights said, more upset about how Neil did this than anything else, and again, there is nothing wrong with that. The thing is, it actually effects their lives. It has no effect on you, and they are being a whole lot more mature about it than you are! They're almost behaving like... adults. Crazy, huh?
