    Le Studio

    They could have at least turned it into a Rush museum!
  2. I've been wanting to A/B them, but haven't gotten around to it... Just got the new version, and the 2112 40th disc in the mail, now would probably be a good time!
  3. If I remember correctly, the black chrome Slingerlands were retired after the Hemispheres tour, and he had the Rosewood Tama's for the PW tour. In fact, I think the promo pictures of them in the studio for the recording of that album had the Tama's...
  4. Any more I download what's out there, and listen to it...if it's worth it, I purchase it, if not, the discs get tossed into a box, never to be heard again. Found an Mp3 version of the discs online, and the only thing I've heard so far that's worth it, is the alternate 2112 from Massey Hall. Not a bad version! (and this proves to me that there are alternate live versions of things out there in vaults....so RELEASE THEM ALREADY!) The "cover versions" are ok, and yeah, I agree, the Steven Wilson version is great. So I will pick this one up at some point after the holidaze are over.
  5. That's odd... I've always liked both bands, and get into moods to listen to them occasionally... Not one of my go to bands when I don't know what musical mood I'm in, but they make the serious rotation about once every two years (when I get into one of those...start with the first album, and listen to each successive one until I get tired of them, or get to the last one) I pulled Point of Know Return and Two for the Show over the summer...
  6. Watched it last night (Got it at Best Buy for $21.49....should have set it up to ring up at $21.12...THAT would have messed with fans! hahaha! ) anyway... Good stuff...Wish it was longer, though, you can only imagine how much footage was probably taken and edited down? Wondering how many concerts were filmed like that and shelved for various reasons? (and yeah...I totally miss Media Play! used to go there and spend HOURS!) (and a lot of cash)
  7. It was a "bucket list" of tunes I never got to hear live...so YEAH!!!!
  8. Yeah....The past ones are occasional reads...they feel like the dive reports I put up for my friends when we go scuba diving...it's my "dive log" entry, but some of it's funny and the guys I dive with are entertained... His road reports are interesting at times...but get a little...blah blah blah....
  9. Well, the thing is, I have all of the official releases, but my bootleg collection fills a CD binder, and a few spindles! (not much to look at)
  10. Pretty much how I got to see it....We were in Indianapolis for a few things...(convention, DCI pre-lims, etc.)(Chromey wasn't there yet...saw him another trip) Went up to South Bend on our way home to just go see Notre Dames campus, then drove across Ohio to Cleveland, and hit the RNRHOF on our way back... It was interesting from an "old" perspective, but the artists that were in over the later years, don't justify calling it rock and roll.... Ok, Pink Floyd had stuff in it, Springsteen was the featured artist at the moment, They had Queen's stuff in it, etc. But the fact that Michael Jackson was in it and some of the other bands, make it a "eh" sort of museum...
  11. Ok, just heard, and got a ticket to Dream Theater at the Hershey Theater on October 8th!! (ten minutes from my house) That'll be a crazy day, I need to be up in State College, PA for the Penn State-Maryland game at noon, then I have to come home for that show at 8:00pm! Guess I'll sleep in the next day.....
  12. I've never seen Rush in a general admission show, so nothing crazy went on
  13. Hmmmmmm..... In the End can ..er...um..... turn things around...so to speak,
  14. New World Man.... Nothing like a quicky!!
  15. You know, I've given that a LOT of thought, and when I think of it, I always think of the Yes show I saw last summer and how badly Alan White played...he definitely affected the show, and it was disheartening to see him like that. When I went to see them a week ago, Alan wasn't playing due to some injury/surgery that he's had, and they had a replacement. It was a much better show... (granted...Yes has had a revolving door of characters over the years, so it's not like it's three guys and three guys alone, that make up the band) Saying that, if you went to a show, and Neil wasn't playing up to his usual standard, wouldn't you be extremely upset? I think it's good that he knew enough to get out of it while he was still on top, and not try to come out and fake his way through a performance..... I fully agree, but believe the end was hurried. The only tour in decades without a second leg, and that happens to be their last tour ever? He was more than capable of doing 30 more this year, based on his 2015 performances, giving the international audience a chance to see them one last time, and a handful of final shows in US/Canada. Yeah, THAT'S probably what actually upset me more than anything else. I figured that they'd have at least another leg of the tour, then have one massive blow out show in Pittsburgh or somewhere with some sort of significance... Saying that, if you went to a show, and Neil wasn't playing up to his usual standard, wouldn't you be extremely upset? I would not be upset if he was not playing up to his usual standerd. I would be upset if he was not playing with Geddy and Alex. Sorry....I'd be sick if I saw him playing the way I saw Alan White at that Yes show....and Alan doesn't play HALF as hard as Neil ever did!
  16. Yea, without this place, what would we do with all that spare internet surfing time? Watch cat videos? :pussy: We'd do it anyway....

  18. No.... I can't see it either... I CAN honestly see Alex and Geddy doing something at some point, and I honestly think that it will NOT be called "Rush", but they will work together....
  19. I wanted to go to that festival too. Rites Of Spring, right? Yeah "ROSFest"!
  20. Oh...and there were the guys online once that whole thing opened up...Scarred Records, Prism Records...
  21. Paid $25 for the single Rush boots. $40 or $45 for the doubles. The interview/radio show CDs were about the same I reckon. Usually more for vinyl. I think the few places I used to go had most single disc boots for $30...some for more, and the two disc sets for usually $60. If there was the odd chance there was a THREE disc boot those were about $75-$80 for the most part.... I forget what some of the larger sets (Pink Floyd's, and Zappa's) cost.... probably about $100. -$150. (the one Floyd was a six disc) I never bought from stores (unless I found them in the used bin for much less) My main source for the stuff was record shows. I only bought Rush, Dream Theater and Fish/Marillion so fortunately (or unfortunately) it was only 1 or 2 disc sets. Yeah. I kept my boot "buying" to like Rush, DT, Zappa, Pink Floyd, and anything overly proggy (Yes, ELP, etc.) But we didn't have MANY shows in my area (at least that were advertised, I usually found out after they happened) but we had a few shops that had stuff... once we for a "Disc-Go-Round" it was open season, and I think I doubled my collection....most of the guys that worked there had no clue that boots were a little more rare, and they just thought "ok, not on my list of stuff to mark up so..." and I picked up a bunch of different odds and ends.
  22. I was also at this show in Lancaster on Monday night and, I agree, that they played well. I was glad that the crowd was respectful during some of the quieter moments and let the band play without background noise. I hadn't seen Yes since around 2009, but I had to go see them perform all of Drama (or risk my 1980's self finding a time machine in an alternate history and travelling to 2016 to kick my ass). We probably passed each other on the way out as I skipped the encore also. I'm going to see them again on Sunday at the Sands event center (I bought those tickets before the Lancaster show was added). Yeah, highly possible! I caught Steve's intro, then decided that the rest wasn't gonna be anything over the top...(and I never was a Starship Trooper fan...) I'm going to be in Bethlehem on Sunday also, but I'm going to Dutch Springs scuba diving (and the guy I dive with isn't a Yes fan...)
  23. Crazy stuff! Got an email about it this morning.... Maybe Rush will consider something massive like this at some point
