  1. Today marks six years that she of the awesome avatars has been gracing this forum with her presence. Happy anniversary, Janie. I will make the ultimate sacrifice by listening to Spindrift in your honor today. I'm not quite sure why you hung around this place for four years before I even came on the scene, but perhaps you knew that better days were yet to come.

  4. PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The excitement over Kenny Chesney Saturday proved to be a little too much for some people with the night ending with several fights and numerous arrests. Police say 49 people were arrested inside Heinz field during the concert, with another 24 arrests taking place near the venue on the North Shore. Police say most of the arrests were for disorderly conduct, public intoxication and aggravated assault. Additionally, police say at least 10 large fights broke out and 150 people were treated for various medical needs. Another 45 people were taken to medical facilities as well. Kenny Chesney fans also left a wake of trash following the concert. Large groups of tailgaters left behind a sea of debris in the Heinz Field parking lot. http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2013/06/23/chesney-concert-ends-with-fights-arrests/
  5. GREAT BROOK FARM STATE PARK, MA—In a surprising development that has confirmed a number of longstanding local rumors, authorities discovered the 32nd Regiment of His Majesty's Royal British Army still fighting the Revolutionary War in a small wooded area outside of Carlisle, MA Monday. The disoriented foot soldiers—who in the spring of 1776 survived a barrage of Patriot cannon fire at Dorchester Heights only to become lost during the subsequent British retreat—were found by park rangers marching in the direction of a nearby Price Chopper supermarket. "Keep ye muskets at the ready, men," Col. Edmund Thorpe of Leicestershire was heard shouting to his troops as they prepared to cross an empty stretch of Route 225, which Thorpe claimed was a primary gunpowder supply route. "There is danger in this valley, for the traitorous coward Washington and his militia are said to camp just beyond that ridge." Area folklore and occasional reports from nearby RV parks have for years suggested the presence of a ragged, hardy band of British soldiers still remaining from the Revolutionary War. But what was once dismissed as legend has now been verified by Walter Carp of the Merrimac Valley Historical Society, who identified the 32nd Regiment after watching its members struggle to scale a razor-wire fence near a local recycling center. "That's them, all right—the old 32nd," Carp said. "They fought valiantly at Breed's Hill, but they never seemed to have the right coordinates when it came time to track an enemy. Looks like they might be a little worse for wear, the poor fellows." One of several Redcoat campfires recently discovered in the Carlisle area. The regiment's last mention in historical records came in March 1776, when the soldiers garrisoned a small fort near the Concord River and awaited orders from Gen. William Howe, then commander in chief of British forces. Though regiment scout James Winthrop reportedly estimates that Howe is no more than 80 kilometers from their location, public records indicate the general has been in London since his burial there in 1814. "Howe cannot be far," said Winthrop, pointing to a faded map sketched on worn hemp paper. "No more than a fortnight away." After receiving intelligence on the foreign military unit, the Pentagon immediately dispatched F-15s from the 104th Fighter Wing of the Massachusetts Air National Guard, but the planes were called off after British foreign secretary David Miliband assured officials that the redcoats did not represent the United Kingdom. While the 32nd Regiment's numbers have dwindled over the past two centuries due to illness and desertion, the remaining holdouts have vowed to continue fighting until the colonists' siege of Boston is repelled. They then plan to rendezvous with the King's 14th Regiment at Fort Ticonderoga, near the current site of the Diamond Run Shopping Mall, to restock on hardtack and tobacco. "'Tis been a long and bitter struggle with our foolhardy American cousins," 2nd Lt. Henry Bertram said during a brief pipe break near the soccer field of Washington Elementary School. "Dearly do I miss my fair wife, Abigail, and our precious babe, Elizabeth, safe at home in Leicestershire. Why, my daughter must be tall as a barrel by now!" Having survived the brutal winters of 1831, 1907, and 1999, most members of the regiment appear to believe that the worst stretch of the war is over, and that a full surrender of all colonial militias to the Royal Army is imminent. However, after spotting a number of new outposts last week in the growing Colonial Estates subdivision west of Boston, some have argued that the Americans may in fact be making gains. "Fie on your childish speculations," said Col. Thorpe, responding to growing concerns in his ranks. "I will not have this regiment torn asunder by such cowardly prattle. Somewhere in the Province of Massachusetts Bay there is a loyal countryman in whose farmhouse we can tarry for a night. Once rested, we shall strike a final blow to the treasonous Yankees." Added Thorpe, "By God, the jewel of the His Majesty's crown shan't be lost!" The last reported sighting of the 32nd Regiment occurred in January, when a number of Carlisle locals claimed to have seen the redcoats loitering in or around their backyards. "I saw some old guys in funny costumes messing around near my toolshed about a month ago," said Bay State Electronics Supply employee Jim Hicks, 45. "But when I flicked on the porch lights they ran back into the woods." Local law enforcement officials said the soldiers are now considered suspects in a string of unsolved garden burglaries that began in 1838, as well as in the 2003 deaths of five Revolutionary War reenactors near Lowell, MA. The Centers for Disease Control is investigating whether the regiment may also be responsible for the recent deaths of several thousand New England residents from smallpox. http://www.theonion.com/articles/redcoat-holdouts-still-fighting-american-revolutio,2677/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=SocialMarketing&utm_campaign=LinkPreview:1:InFocus
  6. http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/06/19/193521377/country-singer-slim-whitman-known-for-his-yodel-dies Country singer Slim Whitman, whose yodel helped sell millions of albums in the United States, died overnight on Wednesday in a Florida hospital, his family tells the BBC. He was 90. While Whitman was at some point known as "America's Favorite Folksinger," he was actually far more popular overseas. As the BBC explains, in 1955 his hit Rose Marie became the longest-reigning No. 1 single until it was knocked off the perch by a Bryan Adams hit in 1991. The AP adds: "Whitman's tenor falsetto and ebony mustache and sideburns became global trademarks — and an inspiration for countless jokes — thanks to the TV commercials that pitched his records. "But he was a serious musical influence on early rock, and in the British Isles, he was known as a pioneer of country music for popularizing the style there. Whitman also encouraged a teen Elvis Presley when he was the headliner on the bill and the young singer was making his professional debut. "Whitman recorded more than 65 albums and sold millions of records, including 4 million of 'All My Best' that was marketed on TV." Whitman was introduced to younger audiences by the film Mars Attacks! Aliens were taking over the Earth when humans discover that Whitman's yodel in Indian Love Call destroys them:

  9. Possible spoilers about what they'll play at the induction ceremony. http://www.thespec.c...aciously-bitter Rush was just starting to hit its stride on the world scene when the critics turned on progressive rock. The year was 1977 and Rush, a band that started out playing blues-rock in bars around southern Ontario, had been increasingly influenced by British prog rockers like King Crimson, Yes, Genesis and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. You can hear it in the band’s 1976 breakthrough album, 2112 and, even more in the followups: A Farewell To Kings (1977), Hemispheres (1978), Permanent Waves (1980) and Moving Pictures (1981). But, in 1977, the critics, especially those from influential Rolling Stone magazine, turned their attention elsewhere. Suddenly, The Sex Pistols, Ramones and The Clash were the bands that mattered. Punk was good. Prog was bad. Rush, personified by Geddy Lee’s high-pitched shriek, Alex Lifeson’s multilayered guitars and Neil Peart’s sci-fi lyrics, was an easy target. Rush fans — millions of them — were stigmatized as pretentious mullet-heads who would eventually grow out of their adolescent love for Rush and discover the true meaning of rock ’n’ roll. Interestingly enough, the fans stuck by the Canadian trio. Those fans grew up into business executives, lawyers and surgeons who still cherish their Rush records. During the past few years, critical opinions have changed. Lifeson and Lee are hailed as virtuosos. Peart is revered as rock’s greatest living drummer. Their influence on modern prog-metal bands like Tool and System Of A Down has been enormous. The Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame induction committee, led by longtime Rolling Stone publisher Jan Wenner, was slow to react to this changing tide. It took 15 years of Rush eligibility and more than 40,000 signatures on an online petition before they finally came to their senses and put the band on the nomination list. On Thursday, long-suffering Rush fans will receive their pound of flesh when the Canadian rock trio is inducted into the Hall of Fame during a gala concert/ceremony at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles (broadcast on HBO on Saturday, May 18 at 9 p.m.). The band members say they will accept the honour “graciously.” Still, some bitterness lingers. “We were eligible for 15 years and it really didn’t matter to us,” Lifeson told The Spectator in a phone interview from his Toronto home. “We joked about it. In fact we kind of wore it as a badge of honour that there was a core inside the committee that did not want us in there. Some said, ‘Over my dead body,’ literally, ‘before Rush gets in here.’ Which is fine, they can do whatever they want. It’s their museum. “So at the end of the day, it didn’t really matter to us at all. It was kind of nice to have that controversy go away, to a point. But our fans were very insulted by it and burned by it. Now they feel vindicated by it. Certainly not all of them do. There’s certainly a lot of Rush fans who think we should ignore it. “But the proper, courteous thing to do is to go and accept it graciously, try to make everybody happy, move on and never have to deal with it again.” Lifeson is well aware of the history and believes there are many other bands still suffering from that ’70s prog-rock backlash. “There seems to be a sense of unfairness, not just about us, but the whole genre of progressive rock music,” Lifeson, 59, says. “You can argue that a lot of bands should be in there even before us. Deep Purple has had an incredible impact on rock music and so many bands, as has Yes and King Crimson. There’s a long list. The Moody Blues should have been in there. They were incredibly inspiring to a lot of young musicians.” Still, there’s little doubt that Rush has benefitted from the controversy. It’s been a rallying point for diehard fans and forced outsiders to have a second look. Rush seem to be more popular now than ever before. Tours are guaranteed sellouts — there are still some tickets available for Rush’s July 6 date at Copps Coliseum — and the Rush fans can now wear their T-shirts with pride. “It’s really changed,” Lifeson says. “When you go back to the ’70s, we had lots of very negative press. It was water off the back after a while. “Now it seems we can’t get bad press. I miss it,” he laughs. “It’s just so odd that here we are, 40 years later, and now we’re respectable. Everyone wants a piece of us. It’s very fascinating, interesting.” One of the things that are making the Hall of Fame ceremony more palatable is the fact that Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins will be at the podium introducing Lifeson, Lee and Peart. The two Foo Fighters were selected by the Hall of Fame to do the induction with the approval of Rush. “They are keen Rush fans and they understand where we come from,” Lifeson says. “In a lot of ways the Foo Fighters are similar. They stick to their guns and do things in their own way. Certainly Dave (Grohl) has come up for the last 25 years with that same sense of integrity and work ethic. They are terrific guys, the perfect choice.” Rush has been asked to perform some of the better known songs at the induction ceremony. “Tom Sawyer, Spirit of Radio and maybe YYZ,” Lifeson says. “They’ve asked us to do classic, kind of iconic songs and those three are the ones.” Will Grohl and Hawkins join Rush? Perhaps drumming with Peart? “There’s always a chance,” Lifeson says cryptically. “We’re working on some things.”
  10. http://www.cleveland.com/rockhall/index.ssf/2013/04/rush_canadian_prog-rock_band_r.html Rush fans had one word when they found out their heroes were to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Finally! And, it’s possible those fans can take some comfort in the knowledge that their fervent support may have had something to do with ensuring that bassist and vocalist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer Neil Peart will stand on the Nokia Theatre stage in Los Angeles on Thursday night. For the first time in the short history of the Rock Hall, an online fan vote equaled a single vote on the voting committee. Though the Rock Hall won’t reveal total numbers, at least a quarter of those who voted checked the box next to Rush on their online ballots. "I think the outcry or the outpouring of support of our fans was noted by the voting committee," said Lee, in a call from Beverly Hills earlier this week. The band has been eligible since 1998. "I don’t think it was enough to turn the tide, but the noise and support from our fan base made the people on the committee take notice." Ed Stenger, founder of the Shaker Heights-based fan site rushisaband.com, is convinced that the site he founded in 2005 "played a small role in their induction." Stenger, a website developer for the Marcus Thomas marketing agency, has more than 10,000 subscribers to his site. It’s a pretty safe bet that they voted. Rush fans are nothing if not loyal. "I think it’s a hard thing to explain," said Lee, when asked about the passion fans have for Rush. "A lot of it has to do with how they came to our music. "In some ways, people come to our music at a time when they feel they need something our music has in terms of comfort or inspiration," he said. "It’s kind of a life experience for them. It gives them solace when they need solace, and that forms an emotional bond with the music." Then there’s the rebellious aspect. "There’s also something of a guilty pleasure, with Rush not being a mainstream band overtly," Lee said. "I think within our fan base, it’s something of human nature to champion something not everybody has heard of." That’s the sort of intellectual analysis you might expect from a man who is one-third of what arguably is the most famous of prog-rock bands. Rush’s sound — a union of Lee’s melodies and Peart’s lyrics, aided and abetted by Lifeson’s multiple-personalities guitar — is hardly the one-three-five of a blues band [although they did start out playing blues, and have dabbled in it over the course of their career], nor is it the typical and constant four-four time signature of most pop and rock bands. Rush segues from time signature to time signature, from effect to effect in songs that force the mind to work almost as much as they do the heart. Tunes like "Subdivisions," "Tom Sawyer," "Superconductor," "The Spirit of Radio" and "Caravan" are almost musical lassos, encircling and ensnaring any who listen. Even drum solos — a staple of 1970s arena rock bands — take on a thinking-man’s perspective when Peart does them, employing everything from roto-toms to a glockenspiel to electronic drums. They’re not so much driving, chest-thumping exercises as they are hypnotic rhythms that morph into melodies. A long career with ups and downs Mainstream or not, since forming in 1968 and releasing its first, self-titled, album in 1974, when Peart joined, Rush has produced 24 gold records and 14 platinum albums — and three of those platinum albums have gone DOUBLE platinum, meaning sales of 2 million or more. "Our career has been up and down," Lee said. "We’ve been around for 40 years. Not every one of our records has been happily received, but we set a goal in music not to have a couple of hit records and retire. Sometimes, you take one step forward and two steps backwards." Part of that is the band’s willingness to adapt — in some ways — to the music of the day, and yet maintain its own signature sound. "You have to be willing to absorb the new music going on around you," Lee said. "That’s part of being a contemporary musician. You can’t stay trapped in the ’70s. We’re very much like sponges. You’ve got to pay attention to what’s going on around you." To that end, over the course of the years, Rush has dabbled in everything from the blues to new wave, and put its own spin on all. Lee, Lifeson and Peart probably could cover "Mustang Sally" and it would come out prog. And don’t put that past them. "We do all kinds of things when we jam," said Lee, laughing at the prospect of taking prog-rock fans on a ride, Sally, ride. "Sometimes, Alex takes the mike and gets really stupid." That’s one reason Rush has been able to stick around so long. "We’re lucky because we LIKE each other," Lee said. "We’ve stayed sharp in terms of our playing ability. The fact is we still write music the way we want to write music, and we still enjoy the creative process. It keeps us interested in it, and we try to make sure there’s a heavy quotient of creativity and fun in it." For Rush fans, the word fun may be a bit of an anomaly, given the band’s predilection for somber, complex music. But the guys do like to have fun, and not just onstage. Lee recently threw out the first pitch in the Indians season-opening win against Lee’s hometown team, Toronto. "It was a bit of a breaking ball, a fake curve," he said, laughing again. "But it WAS a strike." It’s not the first time Lee and the Indians have come together. Bart Swain, director of baseball information for the Tribe, is a huge fan. "When Mark Langston was with us back in 1999," Swain said, "he surprised me one night. He knew I was a big fan. I met him in the lobby [of the Tribe’s Toronto hotel] that night and Geddy Lee picked us up and we all went out." They headed for a place called the Orbit Room .¤.¤. which just happens to be owned by Lifeson. "I was there with Geddy and Mark and all of a sudden, Alex shows up, so it’s the four of us," said Swain, whose first Rush album was the seminal "2112," purchased when he was 17 in 1987, 11 years after its initial release. "It was the greatest night of my life." Lifeson picking up the tab was just a small part of the reason. "There was a house band called the Dexters," Swain said, "and Geddy and Alex disappear. Ten minutes later, they’re onstage, with Alex on guitar and Geddy singing and doing ‘In the Mood’ and ‘Working Man.’ It was beyond unbelievable." A ‘very odd’ omission Like a lot of fans, Swain wondered why the band wasn’t in the Rock Hall already. "It just seemed very odd, given some of the credentials of the bands that were getting in there," he said. "There are a lot of conspiracy theories," said rushisaband.com founder Stenger. "There was a certain camp in the Rock Hall nominating committee that just didn’t like Rush, and they’ve prevented them from getting in all these years." As for Lee, he couldn’t care less. Though glad finally to be in, he has his own way of looking at things. Perhaps it’s that the Rock Hall may be mainly for artists who’ve coiled their guitar cords and traded their drumsticks for knitting needles. "We’re still functioning — touring and writing," Lee said. "We’re still young." With no rush to quit.
  11. Thrashhits.com asks the question on everyone's mind http://www.thrashhits.com/2013/02/heavy-metal-sandwich-004-geddy-lee-of-rush/ The sandwich is possibly the greatest food-based invention. They allow us to eat and post on Facebook at the same time and absolutely anybody can eat them. Vegetarian? Put some more salad in. Belly doesn’t like wheat? Use gluten-free bread then! And everybody has a favourite sandwich. Even bands… One of the most enduring food items that the great city of Montreal has given to the world is its smoked meat. Who better to talk to about how it best goes into a sandwich than Geddy Lee of legendary prog metal heavyweights, Rush. (Nobody, that’s who.) Hello there, Geddy Lee of Rush. Tell us all about your favourite sandwich. Bread: It has to be rye bread. Filling: Pastrami. It’s what you call salt beef. Salad: Dill pickles on the side. Condiments: Dijon mustard. What’s so good about it? “I’m a big meat fan so this is great. It’s a pastrami sandwich but you call it salt beef and in Montreal it’s called Montreal smoked meat… Well, just smoked meat. I had a great sandwich in Langer’s in Los Angeles while we were recording Clockwork Angels. I love going around the world and eating pastrami sandwiches – there are a couple of places in London that I have to try. Mishkin’s is one. You know what? Talking about pastrami like this has given me an idea about the stage props for this tour…” Metal rating? 6/6 because Geddy’s such a big sandwich fan that his local deli has named a breakfast after him. More importantly, if you see any meat-oriented sandwiches on stage during Rush’s world tour this year, you can directly attribute the idea to us. We want credit.

  14. http://insidetv.ew.com/2013/01/07/how-i-met-your-mother-james-van-der-beek-alan-thicke-guest-star/ How I Met Your Mother': James Van Der Beek among guest stars for final Robin Sparkles installment by Sandra Gonzalez After the last new episode of How I Met Your Mother, executive producer Craig Thomas promised EW a star-studded fourth and final installment of the Robin Sparkles saga, and today, CBS announced the huge list of expected guest stars. Scheduled to appear in the Feb. 4 episode are: Alan Thicke, James Van Der Beek, Paul Shaffer, Jason Priestley, Alex Trebek, K. D. Lang, former Barenaked Ladies frontman Steven Page, Rush frontman Geddy Lee, and former Canadian hockey player Luc Robitaille. The appearance will mark Thicke’s fourth time making a cameo in a Robin Sparkles-centric episode, and this will be Van Der Beek’s second time on the show. In past episodes, Thicke has played himself while Beek portrayed Simon, Robin’s first boyfriend who also appeared in her “Sandcastles in the Sand” music video. Trebek has also previously appeared on the show. How I Met Your Mother, which recently was rumored to be returning for a ninth season, returns with new episodes Jan. 14.
  15. One of the things I was struck by in once again listening to "Dog Years" is the lack of a mention of a breed. Since there is so much diversity in the breeds, and diversity in life spans for that matter, the song could take on a much different meaning if you think he had in mind a Great Dane vs say a Bichon Frise. So, TRF, which breed do YOU feel that Neil had in mind while composing the lyrics?

  17. At 9:07 to go in Q2, the strains of "The Spirit of Radio" could be heard as the kickoff was launched skyward. Much better than Ged being on HIMYM :) :rush:
