  1. I will be ranking every Rush original studio album. Each track will be rated as follows: Awful, Very Poor, Poor, Below Average, Average, Above Average, Good, Great, Superb Each album will be rated on a scale of 1 to 10. Feel free to give your input on each album and discuss why you like/dislike each album. Please keep it civilized and have fun!
  2. Look, I know this sounds like a weird topic, but I just have to ask, does anybody on this forum have some rare pictures/screenshots of Geddy without his glasses? Like ones that are from the 2000s to more recent times, and if anyone has said pictures, could I possibly see them? By the way, I started a new topic yesterday on Music Of The Spheres about a band I like called NICO Touches The Walls. Here's the link if you wanna check it out. http://www.therushforum.com/index.php?/topic/114138-nico-touches-the-walls/
  3. Hey everyone, Excited to join The Rush Forum to talk about our favorite 3 musicians! I was lucky enough to see RUSH perform on their 2nd to last ever concert (R40 Tour - Irvine Meadows Amphitheater), and their music has always had a profound influence on me. Limelight was the first full song I learned on guitar, and I ended up learning other songs on both guitar and bass over the years. I have a YouTube channel "GuitarBeastKing" where I post concert videos, as well as guitar/bass covers that I record at home. I take great pride in the guitarists I cover, with the goal for every video to be the BEST cover of that particular song online. So, feel free to check out my RUSH covers!

  4. Can someone help me out here? I remember a few years ago in 2018, I saw commercial or psa on YouTube that had Geddy in it. I don't remember what it was for, all I remember about it was that Ghost of a Chance was playing, the commercial was black and white and Geddy was possibly standing outside somewhere, and it's from 1995 or from sometime in the early to mid 90s. This commercial was actually uploaded by the same channel where I had first seen the Rush Retrospective Boxset Special, but because that channel was terminated, I haven't seen the commercial since. Does anyone know or remember this ad and if so what was it about and does anyone have the footage of it? I think it was aired only in Canada, I might be wrong though.
  5. Found this on the web tonight . Super cool . Alex and Geddy together again. At the South Park 25th anniversary concert , Red Rocks !!!!!
  6. I've looked through the previous game and I thought it looked like a lot fun to play, so I've decided to make a sequel to the game. I'll start it with this, I don't know if this'll be too funny, if funny at all, but I'll at least try. "Argh, Alex! This is the last time I let you borrow my glasses! Thanks to you misplacing them, I can't see a damn thing I'm playing!" That's the best I can do, at least at this moment, sorry if it's not funny.
  7. Hi, I just joined this forum yesterday and I was looking for a place to post this topic and I felt this was the best place to put it in. My question is, does anybody go to the website rushradio.net aka Rush Radio 2112 and has anybody noticed recently that the website hasn't been able to load up for a few days, I thought it was just temporarily down, but now I don't know. I just really want to know what's going on with the website.
  8. My unique history revisionist Rush/Aimee Mann-playlist. Background: A guy i lived with introduced me to Rush around 1987/1988 i believe, around the time he switched from vinyl to CDs, and Hold Your Fire was the latest album, so that became my favorite Rush album, as i understand is the case with many Rush fans, the first you come in contact with becomes THE album. I can't actually remember now if he had HYF on both vinyl and CD, or if that was vinyl only, but i think he got it on CD as well, since i listened a lot more to HYF than any of the older albums, which he had on vinyl only. I do remember the first he got on both for comparison, MJ's Bad. He later got A Show of Hands and Presto on CD, and those two accidentally came with me when i moved out, i was not responsible for that btw. But it was a stroke of luck. Listened to them every now and then on my setup, until i picked up Counterparts on CD for something like $4.99 in a sale, and it got me hooked, realized that Rush was pretty great, and wanted more, so i started picking up the back catalogue, think Roll The Bones was my next if i remember correctly. So sometimes in the mid 90's i came aboard and started ranking them as #1, possibly joint #1 together with Depeche, Kraftwerk, Tori Amos and S.P.O.C.K. Edit: ..and Opeth, which i got into right from their debut in 1993, i ordered it on chance, not having listened to it. Talk about a jackpot. Got Spotify through our family, and generally dislikes all shuffle/random playlists, like "This is Rush" and similar, i am an album listener, used the shuffle function maybe once in the 80s when i got my first CD player and then turned it off for all eternity, i don't read chapters in books out of order, or move around the scenes in movies. in addition, if i want to get a grip on an artist or a band, i want to do it chronologically, experience it in the same order like the oldest fans did, sometimes that can be pretty hard to do on Spotify, since album labeled years are out of order or albums are missing, and where do the singles fit in? I basically feel forced to have a bands Wikipedia page in a tab to be able to listen to everything in correct order. Made a complete chronological Joy Division/New Order playlist for a family friend that includes all side project by all members, and finally got around to do one with Rush when Neil passed. But i added a twist to it. Two thoughts merged, after Snakes & Arrows and Clockwork Angels, remarkable albums, not many bands so long into their career can put out such great albums "that late", and i started thinking about what challenges they could put themselves through. Became a fan of Aimee around Magnolia if i remember correctly, at that time not even knowing it was her on my all time favorite Rush song, but when i realized, a fantasy emerged in my head, the first part was that i wanted to see them live with her on stage for the chorus, i would literally die happily moments after if that had ever happened. The fantasy expanded into that they should pick her up as a fourth member and challenge themselves with being a quartet(or they could rename themselves to RushMann), maybe give Geddy's vocals a break(after all, he's almost 90 years old), and revamp some old songs with dual guitars. I still haven't given up on this dream, nothing is holy in my world, and i don't think it is in theirs either or was in Neil's, they started without Neil, and i would love a 20th album. Possible titles would be "20 and out" or "no more book reading". Anything can happen(from my other all time favorite Rush song). So i decided to add everything with Aimee to the playlist, chronologically sorted in-between everything with Rush, and like the JD/NO playlist it also features all side projects, thus Victor, Headache, Til Tuesday, The Both, and collaborations by "all four Rush members". It's not entirely complete yet, some collaborations remain to be sorted in, but I'll get there. Also make sure to have your Spotify apps set up to show unplayable tracks, the list includes at least two albums with Aimee and the original Vapor Trails that are currently unplayable(plus a few collab. songs), minus the last Vapor song, which is available for comparisons with the remixed version. Hope Rush put up the original again, i don't approve of sweeping things under the rug. Hope some of you like the playlist. You can listen to entire Rush albums in order through the list with a free account, which i don't think you can do otherwise? Have since made a few other similar complete chronological playlists including all members side projects with AC/DC, Manowar, Kraftwerk, Creedence, Fleetwood, Marie Fredriksson, Olle Ljungström/Reeperbahn, ZZ Top, Nick Cave(not complete yet, still missing soundtracks), Jason Newsted, Cyndi Lauper, Little Richard, Ted Nugent, Alan Merrill, Loffe Carlsson and Genesis(NOT complete yet, ran out of strength around 1985, but it will be HUGE once complete) and Haken. Also have a complete chronological playlist with everything from my small hometown of Alingsås, Sweden, 40k pop, 25k city center, 3.800+ tracks from 900+ releases by 230 artist/bands from one and the same town, or out of town bands with at least one member from said town. I wish there existed similar playlists for all towns around the world, so you could listen in on everything from cities you have a connection to or sweet spot in your heart. If anyone ever picks up on this idea and put together a complete playlist for their own hometown, please let me know, i will listen to everything in it out of principle. There are actually two progressive rock-bands in my hometown list, Wonderland and Kaleidoreal. And please check out the Legends of Doom-single by Vim Spencer Group, old school metal at it's finest. Other local acts in that list worth a mention are 70's rock by Prophet Laundry, death metal acts Skymning, Arise, Arcosolium, Gravebomb and Puteraeon. Blues band Groznyj, a single by their singer Kerstin Karlsson, one of the finest Christmas songs ever by Queen of Clouds, and for those like me that have never seen any problems with Geddy's voice, check out Arbogast(a later project by the same leader/singer is Sundown Delay), and heavy dark electronic tunes from Myren and GHT, Alingsås/Irish rock band Cousin Bill, surreal experimental "rock/pop" by Svenson and Dieter Schöön, five power metal albums from Fraise, more power by Vandor(female drummer), Cure'ish Hunt(also Tyred Eyes, Winter Took His Life and Rome Is Not A Town by shared band members), the fastest death metal drummer ever in Immersed in Blood/Sgt. Carnage/Cursus Bellum, funk by Mantello, Maiden style heavy metal by Mindghost(actually features Blaze Bayley on a track), old school black metal by Zatyr, and Sweden's runner up band in national country tournament, Andreas Carlsson & The Moonshine Band. Came really close to forgetting a link to the Rush/Aimee playlist! https://open.spotify...3VFsxnR1waxwcxs You can view it even without Spotify, in a browser, but if you do, some tracks weirdly appear to be from another album than the one which is actually added in the playlist, By Tor and Snowdog is one weird example, where that track appears to be from a Retrospective collection, which is not the case in the actual playlist, and this also messes up the four cover pictures of the playlist. The Fancy Dancer single is missing. This is not good. And as i wrote this, i realized i shouldn't force anything on someone, in this case Aimee, so i just created a duplicate complete Rush list without everything Aimee, for those who sadly don't like her. It'll be interesting to see which one gets the most followers in a couple of months or years. https://open.spotify...VSPHq9BPuJLZBOb All the other mentioned playlists are on the Spotify profile behind the Rush lists, for Reverend Time of Alinge, Texas. a.k.a. RushMann.
  9. Geddy announced on social media this evening that he and his mom, Mary, will be making an appearance on "From Cradle To Stage". It's a six part series coming this spring to Paramount Plus, based on the book Dave Grohl's mom, Virginia Hanlon Grohl, wrote about a number of rock starts and their moms. This article tells more about it- https://variety.com/...ies-1234953213/ From this photo on a random youtube post, it appears that Geddy's episode will air June 10? Stay tuned! (And yes, Paramount Plus is a streaming channel that you have to pay for, but they offer a 7 day free trial. :ebert: I think you can do one month for like $6.00. ) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuoaGFeKEHw
  10. Here's a link to a quiz that exists, in case you don't know your answer already: http://www.quizfarm.com/quizzes/Rush/Big_Tommy_P/which-member-of-rush-are-you/ I scored as Alex Lifeson, which probably means I'm on an emotional high right now and I had too much coffee again. I'll probably be Neil in a couple of weeks, in which case I'll be on the forum with the iPad in bed while complaining about my life and cursing society. I just wish I could reach a Geddy-style equilibrium once in a while.
  11. Once you RUSH posers get your hands on the new RUSH Vapor Trails remix edition, will it mean the end of the road for your VT 2002 copy? Or will you find yourself sticking with the old one??? Only time will tell of course, but what is your feeling right now based on the two VT song remixes from a while back? :hi: :hi: :hi: :hi: :hi: :guitar:
  12. We all know about Dirk's solo record, My Favourite Headache, but I recently stumbled upon a CD called just My Headache. It had no tracklist on the back, just a note about Rush's induction into the RRHoF. Curiosity got the best of me, and I ended up buying it. I popped it into my stereo and found it to be an interview with Geddy (discussing MFH, of course). No idea who the interviewer is, though, nor the exact date of the recording. I was not able to find a lot of information about it on the net, though, except for this AllMusic entry. Does anyone know anything about this release?
  13. Geddy did several publicity interviews in July during his most recent book signing tour, but I found this one to be well written and interesting. As always, Geddy is well spoken and he gives Skully, his bass tech, a nice shout out. It's easiest to read if I put up the link- http://illinoisentertainer.com/2019/07/stage-buzz-geddy-lee-book-signing-at-barnes-noble-chicago/
  14. Geddy has donated the bass strings from when he played Roundabout with Yes at the RRHOF last year to charity. The place that is handling them is https://theguitarwrist.co.uk/rush/ a place that creates art and jewelry from items that artists donate. The buyer of Geddy's times will see their donation go to Grapes For Humanity and the UK Teenage Cancer Trust. Links and photos below- 5 days left! (Sadly, the bids are above my price. I love the bracelet! ) https://theguitarwri... https://theguitarwri...rings-bracelet/
  15. Short but funny clip of Geddy's opinion on different songs! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NXdxQDkTwU
  16. Earl and any other West Coast TRFers, here's your chance! ( and Geddy, one more East Coast event, please?). Tickets are on sale now at the link at booksoup.com. $65.00.
  17. I'm curious to know what your initial reaction was to Geddy's voice the very first time you heard it? For me, I first heard Geddy sing on Bastille Day and I was totally blown away and instantly took to his voice like a duck to water (or would that be a "Dirk" to water) . . . How 'bout you?
  18. The upcoming December 2018 issue of the UK's Classic Rock magazine contained a nice interview with Geddy. For more information, including links to the complete article transcription, please follow the link below. http://news.cygnus-x1.net/2018/11/geddy-lee-interviewed-in-december-issue.html Enjoy-
  19. Geddy wished Neil a Happy Birthday on Instagram a day early! I thought people might enjoy seeing the photos. geddyimagesAhead of Sept 12th I want to be first to wish a big happy birthday to my brother in arms and rhythm section partner for over 42 years - Cheers Peke! and for those of you that think he's the "serious” one.. well, au contraire! #whatdayisit? #booksarefortourists#LekePekeDeke #bubbagump#OfficerOMalley #FaleetNeeEth #rush#neilpeart #firstpost #jumpedthegun
  20. Geddy and Alex attended the Foo Fighters concert last night in Toronto. (No sign of Geddy's mom or Rod from Toronto in the photos, though!). Here is Geddy's Instagram post accompanying the photos he posted. Nice to see him with Alex again! geddyimagesA great big cheers to @foofighters and their super kind crew for an awesome show and much appreciated hospitality shown to myself and my bestie Alex last night in our hometown of Toronto. A truly great hang! Kudos to Taylor for that killer drum solo and for rockin' that Rush T shirt! #foofighters #sometimesgoodguysfinishfirst ! #RushFoos #Taylorrocks
  21. AXS has released a longer trailer of the interview Dan Rather did of Geddy that is airing next Tuesday, Oct. 24th. And if you don't get AXS, apparently you can download it the next day for $2.00 at this AXS website- http://www.axs.tv/bu...terview-online/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBVya4G8uNQ Here's another part of the interview- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVoEcHudb8w
  22. I will be posting my reviews of Rush's studio albums. Tell me whether you agree or disagree with my thoughts on each album. Keep in mind I will be posting a rating at the bottom of each linked article, my thoughts have changed since I wrote some of these.
  23. Anybody ever figured out why on earth he does that? I still can't figure it out!! Lol, maybe it's a joke he just does it 'cause he's Geddy, or is there like... A signal to the crew? Something... Lol
  24. We're smoking, drinking watching the AL Wildcard game. Geddy is in his usual seat wearing a brown leather jacket looking healthy.
  25. A recent photo leak from an anonymous hacker reveals that our idol, Geddy Lee may in fact be biologically female. As to why Geddy has kept this crucial aspect of his life from us is beyond me. This new found evidence begins to answer many of our fundamental questions regarding Geddy's mysteriously high vocal range and luxurious locks. Don't get me wrong, I still love the band, but this changes everything for me. - - - - - - - SCROLL DOWN - - - - - - - - - - - - - (MOD EDIT: removed photoshopped image of Geddy's head on naked female body. The naughty bits were censored, but still too revealing for this board.)
