Very sad that there weren't more votes in this very important poll.

 

I was surprised at that, too. I wouldn't think that voter apathy would run so rampant even among Rush fans, too, but... :huh:

 

Hemispheres would certainly not be the same without the ping/ting/ding.

 

I should have put this poll in the Rush forum instead, but .... one of the poll police might have reported me! :ph34r: ;) :LOL: :cool:

:blah: Folks, that was Mr. JD from the Cincinnati area where Rush got their big break. He says he always called it a ding. Anyone have a response to that?

 

I'd like to phrase my response to that in the form of a question, Alex...

 

JD, you live in the Cincinnati area?? I'm in Dayton.

 

I drive about halfway to Cinci for work every day.

No. I think Lorraine meant Cleveland. I'm from the Akron area but moved to Georgia almost 30 years ago.

 

JD, I apologize. I'm lucky I remember my name and address these days. Which comes in handy in case I get lost. :codger:

 

I know someone in another thread asked you (I think it was Chica) where you lived. I thought you had said Cincinnati area.

Absolutely- someone has to uphold the fine work of the legislative branch!

I don't recall ever doing the ping that often when listening to Hemispheres. Usually, if my hands are free, I'm taking a two second break from playing air bass when the ping hits.

 

Yeah. It's a breather moment. :)

...or YYZ with it's multiple dings/tings/pings to start the song.

All right, I guess it's a little less than half way- Franklin. (But I live a little farther away than Dayton proper, too).

is this the part in Hemispheres where Neil hits the triangle?

 

Uh-huh.

 

More importantly, it's when all of the other music stops so that the 'ping' can be heard exceptionally clearly.

And so that Geddy can flash a big geeky smile.....;) ;)

I don't think the camera was on him during that part in my Tulsa video because I am sure I would have found it very funny to see Geddy do it.

 

I'm not sure what he did at other shows, but Geddy is a multi-talented pinger. In Columbus he mouthed the ping, while in Buffalo he used his right hand index finger. People all around me laughed.

A multi-talented pinger? That's impressive! :)
