    Rush

    I've seen that there was no thread about them so I decided to put one up. We all know who they are! Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and one of the most recognized drummers in the world.... NEIL PEART!! I'm a huge fan of Rush starting since Thanksgiving of last year. I stayed up Thanksgiving Eve watching Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage about 3 times in a row.

    Rush is my favorite band to play drums to since Neil is so complex and innovative, still learning "La Villa Strangiato" at the moment.

    Discuss your opinions on Rush!

    OTHER BIG NEWS:
    Leaked 2012 tour book cover


    This year marks the 30th anniversary of Signals. This cover and members of Rush Is A Band have stated that the band will be playing Signals in its entirety on this tour.

    There are also rumors, since the band has cancelled its amphitheater tour to indoor venues that the 2012 tour will also consist of a full orchestra. The band has been wanting to do this for a while, and many songs on CA used a full orchestra.

    stocked.

    This is some shit I'm excited for. Rush is one of my favorite bands. I'm not totally sold on the idea of a full orchestra being used, but hey, if it's done right, then I'll take it.

    Hearing Signals in full on the tour will be fucking fantastic. Can't wait for 2017 when they (hopefully) do Hold Your Fire in full.

    Rush is awesome im happy to hear 'bout the new album, i liked "Snakes and Arrows" and "Vapor Trails" a lot but im hoping for a different direction for this one, maybe happier and upbeat like "Roll the Bones" or "Presto"

    I listened to Signals on the way home from work today. It holds up damn well. Loved seeing them in '03 at Toronto Rocks and I may check their show out this year too.

    Love it!

    Then again, I've loved everything they've done barring a couple of albums in the 80s....

    Yeah its a fucking jammin song. Just read an interview in which Geddy stated that he and Alex originally wrote as an instrumental called "Take That Lampshade Off Yo' Head" until they read Neil's lyrics for the song.

    Wow, they tore it up with that song. Nice to see that the energy is carried through the entire song.

    Got my bday present a few days early. Got the UK fan pack from Classic Rock magazine. Also got my name on the limited edition poster!

    Album is fucking amazing. Pretty much a mix of every 90's Rush album times 100.

    I used to have Permanent Waves when I was a kid, a cassette copy I taped from my old man's LP. That album and the track Tom Sawyer were the only Rush tracks I knew of until I grabbed a discography a few months ago. I've been slowly going through it, not a big fan of the 70s material, but Permanent Waves on-wards just blows my mind. Power Windows is a personal favorite right now. Up next I have Presto to listen to.

    I don't really want to buy these albums on CD, if I bought them legit I'd want the LPs, Rush feels like an LP band to me.

    Eddie Trunk's complete "Holiday Rush" Radio special broadcast on December 21st, 2012. This show celebrated the music of Rush for 3 hours, with special guest co-host Mike Portnoy and an exclusive new telephone interview with Alex Lifeson.

    I have removed the full studio tracks that were played, but have kept the rare, live, and unreleased tracks played from Mike Portnoy's collection. Here is a complete list of all songs played, the ones that are starred (*) are included in this video. All tracks are studio unless otherwise noted (I have kept the Different Stages track, since it is now out of print).

    2112: Overture/Temples of Syrinx
    Need Some Love
    Caravan
    Tom Sawyer (live bootleg from Allentown, PA, 1980-09-30) *
    The Body Electric
    Jacob's Ladder
    Garden Road (live bootleg from Cleveland, OH, 1974-08-26) *
    Stick it Out
    I Think I'm Going Bald
    Alex Lifeson Interview 12-21-2012 *
    Not Fade Away (rare single) *
    A Farewell to Kings (live Different Stages bonus disc - Hammersmith Odeon, London 1978) *
    Workin' Them Angels
    The Analog Kid
    Circumstances (live bootleg from Detroit, MI 1978-12-02) *

    I am really, really enjoying their early-80s albums lately: Permanent Waves through Grace Under Pressure (and I just picked up a DVD from the latter album's tour, recorded here in Toronto circa 1984... it's some really good shit).

    Might as well have just said it out loud: I really, really need to get laid.

    I've heard many acceptance speeches and they always are the same but... Alex Lifeson's speech... brings a tear to my eye. It was so eloquent. So moving. So poetic. It will be a speech that will be remembered for many years to come.
