Whew,... that Rush clip was hard to watch.
That first Yoko clip isn't really that fair, it has been a cut and paste of several pieces of that performance.
There's actually a whole scene in Japan of noise musicians, who create a whole cacophony of sound and do it all with a complete stern, serious outlook.
Yoko Ono is part of that.
I must be in the wrong thread. I was looking for the "I hate the Rolling Stones/New Country Music/Led Zeppelin/U2/Police and any other band that is or has been astronomically successful so I'm going to find a snippet of questionable performance on Youtube so I can start a hate thread on them" thread. Can anyone point me in that direction? Thanks!
I've been a Rush fan since 1977, and I agree that Geddy sounded really strained on that clip. However, the people who pay to see them still want to hear the old hits.
Here's some Rush for those who don't like the vocals:
Do I win some sort of prize?
Waited decades for a Rush song to come along that I could listen to all the way through.
Finally they covered "Summertime Blues." Though Lee's voice was still the weak link, at least it didn't sound as if he were being castrated by having his testicles ripped from his body with a bear trap during the recording; more like just slammed by a car door.
ABBA sold 350 MILLION albums.
Perhaps they arent "rock" but Agnetha was once voted to have the sexiest butt in Europe.
that has to count for something
Their music. Not for me.
But that's surely not a good reason to list them in a thread entitled "the worst thing I've ever heard"..
Bashing Rush and Radiohead in the same thread .... this is the worst thread I've ever seen and I like Geddys voice.
I always think of an angry Mickey Mouse when I hear Rush but seriously I read somewhere he has a rubber band wrapped around his nuts to get that vocal sound
It gets soo much worse than that.
I didn't list them in a thread entitled "the worst thing I've ever hear". I just said I didn't like radiohead.
I'd rather listen to David Bowie sing with Muppets.
I know but you seemed to be replying on his behalf so I assumed you felt the same.
I respect ABBA, heck when nobody's looking I like ABBA , they were a great pop group, but despite the fact that Rush is not my cup of tea I also recognize that they are an important and great rock group, and (mr Lee's middle age+ voice notwithstanding) would be more appropriate choice for a true "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame". But of course the choice largely hinges on who Jann Wenner would rather attend a party with on induction weekend than on appropriateness.
It is good being the King, I guess
But we all grow older, if we are lucky as our voices age we sound more like Don Williams than Yoko.
That's the problem.
I give them props for their hard work to get to where they are but OMG how is it that they are so popular. I'm mystified.
I can't listen to a second of their 'music'. I could listen to Britney Spears for probably 10x's longer than Rush before shoving hot pokers into my ears.
I'm definitely not a fan, but every once in a while Spirit of the Radio will find its way into a playlist.
As a Rush fan, I watched the video in the OP and thought "What's wrong with that?"
Seriously, Geddy's voice just sounds to me like it's been thrashed by the rigors of a touring schedule. Makes me wonder how far into the tour this video was made. But other than that, it's just Rush doing "Working Man," and you either dig it or you don't.
Rush's "Working Man" sounds as good now as when I was 18, it's one of my favorite Rush songs, I prefer it to the new age space stuff.
Maybe if I was 18 when I first listened to Radiohead I would like their music better.
And how come Neil Peart didn't bring his big kit? What's he trying to compensate for I wonder? Did he buy all the drums and cymbals in the entire world?
Here's what a freekin' drum kit should look like:
