    Actually Part's drumkit is small and restricted compared to what Terry Bozzio is using.

    For real. The best shows I have ever seen. Trolling Troll is trolling.

    Love 'em, hate 'em .. it don't matter!

    They're local boys in my town, saw them when they played bars as wee pumpkins. My ears still hurt! hehe

    R30 is a fabulous show on dvd, especially the opening overture.

    That's not the "worst" thing I've ever heard. It's just incredibly boring.

    Yep, the first ever mod to get banned... ;):D


    Well, I wouldn't have done anything with the video if they didn't play it on the radio. They'd have to be stupid to use THIS performance instead of a good one.

    That's why I said pop music aside... :lol: Bad rush is better than bad pop

    i dunno. i-just-dont-get-it.
    the droning tones. the circular riffs. the lamentingly arduous singing.
    it makes my soul hurt.

    I'm not a huge Rush fan, but I have listened to quite a bit of their stuff, at least up to Moving Pictures.

    For people to dis musicians of that caliber in a band with such a deep catalog just doesn't compute. Then again they're neither blues-rock nor country so some folks just won't get them I guess.

    Just last week I watched Beyond the Lighted Stage and it's a great doc, you should check it out.

    I like a lot of rush songs, and most radiohead songs... I must be some kind of freak!

    Sooo.. I'm gonna put a tribute band together.

    Spirit of Radio-head

    Why alienate half your audience when you can go for the whole lot .. ;)

    More seriously, I was / am a huge fan of Radiohead until the Kid-A album.
    Went in a direction I couldnt follow at that point.

    I cannot imagine how anyone could sit and listen to 'The Bends' Album a few times and not grow to love it.

    Sorry, this is about Rush.
    I remember hearing 'Finding my Way' from the first album and laughing out loud at Mr Lee's antics ;)
    Great bass player though.

    And again I say, "I Liked it just fine, thank you." All of it - the music and the vocals. Never had any problem with Geddy's voice - in fact, I think its one of the best in rock music. Strong and original.

    'course, you're entitled to your opinion. But I disagree with it rather strongly.

    I liked this version of Working Man just fine. The vocals were a bit strained, but they weren't anywhere near "the worst thing I have ever heard." Geddy's voice isn't what it used to be, but he still gets out there and gets the job done.

    Lifeson OWNED it tho! Wow!

    Great band playing an old song.

    If you don't like Rush that's OK. I hate Ted Nugent.


    At least Rush can play...

    Radiohead humor!

    I never disliked Rush, always thought they were overplayed, but never disliked them. In fact, I like Geddy's voice. These vocals were just sad, especially for a major release (I assume this is a DVD).

    Ok, so spend your money joyfully for bad concerts :rolleyes:

    Yes sir. That's what the schooled drummers learn and practice. Similar to scales in a way. I even do some of the rudies (rudiments) for practicing congas and bongos.
