I love both bands, but Geddy Lee sounds like this on the early RUSH albums.
Interesting considering Moving Pictures came out in 1980, and Ghost In The Machine was 1981, which was the first synthesizer album for the Police. With MP Rush were well on their way to heavy synths. People often bemoan Signals as being too electronic. Strange considering how heavy the synth presence is on MP.
Geddy consistently mentions Ultravox as a band he was really into. Now that's heavy on the synthesizer.
I loved 'em both greatly. Two of my three favorite rock guitarists.
I liked/still like New World Man by Rush.
If the Police had come out with something like that though ?
I would have laughed.
The Police's take on any music that had a reggae/dub/ska feel ? Like it was second nature to them. They were much more nuanced about most of it.
I like Peart but he over-played often. Loved SC though. He had great feel and could always get himself out of a jam when he went a little too far with a fill.
Geddy Lee sounds like that on every Rush album. His voice is fingernails down a blackboard to me
Ooh. Yes. A great look. Hummmm. This was his obsessed with Clockwork Orange period.
But who is that on his badge? And why?
Shows how subjective these things are. I never have heard his playing as over-playing. It always made perfect sense to me.
^^^^Well, it was a trio so he had space to fill - I get that.
I love Geddy and Alex - especially Alex. I love his conception of solos. Assemble the best bits in the studio in the right order, learn the solo and - that's it. That's the solo.
That's genius. He's very underrated - as a rhythm player as well.
I'm referring to the pre-Moving Pictures stuff. He's mellowed a bit later.
Given the timeframe of the release, probably Meher Baba.
I think he was just talking about them as a trio making fun incredible music you can dance to. Not necesarilly the synth aspect of it. They went pop because The Police a little.
PT said he wore the boiler suit/coveralls because it reminded him that he was at work and that being up there was his job.
Partly the reason he clobbered Abbie Hoffman at Woodstock. "Don't bug me when I'm working !"
Now I have to go listen to Isle of Wight
I'm gonna do the exact opposite RIGHT NOW!
The opening 'echo' intro of 2112 came before anything 80's... Roll the Bones!
This ^^ pretty much explains the similarity and if there was ever a case of tone is in the gear not the fingers, this is it.
Telecaster + EHX Electric Mistress and/or Boss CE1/Roland JC120.
Yeah, I left out my favorite influences on them!
Interesting thing is that I recently where Neil Peart said that most of Alex's solos were improvised. I wonder.
Alex's rhythm playing is what I love best about him, his solos are just the cherry on top.
"New World Man" and its parent album "Signals" are about the only Rush I can stomach outside of a few of their signature tunes.
You are correct sir.
