I don't think I've ever seen the house band that animated either. Headbanger
Also, Nikki Minaj is out. There is a god!

Good. Well I feel the same way. I like your attitude and support and now (because of you) I feel the same way.


Go RUSH fan Idol!!!
Over many years exploring the world of Dark-Gothic Progressive Rock/Metal has been an unbelievably great experience. Colour me Goth all over! I'm hooked.

As odd as this is, it's a good thing. American Idol is a huge social media platform, so if getting a quality band out there(exposed) to people who are unfamiliar with RUSH I'm all for it. This is a great way for people to learn. Rush have been getting more recognition and respect the last couple of years and I believe it's only a matter of time till they take over the world!!!
Seriously though Scott, I'm looking at this as a positive even though that guy can't cover Geddy worth sh*t.

well, if your taste runs toward shrieking and generic ham fisted bombast, then rush is tip top. otherwise, its a pass.

^ oops my post got clipped

I had said that I was greatly enjoying the 1980s Rush having previously skipped everything after GUP. I spent the last couple months listening to all the 1980s Rush and would rank my favs:

1. Grace
2. Power Windows (awesome)
3. Presto
4. Roll The Bones
5. Hold Your Fire (distant 5th but still enjoyable).

But it occurred to me that most of the music isn't really proggy. I actually really like songs like Hand Over Fist and Anagram but they are really pop/rock no?

Same for lost of tunes.

But it's all really good.

Did Rush stop being a prog band with GUP and pretty much stayed non-proggy since then? Maybe Clockwork would be prog.

I'm actually not sure how to define prog. I would say at a minium there should be long songs with lots of instrumental passages, odd time signatures in parts and some time signature changes.

No matter I'm very pleased to have all this "new" material from my first love.

Reading about Peart's comments came to mind my good times listening to my double sided vynil LPs in the beginning of the 80's, among them Exit... Stage Left was a good example of that, but i also had the studio LPs Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures. Other ways of listening to music...

Agreed. Wow. Interesting news. Very interesting. RHCP are ok by me.
I think Californication had some great songs on that record. OTHERSIDE is an amazing song.
One of their very best. Great album of 1999

For a set that short, though, even the minute-long spacey synth intro would be a big chunk out of it. Tongue

^ I'm more amazed that a rock band is playing the superbowl this year at all. Tongue
And I hope they at least play a riff from it as a joke. Clap

You heard it here first.  Red Hot Chili Peppers to play Side 1 of Rush's 2112 at the Super Bowl Halftime show on Sunday.  http://www.classicrockmagazine.com/music_and_videos/red-hot-chili-peppers-spoof-single/ 

Or at least that is what drummer Chad Smith says in jest. LOL

Of course not, you can see it's identifying symbol in the frontal side of that cover I uploaded.
Exit... Stage Left is another show which I mentioned as having the performing of Xanadu that I most enjoyed.

^What an awesome set list!

Maybe they will do a tour of 70s material only someday.
