Also, a couple of Facebook posts from Clockwork Angels co-author Kevin J. Anderson:


For those of you NOT lucky enough to be at Rushcon, I made an announcement this afternoon about an anthology of Rush-based stories I'll be coediting with John McFetridge for ECW (publishers of Clockwork Angels). We have a gang of award-winning and bestselling authors already lined up to contribute stories based on Rush songs. And I'll be doing a novella called "2113".

Kevin J. Anderson announces: sequel to Clockwork Angels The Novel: Clockwork Lives. Co-written by Neil Peart. He is now reading top secret excerpts.

What are your thoughts on the Rush R40 Anniversary Box Set?  http://www.rush.com/r40-40th-anniversary-collectors-box-set-available-in-dvd-blu-ray/

I have all of the Live Concerts on either Blu-ray or DVD so have no use for other copies, but I am intrigued by the previously unreleased concert footage.

Who do you think deserves more credit?

After reading the Rush synth thread I just did a binge on Signals thru Presto (ok, I expanded it a bit!)  :p

Phenomenal songs, phenomenal musicianship! Thumbs Up

It's a stellar album and Vapor Trails similarly blew my socks off (especially after the long gap between T4E and it).

I usually do it in December around Christmas time. I don't know why, but it the kind of music I love. And need to hear over the holidays. Besides. Whenever I binge on Rush its impossible for me to just listen to one album from them in a day. I gotta do 3. :)

Fantastic amazing 80's work.

Yeah, I hear you. It's hard to just listen to one Rush album a day. I seem to go through several Rush phases each year.

Threshold still have all the goods that makes them one of the best classic rock/Prog metal bands in the world. 2014's For The Journey is worth a serious listen.

Bump.

I just got back from a trip to Wyoming for camping and climbing. I listened to the Rush discography from front to back (skipping their debut). It was pretty great.

You guys ever hear this? Pay attention to the chord just after the 1 minute mark. What's it sound like to you?


it does sound similar to that main motif from the album, i mean this was released the year before that album.

While that's right up there, I've always liked Grand Designs and Territories a bit more. Of course, the whole albums amazing and is one of my favorite Rush albums (behind Grace Under Pressure).

Indeed. Power Windows is my favorite post Moving Pictures album.

I have to echo the love for Emotion Detector.  The Clockwork Angels Tour would have been a great opportunity to pull it out of the vaults.

Yes. These guy's have always been in a class of their own and the fact that they can still produce top shelf music is a testament to their talent.
