So I take it 'La Villa' is off the board...
I could cob job that one, but I have another in mind. A little less daunting, but a good one nonetheless.
FWIW I'll pass on anything off Permanent Waves....
I know it's all the rage and many people state that's when they started listening to RUSH, but that's when I stopped.
That surprises me Darrell. There are so many good tracks on there: Jacob's Ladder, Entre Nous and my favorite, Natural Science. Not to mention that Alex's tone on Different Strings is to die for!
The one I'll likely record isn't on there anyway.
The big thing that caught my ear was the huge dive away from fantasy / hopeful romanticism to secularism.
It seemed to me they sold out.
Pitched to the younger generation raised on secularism and short hits. Ugh!
Roll the bones? I can't even listen to it!
I loved RUSH more when their music spoke to me of bigger grander things, and things I could relate to.
There is no hope in secularism and it's message beats an empty sound on my ears.
There is no hope or hereafter in that philosophy, and that's when I lost it for them for a couple albums.
IIRC I posted my sentiments about music in your other thread about 'where did the great guitar players go' a while back.
Ah well, just one man's opinion.
Another week and .....
Still no guitar! LOL!!!!!!
Moving Pictures was their last for me.
Yeah, I loved that one too, but after that it was hit or miss.
I liked Grace Under Pressure and was ok with Signals. Even tried out Hold Your Fire.
Hemispheres was a little goofy and pretentious to me.
Side B after Freewill ( I know it has that killer solo in it, I just can't sing the words) was better.
But it wasn't the same solid wall to wall love like I feel between the debut RUSH album and A Farewell to Kings.
I will unquestionably listen to ANY song, A or B side, from ANY album in that span and LOVE it! Don't even have to tell me what it is, just put it on!
I luv 'Kings, truly my favourite start to finish Rush album. I agree the Hemispheres was a bit daffy on the lyrics, but the band was hot on that one. I think Spirit of Radio may be my favourite of their songs, more a time and place thing, I remember hearing it at the arcade/pool hall I hung out at when I was ten.
Did you guys ever give Max Webster a listen? They were also a favourite. The bands were best pals and toured a lot together in the 70's. They cut one track together.
Saw them once in concert years ago and Max opened for them.
Haven't listened to much to be honest.
I remember when Spirit came out too and I have some pretty great memories of telling more than one of my guitar playing buddies that that was a guitar in the intro.
I would ask them to guess what it was and they would make keyboard motions with their hands.
Their eyes would get big and a look of shock would cross their faces when I told them it was guitar.
Ha! The master at work!
I think they all started listening a little harder to Alex after that.
Really brought him into focus for them.
Not a bad thing!
Maybe I was there? Where did you see them?
Would be the Palace Theater here in Albany, years ago.
I can't remember which album, but Farewell was behind them by this point so maybe it was around the permanent waves time. That would be around the '80s.
They did 2 nights after the first night sold out. Nice of them, I thought.
How it looked back then. It's had a face lift since.
This one's for Freddie!
The last picture is phenomenal!
Nope, wasn't there. I did see Frampton there though in '12. Got a nice picture of him with my wife and I. Two weeks later, we were in NYC to see him at The Beacon Theatre. That was the night where he played his original '54 Les Paul for the first time on stage since he got it back.
This is a picture I took that night after his guitar tech brought it out on stage:
Here's a video someone took:
Yeah, THAT was cool, I researched Peter Frampton a lot after reading in a comment on youtube about him getting his guitar back after like 30 years.
That fella and I never knew he even lost it, or a plane crash or anything.
So yeah, I chased that rabbit for weeks around youtube and different sites piecing the story together.
It really IS remarkable, and I can't imagine the tears of joy that must have swept through him on getting it back.
Haters still hated in the comments, but there is no hope for some people.
It's a shame to me that they will never know what true joy feels like!
I cannot imagine why they would want to get up in the morning, what do they have to look forward to?
I can't even imagine what he must have felt like. Having found your perfect match in the early '70s, using it all those year and no doubt taking him years to get over the loss and then getting it back!? Type about a range of emotions!
Glass half empty kind of people. Stupid. I'm just a glass half kind of guy.
kind of like this, I would imagine. Not on a literal scale, but as a simile.
Well, if you're too old to play Alex, maybe you could just 'settle' for some vintage Roy Clark...
This is just too amazing not to share...
See what you think, my friend....
For being a retiree, I've been working a lot. I need a vacation! Oh yeah, that's right, we'll be going to Florida in a couple of weeks.
