Default Rush: "Beyond the Lighted Stage"

I recently saw this movie/documentary about the band. I have to admit, I have always been a fan. I wouldn't say "super fan", but a fan.

I highly recommend this if you can catch it or rent it. I saw it on VH1.

It was fascinating. Great quotes and cameos from people and artists that would surprise you as Rush fans. Including Matt Stone (Bronco connection)...

There are no Zeppelin/groupie/shark incident stories, or "Brown M&M's" stories a la Van Halen. No Rolling Stones tales of debauchery. Just an intelligent portrayal of this very cool band. My interest has come around again. They are touring right now, including playing "Moving Pictures" in it's entirety.

Extremely interesting..including how they dealt with Neal Peart's loss of his Wife and Daughter just months apart...I would tell you more, but I'm going to get my copy of 2120 and crank it...stay thirsty my friends...

Not to **** on your thread, but I cannot stand their music at all. There are so many people completely in love with them and frankly it confuses me. They sound so corny and lame, and I like a lot of classic rock. But music is completely subjective so this post is pretty irrelevant. When I was growing up I always wondered who the chick who sang that tom sawyer song was.

Again, sorry to rant.

No worries "Flex", just killing time on the company dime...

I was interested beyond the musical standpoint..

And yes, Geddy will never be confused with Sinatra...but as musicians, they are sick talented...

I heard one of their new songs and I didn't know it was a new song because it sounded like an old Rush song, that is, way heavy on blues and power cords, I was thinking to myself as I was listening to it "wow, this is a really old Rush song and I have never heard it, wonder how I missed this gem..." and then the XM DJ says "That is the new Rush song entitled...." I was like, cool!

unless they've changed it, it's 2112...

i'm not a Rush geek, but have been a well-versed fan for 30 years. i do plan to check this out, as they have always intrigued me as people and as individuals. they're not your typical get drunk, get laid, write about strippers rock band, which usually makes for interesting documentaries.

Saw it ... not a Rush fan, but it was a truly excellent bio. Geddy and Alex pals since junior high, blazing their own visionary trail ever since.

Saw it on Palladia ... awesome, awesome network.

That is why they are considered the best cult band in the world. It is either Love or hate with them.

It took me forever to get used to Lee's voice but Tom Sawyer is one of the greatest songs ever. I have fond memories of the year Moving Pictures came out.

They might be coming to Argentina soon. First time ever, and if they do... I'll be there.

Rush puts on a great show.

Makes me want to crank up some 2112.

"A Passage to Bangkok" is probably my favorite Rush song.

Default As a percussionist who grew up in the 80's.....

You could not ignore what Neil Peart was doing in the drum world. When Buddy Rich crowns someone as the "king of drumming" you pay attention, especially when the drummer is writing all the tunes. When Rush went keyboard (discussed in the Documentary) they lost me. Then they came back with the focus of the early works. I had the privilege to ride with Neil in the mountains of North Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina a few years back.....right after the loss of "his girls". Special, special time for me. Tough time for him. They remain one of my favorite bands for their lack of pretention, and their musical "chops". Glad that Neil seems to have found peace with it all. He spoke of the gal from Cali with unfettered enthusiasm when we met him, and was very accomodating throughout. I never said a word about being a fan or a percussionist, just didn't seem right at the time. His loss was well publisized, and I just didn't want to intrude with it. For that night around the fire at Two Wheels Only, we were just fellow Moto geeks, and that was just fine with me. He truely is a fine fellow. Humble, funny, and soft spoken. Descent human being, and exceptionally telented. Enjoyed the Doc emensly.

I saw it on VH1 as well and it's really well done.

I'm a Rush fan, although 2112 is probably my least favorite album of theirs and will be the first to admit Geddy Lee's voice sounds like a nasty cross between Daffy Duck and a vaccum cleaner. They just seemed to me to be much more humane and down to earth than the rest of the fantasy lyrics/progressive rock crowd. They also seemed to adapt to the musical changes of the time more adeptly than their brethern (for awhile anayways).

At their highpoint, the sound of those great guitar riffs, loud Rickenbacker bass and full kit drumming was awesome and made up for any lyrical/vocal deficiencies IMHO. I've never seen them live, but would like to.

Musically, lyrically and all the other things they do right lets me forgive the Geddy's voice. My favorite song is "Red Barchetta"... and 2112 is pretty much in my top 20 albums. Although I was unaware of Neil Peart's loss. Having Buddy Rich give the kudos that he did is pretty cool.

I guess Neil wrote a book called "ghost rider" about his grief from losing those two..Kindle here I come

On to a serious note - that kinda music still plays well in NM and probably always will. Other places I have lived, a station like 94 Rock wouldnt be on the airwaves, much less a dominate station. Its why bands like Rush, Maiden and the likes usually hit Albuquerque.

He was penning "Ghost Rider" durring the trip we ran into him. Even funnier was we had just seen them at the Tabernacle in Atlanta three days before. Pretty cool timing all round.

Good list, but Gregg Rolie doesn't really belong there ... he held on to some founding ownership shares of Journey after leaving. Probably still gets a few cents every time the radio plays Black Magic Woman and Evil Ways too.

Indeed. People from surrounding areas like Espanola, Santa Fe, Gallup, Grants, and even Farmington descend on ABQ for hard rock/metal shows as well as country shows.

When I need my fix of Billy Thorpe, Aldo Nova, Kim Wilde, Red Rider, as well as those you mentioned, I look no further than 94 Rock.
