As one politician put it., "real, real, reality." Or not.

Totally unrelated to this thread, but I had to do a long unexpected drive last night to fix a technical issue, so I popped in the Clockwork Angels live CD and when it got to Red Sector A, I was actually totally blown away by the use of strings on that track. It gave the song, which is an extraordinary piece of music and lyrics (in my books one of Rush's top five songs ever), a completely added emotional and sonic dimension.

Total fantasy, but I'd love it if the boys considered doing a residency; two or three nights at one venue, with the string ensemble, maybe even beef it up. If you can make YYZ work with backing strings, I think you could build an entire show around that idea.

Just have to say, despite a few issues I have with the sound on some of the tracks, the Clockwork Angels live album is quickly approaching my favorite live Rush release.

Jupe: I am a fan of man! It is so entertaining when MG opens up as it were. I would buy him a brewski as well.

#2 Jim - mg and I butt heads every few months and then we exchange cool bands to listen to after that. He introduced me to Phideaux, I introduced him to Subsignal etc. it's all cool, no big deal, in fact, if I ever see mg at a Rush concert I'll shake his hand and buy him a beer!Not that he's attended any Rush concerts recently, but has plenty to say about them....wink wink.

Music is just a part of their lives, not everything..Remember Spirit of THE real radio. Waiting for Neil's updates after the tour, winter memories from QC "cottage" and so on. All the best to the best and winter wonderlands !

Jim, #2


Now, I wonder how much Neil is making off this? D'oh!

Just joking...

Anyways, I wonder how much longer before Ged calls Alex to come over to play around a bit in the basement?

Alright a new thread. That last one was getting rather testy.
