Good show Nate caught the rebroadcast. Speaking of Bands Pink Floyd was way ahead of their time they were almost prophets in many songs.Pigshttp://www.blinkx.com/watch-video/pink-floyd-pigs-on-the-wing-part-1-2-in-dit/3jZbq0Sh6rTMMi_kK76DYA

Wish I could have called in, dude. I was on a plane back from my latest consulting gig (this will soon pass...). I can opine somewhat in the same key with you. Although, I dunno *how* could have listened to enough Kiss to know which songs you hate so much. If there's any band I know nothing of, it's Kiss.But... Six... WTH>>>... friggin (sputter) STEVE VAI??? Where...ever...have you got the impression I'm a Vai fan? Someone needs some serious schooling. Vai is fast and knows his chord inversions, but that's about it. He's a machine. And that's exactly why I don't care for his stuff. I'm not even that much of a Satriani fan.No, if you want a rock guitarist who has a good mix of virtuosity and soul, you need to listen to Eric Johnson. And he's a good singer too.Six's problem is that he's a member of the latter end of Generation X, and by that time GenX had lost all appreciation of excellence in any area (except mad Linux skillz). Six prefers this bizarre, abstract post-mod alternative music with out-of-tune guitars and incomprehensible lyrics. Because irony, you know.
yeah... Six's music appreciation is ... well... wanting.
Nate this may help people understand things like 3/4 time. Count people 1..2..3. 1..2..3. Nate this is the one of the best to explain it and it is called a waltz to old folks.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfZJxOQpHkE
Or to even older folks, a minuet.
He's a machine. And that's exactly why I don't care for his stuffI feel the same way about RUSH.The most technically proficient musicians rock has ever seen, but with all of the soul of that robot from Lost in Space.
Red Barchetta alone invalidates your point.Now it's true that Rush pioneered a certain robotic sound at times, but they used it for effect. It was part of their art, and it connected to their lyrics. Not the same thing as the Vai/Satriani scenario.And listen to Alex Lifeson's solos in Limelight or Villa Strangiato -- way more raw soul than something Vai or Satriani could muster.
I've seen RUSH live twice.Both times they put the audience to sleep.That alone invalidates your point.I like the band, they're incredible musicians.I wouldn't have gone twice if I didn't.But the animatronic band at Country Bear Jamboree plays with more soul and passion.
Rush... put the audience to sleep? what the hell are you blathering about?
I'm talking about an entire stadium full of people.Sitting in their seats.Barely stirring.For the entire show.Including the encore.Twice.
Huck, what years were these two concerts?

@rycamorYou played me something by Steve Vai once. It stuck in my head, code monkey.And, since we're talking about music, I WAS THERE!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xG4oFny2Pk
@Outlaw XYeah, Floyd was light years ahead of everyone else. Listening to what they were doing in the early 70s makes their contemporaries look like complete jokes.
Vidad, I was sitting in the living room of y brothers house and he just got a new hammer dulcimer.. I was watching a Cowboys with his kids while he was in the back room and by halftime he was kicking its butt. I was amazed. as Rich Mullins had just died and he made the that hammer dulcimer sing. I waked into his bedroom and was blown away.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaNwTYJrYtA
VidadYou know I am going to quit faking tough guy. Tears were rolling Out of my eyes and I was singing it for my brother While he played. Rich Mullins predicted his own death in that song.I was never so touched.
David Bowie???we can never discuss music again.
Vidad said...@Outlaw XYeah, Floyd was light years ahead of everyone else. Listening to what they were doing in the early 70s makes their contemporaries look like complete jokes.Same deal for Rush. It's funny to me that people think of Rush as an 80s band. Their first 3 albums were released in '74-75. Imagine how freaky they must have sounded to people who thought Deep Purple and The Who were "out there".I know they were baby boomers, but some baby boomers turned rock into a real art form. Pink Floyd started it, but it was picked up very quickly by Kansas, Rush, Genesis etc...
@rycamorTotally, totally. You listen to early Rush now and it still sounds fresh. The Police are the same way.But listen to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young or Bread and they've gone stale.@NateBowie is just too far beyond your limited comprehension. Get back to "Legs" and "Tush," mmmkay?
Favorite guitar virtuoso:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCENW-IrKTU
@Outlaw XRich Mullins should've been on my list. Love the guy and his music. And yeah... the hammered dulcimer... amazing. There's a loyalty that's deeperThan mere sentimentA music higher than the songsThat I can singThe stuff of earth competesFor the allegianceI owe only to the giverOf all good thingsSo if I stand let me stand on the promiseThat You will pull me throughAnd if I can't let me fall on the graceThat first brought me to YouIf I sing let me sing for the joyThat has borne in me these songsBut if I weep let it be as a manWho is longing for his home
Huck, what years were these two concerts?2002 in Charlotte and 2004 in Irvine.You're talking out your assWouldn't be the first time, but I know what I saw.Admittedly from the cheap seats, but still.And don't get me wrong.I love Rush. I'd go again. But what I don't think a lot of people realize when they go, if they've never been, is that they play live exactly how they play in the studio. Technical perfection, but...
Rush fans go insane at concertsThis was not my experience.
Huckleberry, those sound like "hate facts." Heh heh.
A+ Rich Mullins. A+ Rush. The only thing I can say regarding Huckleberry's concerts is that Peart was really concentrating on a) getting back to it after his long dark teatime of the soul following the tragedies and that b) Vapor Trails' audience was (from what I understand - did not see any of those concerts) somewhat - I dunno - appreciative and subdued, but simultaneously ravingly excited. I don't want to make it sound religious or blasphemous, but the first year and a half of the return to music was slightly different. But Rush concerts are undeniably great. Were they theater shows?I, for one, thought that Rush was finished after about the 2nd year of the hiatus. I couldn't conceive that something like Clockwork Angels would be on its way 15 years later.But boy, I miss Mullins more and more every day. What a human.
