I'm with you bigjohn...Rush is one of my all time favorite bands. I've been eyeing that Rio DVD for about a month now and need to just break down and buy it.

My favorite live album is A Show of Hands...I have it on Cassette, CD and VHS. Hopefull they'll re-master it to 5.1.

NOTE: I have heard on other forums that the Live in Rio DVD is not a great mix...waaaaaaay too much crowd and not enough RUSH.

Rent it first (if you can) before you purchase it...

Just my bit of sage advice, students...

I have enjoyed Rush very much since I was but a lad. I remember being embarassed in about 1978 (when I was 14) that I had not discovered them earlier. I literally wore out the vinyl on the first half-dozen albums. First time (of many) that I saw them was on the Permanent Waves tour. Absolutely life-changing experience at that age.

Generally, I like the older, artsy stuff like 2112 and Hemispheres (largely because it resonates with memories of musical discovery). I also like some of the newer, heavier stuff on Counterparts and Test for Echo. Their music often makes me "feel" in ways that I cannot easily qualify. My wife thinks they're overindulgent, pompous and dissonant. She could be right.

They put on a great live show. I'd like to go again this summer, but concerts are a much bigger challenge than they used to be, with kids and all. My 7 year old son (Alex, but not after Lifeson) seems to really enjoy Rush, which is of no small comfort.

I'll probably get the DVD through Netflix and check it out.

Some of Neal Peart's lyrics are really good. A lot of his lyrics are really really really bad.

If was in a 3 man band that could make that sound and put on that kind of live show, I might be a little overindulgent, pompous and dissonant.

I think there are types of people when it comes to Rush -
Those who love 'em
Those who hate 'em
and those who haven't heard anything but radio play and don't qualify anyway.

ha.

But what do I know, hell I own one of Prince's better albums - Controversy.

Hey, who typed that?

I enjoy most every kind of music - but must say that I'm not too hip to modern pop or hiphop. That's not a judgment on anyone, it just doesn't appeal to me.

Ribs on the smoker - that appeals to me. Didn't Cream sing that?

Yeah, it was the arrest thing I'm worried about. I'm seeing them in July, I think.

It's gonna rock.

Okay Doc Mark, I recognize that quote...where is it from?

I know I have read that somewhere and I can't for the life of me remember where...
