Well, I'm going out to Scranton, Pa. to see the boys on Friday night. This will be my first RUSH show. I've been listening to them for a long time with some interest, but frankly I was more into YES, ELP, GENESIS, etc. However, my interest really got "peeked" after reading Neil Peart's book "Roadshow" a couple of months ago. As great a drummer as he is, he may even be a better writer, and an incredibly interesting person. I really like people that reach great heights of fame but don't let it go to their heads (and a fellow two wheeler as well). I thoroughly enjoyed the book. "Snakes & Arrows" looks (I mean sounds) like a winner too. Haven't been to a show in quite some time so I'm really looking forward to it.




I believe he writes many of the lyrics to Rush songs as well...

I think he pretty much writes all of them, actually.

I've been fortunate enough to see quite a few concerts already this year, but last night's was the only one for which I stayed till the end.

Lynyrd Skynyrd was fantastic last night. Amazingly tight band, great mixing/sound, entertaining with the crowd.

I can honestly say I haven't enjoyed a concert this much since Steve Ray Vaughan...and I started as only a casual Lynyrd Skynyrd fan...

Doobie Brothers opened..great performance as well, but the mix was pretty muddy to me...

There was a favorable review of Feist's show in the LA Times (we get it at work). Sounds like you'll be in for a treat. Haven't picked up her latest release yet.

Ooh, I want to see Feist. I'm still liking how her voice slices into me on "So Sorry" on the M80s.

I saw RUSH on Friday night in Scranton, Pa. They are the ultimate professionals; excellent show as expected with some nice special effects as well. With all of the talk surrounding Neil Peart's drumming skills (and he is simply amazing, great drum solo in the second half of the show) I never fully appreciated how good Geddy Lee's bass playing is. He was awesome, and contrary to a couple of comments regarding his voice not reaching some of the high stuff in the Virginia show, his vocals were outstanding Friday night. Maybe he just had an off night in Virginia. I don't want to get too detailed about the show so as not to spoil it for those of you still looking forward to seeing them during this tour. Suffice to say you will not be disappointed.

My only gripe was with the venue. The infrastructure getting into the site is not meant for moving that many cars. Once you get off of the highway (which took awhile because of the back up) you have to travel over several local streets which were completely grid locked. It took us so long to get in that we missed the first couple of songs, and of course the video intro. Anyone going to a show at Montage Mountain in Scranton should make sure they get there really early. Oh well, at least it was a beautiful evening and a great show once we got settled.
