What's this about?

To the right of the stage. I was really confused, they looked like Lee's amps, but halfway through the gig, some guy came on dressed as a chef, opened the front of the amp like a cooker/fridge, and started oily what looked like roast chickens!!

What's the story!?

Rush has been playing with a variety of appliances and such items on stage for a while... probably the most common has been the coin operated front loading dryer... which they will periodically have somebody feed it quarters so it keeps running. It's because they're weird...

hahahaha its a joke


since Geddy has stopped using bass amplifiers they have replaced them with appliances (dont as me why)

Oh and by the way that chef dude you mentioned is actually Rush's main cook, Frenchie (real name Bruce French). They did it as a joke to make the concert even better.

If Rush was a fast food place they'd be White Castle cuz there cheap and they give people the runs

I only recently got into Rush. I'd gone years without realising how awesome they are. To think it only took the first few seconds of Tom Sawyer to make me buy Moving Pictures almost totally blind, followed a bunch of other albums – Permanent Waves, Hemispheres, A Farewell To Kings, Signals and Grace Under Pressure.

Again, all those were bought blind without listening to a single track. Currently awaiting the arrival of 2112, and then I'll keep going backwards and forwards like I've been doing so far. The aim is to get every one until Rush and Presto, after which I'll give their '90s stuff a try.

Favourite songs at the moment – Countdown (totally in love with the verse that goes "All systems check... T-minus 9"), Limelight, The Camera Eye, Tom Sawyer, The Spirit Of Radio, and Cygnus X-1.

I might see them soon I hope

Well, I have 6 of their albums and have seen them twice. Great band.

Hemispheres is the best album ever.
LOL
#29
A Farewell to Kings is one of the most perfect albums I've ever heard. Signals is also great although there's a couple of stinkers on there. I don't at all see the excitement about Moving Pictures and Permanent Waves, I think Hemispheres and 2112 own these two into oblivion.

Fly by Night is also a seldom mentioned favourite of mine.

Saw them last October and they were excellent, the tightest band Ive ever seen, but does anyone else really, really, really wish they'd been around 30 years ago to see them? Imagine seeing Cygnus and 2112 live in their entirities(pl?) with everyone in the audience stoned out of their brains...
Thank God im an atheist

Ok, so, bearing in mind that I'm more into metal and the like than old-school prog, where would you guys recommend a Rush-n00b like me start?
R.I.P. My Signature. Lost to us in the great Signature Massacre of 2014.

^ 2112 will win anyone over...

Also, it is blasphemous to say this as an avid Rush fan, but is Snakes and Arrows good? I haven't heard it yet.

i liked snakes and arrows a lot. i would consider it a top 10 and maybe even top 5 album for rush. i haven't read any reviews on it so i don't really know what the general opinion about it is. some of my friends like it more than a farewell to kings or moving pictures.
#33
Neil Pert is the best drummer in rock music ever, if you wanna argue that ill kill you.
His drum solo's are the best.
#34
I saw them live before I really had any of their music, and now I love them.

I loved Snakes and Arrows. As a whole, I thought it sounded a bit calmer and more laid back than the other Rush albums that I've heard, but its tracks are consistently solid.

EDIT: Having newly listened to the acoustic licks in your profile, I wholeheartedly recommend that you buy or pirate Snakes and Arrows. One of them (I've now forgotten which) made me think of The Main Monkey Business, my favorite of the album's instrumentals.

Rush is one of the best bands ever. Geddy Lee is argueably THE best bassist ever. Neil Peart is an excellent drummer. Alex Lifeson is overshadowed by the first two, but he is a great guitarist and Rush wouldn't be the same without him. Moving Pictures, 2112, and A Farewell to Kings are my favorite albums of theirs.

As would I. In fact, I'd definitely consider it a Top 5 for Rush. When I purchased the album and listened to it the first time my initial reflection (overall) was "Meh." I enjoyed songs such as Far Cry, The Main Monkey Business, and We Hold On, but the rest of the album wasn't anything special.

Shortly thereafter I saw Rush live. I had listened to the album several more times prior to that, and it had grown on me some more, but it wasn't until after the Rush concert that I really liked the album. I'm not sure if I simply appreciated it more because I saw the work that was put into it replicated before me, or if my mind accepted the mastery of it.

Snakes & Arrows is now one of my most listened to Rush albums.
