Sirius XM is running a Rush/Neil Peart tribute on ch 27.
Never thought I'd be listening to "The Necromancer" at work!
They're announcing a special program on Neil tonight, Monday January 13, at 7pm EST.
What a painful loss. Prayers and condolences for his young daughter, wife, parents, siblings, Alex, Geddy, extended family, etc.
Thank you for all the great music and concerts. Thank you for being a great example!
Maybe seeing all 3 together in a residency (as opposed to a tour) or in a video playing together?
I agree with others that no one could reasonably ask anything more of them. That's not the point.
My understanding is that Geddy and Alex themselves want to continue. That's not fans asking them...
Just read the new Rolling Stone interview with Geddy Lee where he discusses the Hemispheres album and his new bass book that he's been working on for the past 3 years. Article link: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/rush-geddy-lee-interview-prog-rock-hemispheres-738828/
Just saw this video using TC Electronic mini pedals to get Andy's clean tone. I assume they're using the DynaQ (Dyna Comp) tone print for the compressor, and the Andy Summers custom tone prints for the delay and chorus. Andy Summers' tones start at 18:30.

It's interesting to see how many apparently perfect people seem to absolutely thrive on slagging others and going out of their way to publish on the internet what they perceive others' faults to be.
Judge, jury, executioner.
Funny, I just started listening to Grace Under Pressure again a few months ago. Great album, tasty guitar parts and super cool guitar tones. Between the Wheels is just a killer track.
I always thought the album artwork was cool too.
Kick ass song!!! I was watching a fairly well known and highly respected contemporary guitarist's gig on youtube when I saw the link to the Ry Cooder track. After 4 minutes of listening to Cooder's new track, I understood everything that was wrong with what I had been watching on youtube...
I've really enjoyed listening to Tyler's cover of the album several times. It's so close that I forget it's not the original version.
What's really cool is how he matched all the parts and instruments so closely. Strat, Les Paul, Rickenbacker, Jazz Bass, synthesizer patches, vocal effects...
