    Anybody buy the new Rush - "40th" - Permanent Waves?

    I'm not buying it since I've already bought the album several times over, but I agree with your take regarding the drum sound on Fly By Night! I'm a huge Rush fan and have thought the same thing about the crisp and raw drums on that record for many years.

    What album or song made you start playing guitar?

    I started on bass, and that inspiration first struck when I was 12 and had a ride in the back of my brother's Cutlass Supreme that had a killer stereo in it. I was generally a country music fan at the time, but my bro popped in "Moving Pictures," and cranked "Tom Sawyer." The grit and rumble by...

    What is it about Rush's "Losing It"?

    Plus the electric violin doesn't exactly raise the spirits within the song! But it's a great tune regardless. Lyrically it's one of Neil's best.

    Thinking about Keith Emerson's suicide... So sad!

    I'm a huge ELP/Emerson fan, and was devastated at the news of his death. I was at my desk at the office when I learned of it. I find it incredibly ironic that Keith was a very outspoken opponent of gun rights, yet that's precisely what brought his demise. :(

    ELP ~ Newsweek interview with Greg Lake and Carl Palmer

    My guess is that these were two separate phone interviews which were pasted together. But other than that uncomfortable exchange, this was an excellent article. HUGE fan of ELP here.

    Still one of the coolest guy in the whole world...

    EJ is my favorite artist on this planet, largely due to what a great guy he is. To say nothing of his musical ability! LOL Very easy-going and cool dude to meet. I have an Electromagnets press kit that he had a minor freak-out over when I showed it to him and asked him to autograph it. He...

    Nick Menza Died???

    Man, I am really bummed. Between Nick and Gar, the two most creative Megadeth drummers are now gone. Nick was my favorite of them by far. :(

    Anyone here admit to being more of a guitar enthusiast, than a guitar player?

    That's me to a T. I have no shortage of stress. Largely because of this, I don't have much time to play, but my guitars (and music in general) are my mental getaway. They're all functional works of art.

    Metal riff masters- Who is your favorite?

    Mustaine for me; nobody else comes close! As mentioned in the OP, "SF,SG...SW!" is stellar. It and "Endgame" are my favorite Megadeth albums and both are riff city.
