♫♪♫ For The Bass Players....♫♪♫ and anyone else that enjoys musicianship

 

  The other day I was out doing errands with the "boss" and commented about the lack of good music even on XMSIRUIS.  As an example I noted that "You never here Rush anymore since the drummer died"

If I had said "Neil Peart died" I would have gotten this:


 Needless to say I also got the standard comment of "They were awful" . I let it go. Sometimes you have to have the talent to know the battle just ain't worth fighting. 

Like this video. Here are a couple talented guys for different reasons.

One, is the soundtrack creator on the left. Two, is the guy on the right that knew when to hold 'em.


 Caution... This woman uses some spicy language so watch the volume......


Now, where was I , hmmmmmm, Oh ya, Rush and some bad ass Geddy Lee Bass Solo to enjoy.




From the comments on the youtube video, I think this guy summed it up well:


They were 3 Who sounded like 5 And played as 1.


Enjoy the day and be happy that you're not that guy in the first video.

  1. I tried to post this to Facebook. They refused because someone reported it as "abusive".

    1. The FB nazis have blocked me from linking other posts from here also. They're getting worse.

      I got 2 back-to-back penalties - 48 hours in #FaceBookGulag. Who’d have thought that an image of a 1930s reviled world leader in pajamas on a toboggan sliding down a rainbow and photoshopped onto the cover of a Golden Book would be so offensive?

    1. I'll give it a shot. My presets are only a few stations and I haven't spent any time scrolling the others.
      Thanks Maxx

  3. Anyone who tries to tell me that Rush was awful gets removed from my life. I have no need for classless philistines to be around me.

    1. Just the other day, Glorious Leader joe signed an Executive Order prohibiting any mention of Rush because, and I quote, "...Rush is horridly-awful, is it time for my pudding, did somebody see Doctor jill, First Son hunter is the most smart, red telephone..."

    2. You mean: "did somebody see Doctor Jill with my clean diaper...."?

    3. You should refer to them as classless uncircumcised philistines then you would be biblically correct.

  4. There will never be another Rush. Just like there will never be another Stevie Ray Vaughan.

  5. I can play the catalog from The Who, AC/DC, Tom Petty, the Cars, and countless others.
    But just once before I die, I'd like to nail "Tom Sawyer" without missing one beat.
    Maybe if I practice eight hours a day for six months. After I gather the 90-piece drum kit.

    In drumming terms, Neal Peart was God, in the same way that Clapton was for guitarists (and Eddie Van Halen was his son). Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa were merely prophets in the wilderness pointing towards the coming of Peart, and there will probably never be another of his magnitude my lifetime.

    And Rush, like the last iteration of Fleetwood Mac, is one of those cases where the total is orders of magnitude greater than the sum of its parts.

    The equation cannot be explained; it simply is.

    Thanks for Geddy's bass cut.

    1. Buddy Rich now that's a stretch, Neal was and his work still is great but Buddy is a great that has transcended time in the temporal and meter sense.

      Delete
    2. I've seen Buddy Rich drum solos, and solos by Peart.
      Buddy was pushing the envelope of meter. Peart was pushing the envelope of music.
      It's the difference between standing on Mt. Everest, and standing on the Moon, respectively.

  6. OTOH, the guy with Dishwasher Lady may enjoy highly sensual and long nights under the covers with her the other 28 days of her month.

  7. Loved the You Tube comment. Wis I`d thought of it. Saw Rush w/Head East in the very late 70`s. Still listen regularly while enjoying vids on an old desk-top, with a pretty decent audio system. Really enjoy your site, Sir. Hope the shoulder is better. Stay warm and safe. One more thing, if You don`t mind. Getty and Neil get shit-loads of coverage. Let`s please include. Alex. https://www.rush.com/band/alex-lifeson/ Peace
