Der Trommeler = O Baterista?

No YYZ though, and you can't have a Rush concert without YYZ, so i'll be passing on this one.
Although Roll the Bones and Red Barchetta are becoming appealing...

man, your passing this because of no YYZ? on der trommeler, you could be right. i dont see anything that could be the solo other than that, but they could have incorperated it into a song.

EDIT: yeah, der trommeler translates to "the drummer", so that would be the solo

dude, this is gonna be amazing, i really have to get this. as for no YYZ, that is really dissapointing, but that is one bad thing missing, and if u own Rush in Rio(which i will, somtime, eventually) there is YYZ on that, but i mean, u can't pass up Roll the Bones, Red Barachetta, A Passage To Bangkok, Cygnun X-1 2112 Earthshine and Tom Sawyer just due to a lack of YYZ. i'm personally kinda sad not to see Closer to the Heart, but i know they don't play that much anymore, the did it in Rio though, because the fans love it

its also really nice to see they played some of their less well known songs, ie. mystic rhythems, force ten, behind the wheel. and some stuff from a counterparts, though i do hope they play double agent on the next tour.

HELLMO, they actually only played closer to the heart at 2 shows on the tour, mexico and rio.

also, lets hope some more info on neils DVD arises soon, namely the release date.

I think it looks awesome, I'd love to see those studio performances. As for YYZ, I like it, but I've always preferred the studio version to the Rush in Rio version. However, the Exit...Stage Left version with Peart's solo is amazing. I found a video of it, absolutely mind-blowing. Geddy's pretty funny looking in it, the black suit with the huge nose is great.

EDIT: I just realized that the R30 concert was filmed on my birthday last year. Sweet.

Haha yea, thats how I was with RIO. That DVD was perfect. amazing everything except the dang crowd was LOUD. It even had comedy (well i started cracking up when alex picked up the cardboard guitar and started playing it on the bonus features)

^isnt it on the chronicals DVD.

BTW, to sum up the chronicals DVD for those of you who havent seen it, its great songs with live or studio video for the first half, the the rest are great songs with some of the worst music videos ever made (early distant warning is the worst, but big money is a close second. subdivisions isnt too bad.)

it even has video from exit...stage left for red barchette.


EDIT:question for anyone who went to one of the shows on the tour, was resist the album virson? i like the accustic virson a lot better, the album has too much stuff going on at once.

Wooo, got me a special edition version at play.com ( http://www.play.com/play247.asp?page=title&r=R2&title=795112&p=57&g=72&pa=sr ), this is going to be so awesome, I wonder if he will be using his Paragons, I'd love to hear them live.

2112drummer
10-13-2005, 02:59 PM
he'll have the Paragons for sure. I know because i saw Rush last year in Toronto. What i'm disappointed about is that they're cutting out 8 whole songs form the performance. Now does this mean that they didn't perform them that night or that they've been edited out?

however, the studio vids sound like redeeming qualities.

spike9908
10-13-2005, 02:59 PM
man, only going to be about $35 too.

2112, they probably didnt play them. they could have easily made the DVD longer. i mean Rio was almost 3 hours, this is barely over 2.

I'm glad it has "Subdivisions" on it.One thing that I didn't like about Rush in Rio was the fact that it didn't include "Subdivisions","Time Stand Still" and "Fly by night".

dont forget neils new DVD "anatomy of a drum solo". speeking of which, NEW INFO!!!!

set release date, NOVEMBER 1!!!!!!

My instructional video on drum soloing, Anatomy of a Drum Solo, is almost a reality. Or, it will be October 14th, our deadline to hand in the editing and artwork. Or it will be November 1st, the projected release date.

Too many elements of it are still in the “changeable” stage for me to say too much more about it, but I can say that I’m very excited with how it’s coming together. Paul Siegel and Rob Wallis, from Hudson Music, have been great collaborators once again, as they were with A Work in Progress, and I’ve also had the support and expertise of my other long-time collaborators, engineer Paul Northfield, photographer Andrew MacNaughtan, and art designer Hugh Syme.

So it’s all going “my way,” and I’m glad about that.

The band’s “R30” concert DVD is also approaching its release date — in fact, the same deadline of October 14th, the same release date of November 1st, and the same art director. So we’ve been keeping Hugh busy. And it’s not just dreaming up a nice front cover that takes so much time and effort; there are all the little details involved in a complete package: slipcover front, spine, and back, front cover, spine, back cover, undertray, lettering, booklet, disc label, booklet, credits, photos — it’s a big job, especially doing two at once.

My book about the R30 Tour, Roadshow: A Concert Tour By Motorcycle (shortened by one subtitle this week — leaving out Landscape With Drums), is all ready for its final revision, just as soon as I get all this video stuff off my desk. I have collected a pile of input from my editors Paul McCarthy and brother Danny, plus a select few readers, and for now, it’s kind of nice to let it sit and “cool off” until I’m ready to attack it single-mindedly.

dude, the DVD is going to have 2 unreleased solos (one from counterparts tour, the other from the hamburg show on the R30 tour.)

Anatomy of a Drum Solo presents newly-recorded, in-studio footage of Neil discussing, in detail, his approach to soloing. Using a solo recorded in September, 2004 in Frankfurt, Germany, as a framework, Neil talks about each segment of this nine-minute tour de force that is a feature of each Rush performance. He describes the inspiration and the conceptual thinking behind each part of the solo and discusses, and often demonstrates, the technique necessary for playing that segment.

Also included are two “explorations” -- completely improvised workouts at the drums, each over thirty-minutes long; a never-before-released solo recorded in Hamburg, Germany in September, 2004 ("Ich Bin Ein Hamburger"); “O Baterista”, Neil's Grammy(r) Award-nominated solo (previously released on the Rush in Rio DVD); two full Rush performances from Frankfurt ’04, all shot from the perspective of the drum cameras; interviews with Lorne Wheaton, Neil’s drum tech, and Paul Northfield, Rush co-producer and engineer; a full-color booklet, a photo gallery and more.
