Title: "In The End" - What will YOU do?
Post by: Dave_Pierce on January 30, 2003, 20:11:03 pm
No one knows for sure (even the band) exactly when RUSH will call it a day. (Slim wished they'd done so in 1987

We've had this exact conversation already, actually Dave - I'll see if I can find the thread and post an update to it so it bubbles to the top again.

My ideal timeline would have seen them retiring after HYF, then getting together for a reunion gig at Newcastle City Hall in 1997, and recording a reunion EP - Superconductor / Test For Echo / Show Don't Tell / Totem / Carve Away The Stone - then calling it quits for good.

Yes but whatever happens, and whoever you are, you will always have your favourite music & memories, so you are well off.
And as I already suggested in the previous incarnation of this thread  - there is always the tribute bands to feed your live need.

When the time does come I'll probably lock myself in a room with a damn good sound system and play my vinyl copy of 'Archives' for the first time since I got it, very loud all 3 albums straight through in tribute,

Actually I'll have to play 'Afterimage' first.

Dave

Quo are perhaps the rock antithesis to Rush, Uk denim wearing perennial heads down 3 chord rock. A bit of an institution here in the UK.

I'll probably start rumours that they are planning a come back tour in order to keep the spirit going and thus avoid dealing with the inevitable feeling of loss - alternatively, I'll just try to find my 'Leonard Cohen at his most miserable (the even darker than normal years)' compilation tape and retreat to a dark room for a year.

Grab a beer (or Scotch) and enjoy Hemisperes....
(or some live DVD, depending on how many have been released).
And continue with my life, enjoying their catalogue of music every now and then...

That's far too sensible a post, Ron. Go back and think of something more obsessive (American) lmao

Ok, Chris, I would run for American president, win with a minority vote and start war on all the countries that have citizens that dared to critize the REAL holy trinity.

Better, Chris??  ;D
