YYZ hero


Some of you here—and you know who you are—will share my enthusiasm and anxiety about this coming Tuesday's release of the new Rush album, Snakes & Arrows. The first single, "Far Cry," didn't blow me away, but the fragment of "Spindrift" now available at the Rush site sounds different from anything they've done, so my hopes are high.

Anyway, for those of you I'm talking to—and you definitely know who you are—here's some "YYZ"/Guitar Hero 2 action for you:

Be sure to watch all the way to the end.

I feel some trepidation as well. My best buddy from high school (who got me into Rush and the Church at the same time) persuaded me to purchase tickets to two concerts on this tour, so I'm committed. At the very least, it'll be worth it just to be in the presence of Peart's drum solos.

You know, even if the album isn't great, a Rush concert ticket is still a fabulous bet. They put on an amazing, musical show, and I doubt you'll be disappointed.

But I'm happy to report that the new album is their best (IMHO) in 16 years.
