That pretty much explains why I don't get a boner for DT anymore.

Well in his (and DT's) defense, shouldn't we consider the fact that Portnoy is a big disciple of Neil's?

I just thought it was crazy that Mike Portnoy was in KC to see Rush.

That probably didn't make sense but sterile is one of the words I could describe DT with right now.

It does seem strange that Portnoy was there considering the Maiden tour is in Canada right now and even on a day off that's still a decent trip from like Saskatoon to KC. He has to go through three states to get to Kansas. Plus all the border crossing BS you gotta go through. Unless he took a plane than there wouldn't have been much of a problem getting there.

It's odd that what the reviewer is criticizing Rush for is the actualy reason I love them live. They play the songs perfectly, the exact way every fan knows them from listening to the CD, with the exception of the extended jams they do at the end of CTTH and Bravado live. Rush has been playing like that live for most of their touring life. So, for a writter to be taking issue with that now, at this point in Rush's career, shows what an idiot he truely is.

Also, Rush doesn't even listen to their own music at all until it's time for them to tour and they listen to what songs they've decided to play. That's also why Neil's drum fills are exactly as they are on the albums. They're not the type of band that sits around all day and goes "how can I make this more intresting live?" They're Rush they don't have to do that live because their songs are good enough the way they are originally. Seems the writer doesn't have much knowledge of how Rush operates. But then again most reviewers of anything in music don't seem to at all.

It's the online music blog for the Kansas City Star. The people they send for "heavy" concerts (rare as that is for them to go to) are terrible reviews. They get there only for the headliner, and it's painfully obvious the people reviewing it have no idea what they're talking about.

E-mail 'em and say you want Jackson of http://www.mandatory-metallica.blogspot.com to be a reporter ^_^
