RUSH 2112

"Attention All Planets of the Solar Federation. We have assumed control. We have assumed control..." This is the closing line from the song "2112" by "Rush." It's a 20 full minutes and takes up Side One of the LP. Everything I like about them is in that 20 minutes.

In 1976, I often listened to music at Sullin's Music Center, Spruce Pine, NC. That place had a huge influence on me when I was younger.

I used to think that being invaded by an alien species would be a bad thing and absolutely impossible. Now, we're gonna need a bigger red carpet!

In a conversation recently, the idea came up that there may not be any more "Happy New Years." I don't think that's going to be the case, but it's an disturbing thought. On my CD "Panes" and also on "Live at The Hideaway," I recorded "Unhappy New Year." I appreciate the opportunity to share it with you.

Unhappy New Year (Studio version.)


My uneasy chair,

Sparky's her name. Have a seat,

I'll just get the switch.

 

Peace, Y'all!
