Thanks for the update Jordan! I can't wait for this show! I heard the new stage will look super-cool too... much different than the stage for the Prog Nation tour?
[quote=Soulfire]Technically, none of them are "Mangini's" drum parts, they're Petrucci's.[/quote]
In my opinion, this is not accurate. :)
In Rush, almost 100% of the tracks are music by Lee & Lifeson and lyrics by Peart.
I'm sure that Neil is also presented demos, and uses them to see what he is starting with.
Nobody ever said that none of Neil's drum parts are his, just because someone else wrote the song.
[quote=Soulfire]And that was a let down for me on the album. I felt like the drum parts were just background, and Mangini didn't have enough room for creativity. Hopefully live and on the next album that will be improved though.[/quote]
I agree that Mangini walked a fine line on this album. He had to make it sound like Dream Theater, and may have even thought "What would Portnoy do?" at times. My best guess is that it will be a different story on the next CD. Imagine how tight they will all be by next year, after the US and European tours!
[quote=dspurdy][quote=Eric_from_Annecy]HUgh syme also made artworks for a lot of Rush's album[/quote]
Not only did he do most of their covers, but he also added a lot to their music. He was responsible for the crazy "spacey" sounds at the beginning of 2112. I believe he has been a guest musician on other albums as well.[/quote]
On Rush's Permanent Waves album, Hugh Syme played piano on the track "Different Strings".
He is also the man waving in the background, on the album's cover.
