I went to see Rush for the 26th time here on Long Island at Jones Beach, 15th row dead center. The show was GREAT! Geddy sounds awesome, he used Fender basses the whole show, a departure from breaking out the "Rick" at least for a few tunes. His fingers flew through tunes like YYZ and LaVilla, and it's interesting to see the new chordal approach he's taking on the newer stuff. For a little departure He came out with Alex and played an acoustic guitar for Resist, which was excellent. I love to watch a bass player who at "his" point in musical history tried to take the instrument in a new direction. Whether you like Geddy or not he gets granted this. Back when I was young the bassists I always aspired to play like were, Lee, Entwhistle, Sqire, Clarke, Pastorious, Graham, Bruce, Sheehan, Jones, to name a few. These days I especially admire, Vic Wooten and Stuart Hamm for the virtuosity they exude. I am sure there are many great players out there I am missing, either for non interest of the musical genre they're in or, just not enough time to cop them all. When I do come across them I give them their adulations due also, but having grown up with RUSH over the last 27 years...."GEDDY LEE STILL ROCKS" to me! It is always truly an experience to watch one of rocks premier bassists play.
