      Yep, it's hard to keep the spirit of a style and never copying the song. It
      s not Rush that I can't stand, it's their light on stage! I always got a
      headheache at the end. I love visual effects, but too much is like not
      enough...Sorry Cat :0) you knew it anyway. It was a chance the show was open
      air, I kept my sunglasses...Neil Peart is great for sure, but electronic
      sounds on a drums: I can't stand it. It's maybe something I have in common
      with Robb Reiner, ha? I liked Peart's solo until he began with the "bing"
      bong" "Twing" "Biiiiiiiinnnnnnnng!". I gave up.....

      Who's going to tell me the name of the album live of Uriah Heep with Easy
      Living, Gypsy, etc. on it? this album is black. I don't remember if it's a
      demon's face or a picture of UH live playing on the cover. It was a double
      album. Who remember?

      Tange :)

      Hey, Lips.

      I think you did a great job capturing the spirit
      of the old school.

      I guess the real challenge when someone tries to
      do that is to remain original. And that you did well.

      Cheers.
