(Everybody Got) Mixed Feelings, or I have anyway

I love how the few rubes on this site hate RTB so it must suck, and yet I see thousands of fans at the concerts I have attended who love it.
But you guys know best ...BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
It's the perfect time to empty the bladder and then pick up a beer on the way back.
The reverb sounds great in the men's room.

Oh god, Geddy's voice is gone, and Alex's arthritis is pretty evident in the drop in control he seems to have.
An awful shame.
Saw them in Atlanta, and what you said was pretty much true.
Saw them in Philly? Wow, totally different. Alex was terrific, like really terrific and Geddy sounded pretty good. No, he doesn't sound like he did 30 years ago, or annunciate as well, but I enjoyed it.
I have seen them live a bunch and have most of their concert videos. I've never notice Alex having extra picks on his mic stand before. I've commented to a friend of mine that I was amazed that I'd never seen him drop a pick. The times I've seen him close enough to watch him throw picks out, he's always had more in his pocket. It's possible I'm remembering wrong or just never noticed, but this video is the first I've seen them on his stand like that. I wonder if he's having trouble holding them.
I didn't notice Alex reach for a pick once, though I'm sure he must have. I also noticed Geddy has picks hanging on his mic stand, too. I thought that was odd, since he never uses a pick. Then, I remembered (and saw him) that he uses one when he plays the strumming part on his double neck on Xanadu. (And, he flung it in the crowd after the song.)
I still don't think they'll do another big tour, but they (especially Alex) played much better in Philly. The solo work on WYD and WM were much better than in ATL. No complaints there. The crowd was ferocious in their appreciation during WM.

He has a different guitar tech now, and likely having picks on the mic stand is just the way they work this now.

I was pleasantly surprised at how good both Ged & Alex sounded at the Detroit show. Sure Ged sang parts differently and in lower keys / registers, but doing so made it so he didn't have any embarrassing squeaks or squawks. I thought he did a great job. As for Alex, he had only 1 or 2 minor flubs but I and my musician buddy did notice them. Nothing big that would ruin a song tho. Just little shit we noticed.
