Hey it worked.

Thanks for the tutorials.

 

Never heard of this kid, nice job.

Great job getting a video posted!

Christian must be going through that voice changing time of his life but he did a fantastic job. His guitar sounded TOPS with great reverb! I liked his extended pre-ending.

Alex Zivojinovich covers The Spirit of Radio at 38:00.

 

Hey, isn't that Gary Weinrib singing in the background? Weird voice, but oddly entrancing.

TSOR starts at 5:20. It's a little sloppy but they make up for it with sheer exuberance. They blow the roof off the joint. The reggae section is actually quite hilarious.


The only explanation for any of this is that this is some church -Christian thing. Why are all those kids there? And the band is really into it.

So something else is going on here LOL

Does it count as a cover if Alex is playing it ? TSOR starts at about 50 seconds and quickly morphs into a flute  :blink:  and guitar instrumental.

They are performing at the Boy Scouts 100th Anniversary. They do a great job and rock the tunes better than anyone. Too bad they didn't learn more of lead guitar parts but the way they got past them is quite inventive.

Yes it counts! Singer does a great Jim Morrison. Nice of Alex to oblige under such seemingly impromptu circumstances. Apparently there are other clips posted of the same show and Alex plays Working Man with Sebastian Bach on vocals.

[Insert Ian Anderson is watching you masturbate joke here]

 

I half expected the zombie Jerry Garcia to jump in on that. I think it's fair to say Rush has always covered TSOR because it's impossible to match the album version.  :D

 

Great find, btw.  :2  thumbs up:

Judging by their list of videos they gigged in Virginia around 2010 to 2013. They even got on the TV a couple times doing some decent originals. The girl has really good retro vocal chops and the band was impressive for youngsters.

 

 

Here they regrettably let a fan from the audience sing TSOR.  :wacko:  B)

Bulgarian rock meets Rush in this great medley. Posted this some years ago. TSOR is at the beginning.

 

 

You must put aside the Alan nation.
