I doubt Olivia has changed her mind yet.

They're not finished until they don't tour. Since that hasn't happened yet, stay tuned.

I have my fingers crossed that Ged and Alex getting together for the Yes hall-of-fame induction will be a catalyst for them to want to do something together (if they haven't already)

A couple things: it's wonderful to see Geddy out and about pursuing his passions. I don't know, but to me it's curious he's shopping with his bass tech. Does Scully live there and they were just hanging out? Who knows... But it seems interesting regardless. I don't think there's any doubt Geddy and Alex want to play. At least they did last fall. The demand would be HUGE overseas, and they could play probably a dozen or more dates in the US/Canada too. Neil is the wild card. But after reading his book and seeing TSS, I would be shocked if he ever plays live again. I'd love to be wrong. There's also no hints on Twitter either. So I'd say Geddy will play at the induction ceremony or will just make a solo record.

I hope for more solo material, especially from Alex. Would be cool if he and Rik Emmett did a whole release.

Anybody seen anything to move this needle in the last four months?  Not me.
BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING! Jesus f***ing Christ already. Move on. There's no tour forthcoming from Rush as we know them.

The fact that they haven't toured does not mean they're not touring. Until they don't tour, there's no reason to believe they won't tour.

That's deep, and ridiculous. Like trying to prove a negative. The fact that Jesus hasn't returned doesn't mean he isn't returning. Until he doesn't return, there's no reason to believe his isn't coming back.  Sounds kind of silly, doesn't it? Actually, that's what keeps Christianity going and the money coming in to support the churches that preach that crap.

It's already been a year and a half, and Neil has given zero indication that he misses it.  Exactly how long will you wait before deciding they're not touring?  5 years?  10 years?  You do realize they're all around mid sixties in age NOW and that Rush music requires quite a bit of dexterity to play, right?

Believe what you like, but we have a better chance of being visited by the Great Pumpkin.

Exactly. They haven't toured  because they're not touring now. When they should be touring and they don't tour, then you'll know they're not touring. But that hasn't happened yet.

Stalking and taking pictures of Neil.  I figure the best way to get him back on tour is to let him know how much he means to me..I mean us....

I did a lot of work for my new job in Boston and the surrounding areas in Nov/Dec.
