Ok, so not really. But if there were, would anyone here have the balls to show up? This is a blind audition. Geddy and Alex will pick solely by ability, not name recognition.

Same for Alex or Geddy. If either of them broke their fingers and could not play again, would you go to a blind audition?

Once upon a time, before psoriatic arthritis permanently bent 2 fingers on my left hand, I may have tried a bass audition. Now theres not enough fluidity in my finger movement.

Who here has the goods?

Jokes aside, I hope 2/3 of Rush do come back together, soon-ish, and create some new music with a new member or two under a different name. :)

I'd have happily given it a shot back when I was in my Austin-based Rush tribute band (though I would have stood no chance of getting the gig), but now I can't even play the intro to TSOR without embarrassing myself.

The drummer in my Rush tribute band put together a video mashup of his favourite parts. I'm pretty sure he'd have the balls to show up, though he'd need a few days to recover :codger: .
As for me, I would never have the guts to show up for for an Alex audition. Not in a million years. :notworthy:

Wouldn't try put for Alex's position, but with a lot of pre-practice, reckon I could have an outside shot at Geddys basswork...of course they'd still need a keyboard player and a singer, so nah really.........

I don't see his balls resting on his own chin though. So they can't be Portnoy.

What is Lars Ulrich doing now?  He just missed the cut to replace Portnoy, maybe he can take a shot and replacing Neil.
