I am a broken Rush record on this forum and everyone who knows me is sick of this but it's an interesting story regardless of the outcome.
Hoping to add some entertainment in your life. I'm listening to some Blue Oyster Cult as I type.
My ex brother in law knew the guy who ran the Concord Pavilion back in 2002.
We literally parked next to Neil's bus.
Both motorcycles were out on display. LOL
I was with my ex wife too. It was just the three of us.
My ex bro in law is still amazing and in my life today. I love him.
As for my ex wire, I mean ex wife. "The way out is the way in" bitch. LOL! Sorry.
I'll reel it in. She's not that bad Mother of my amazing daughters. Suxxx paying "The Big Money" no matter where you live on the earth. This is public record. I have no fear or care. 73 knows me and he is fuckking cool.
Should have been banned 12 years ago. LOL!
Where was I?
Neil Peart. My total influence as a drummer. My MAN! My total inspiration and love next to my amazing parents.
So Johnny, my EX and I park next to Neil's bus.
I'm like little Earl boy in Toys R Us back in 1977 wishing to buy every Star Wars toy in the building.
I literally walked or waltz around Neil's bikes. Then we walked in. Met the guy and got our VIP free tickets.
As Wendy, My EX, Johnny and I were actually just walking away from Neil's bus, we all hear a......."HELLO! HELLO!"
I turn around and I see Neil.
He is dressed in black from neck to toe. Looked like a red bloated drunk Johnny Cash. I kid you not.
I thought Neil was talking to me, but he was trying to flag down a security guard.
Not because of me, he wanted something.
But in my young mind, I though he was flagging me down.
One of the greatest top ten Rush Fans on the planet Earth of all time! LOL!
Oh I have the credentials. HA!
I walked right up to Neil as he stayed close to his bus door.
All I wanted to say was...... "Thanks Neil I've been playing the drums for 30 years thanks to you!"
I didn't want a thing from him.
But I couldn't get the words out and hell I am not some lame star struck person.
I've met so many nice famous people on the earth.
Instead I just gazed into Neil's eyes.
Neil gazed back.
I had a 10 second window.
Two deers in headlights.
I had a fuckking Mexican Standoff with Neil.
Tarantino would have been proud!
As I inched closer Neil recoiled like a recluse spider back on his bus and closed the door!
I turned around and walked back up to my ex wife and ex bro in law.
I had a few tears in my eyes and we walked into the venue.
My buddy Paul who used to be in the prog band Enchant and Doug Ott who is still kicking ass in Enchant were near me.
I told them my story. They laughed.
A senseless late night Enchant plug.
Blueprints Of The World! LOL!
I love my Enchant friends!
I hung out with Geddy and Alex on the GUP IV Tour in October of last year.
Met the most amazing people along the way.
I think if you want to live a wonderful you have to take risks and just go for it.
I've met Geddy, Alex and Neil in 2002.
They are my guys.
Should have been 1980.
Yet another story.
I won't bore you the reader.
Rush is my band.
Regardless of this forum or just amazing people I meet on this Earth.
I have a million stories about this band and people who I have met.
Yet, I'm learning to keep my mouth shut even though I type this shit with my fingers. LOL!
RUSH RULES FOR ALL ETERNITY!!!!!
I have so many stories about this band that I can't even share on here and I have not filter.
I am not an asshole or some egomaniac like some on here think of me as such.
I've met so many amazing incredible humans on here.
I love you all so much.
There are always a few rotten eggs in every carton. To those of you who dislike my existence? Cool. F U!
Go listen to Nightwish or some fuckkin shite band.
I'm good and golden.
"I LOVE THE NIGHT!"
BLUE OYSTER CULT!
I'm hight on angel dust, meth and crack right now!
