I could cry red tears of blood that flow like a waterfall from my mud shot eyes.
Perhaps being a drummer since the 6th grade has tainted my so called intellectual brain.
I remember being GUP on cassette on release day at Record Factory.
I was like fuckking Elliot in ET racing home on my bike as fast as I could to hear it.
I remember hating Signals when it first came out on new release day.
So I was soooooo excited to hear the next Rush record.
I listened to the album all the way through and I fuckking fell in love after one listen.
"RED LENSES" blew my MIND!
Perhaps I am wired differently? I zone into the music of RUSH, my brain sadly tends to tune out the lyrics.
Not sure if this is why you HATE "Red Lenses." It's a masterpiece. One of my all time favorites. "The Soviets are the blues."
The drumming so fuckking hard and fun to play too. It really makes me mad that they faded the song out the end when Neil goes fuckiing nuts.
LOVE LOVE IT!
I was 16 when I saw the GUP Tour.
I was smashed into the barrier under Geddy after many of us Rush Hooligans well "BUM RUSHED THE STAGE!" LOL!
Ged was staring down at me with a nervous face. I seriously thought they were going to stop the show.
It was fuckking incredible.
I was able to see the YYZ NEIL PEART SOLO RED LENSES sequence with my very own 16 year young eyes! I had "TEARS" in my eyes!!
BLEW MY FUCKKING MIND!
I saw the VAN HALEN 1984 that same year! Same venue COW PALACE!!! MIND BLOWN!
No wonder everyone thinks I'm on drugs and booze!!! I'm high as a fuckking kite right now! ROCK AND ROLL BABY! MY DRUG OF CHOICE!!!!

You’re not on drugs. Drugs are on you.

Hallucinogens once whispered to me, “Blaze, I need help. I’ve been on Earl for too long. Help me get off him. Please.”
