For the most part, it was the fact that they gave us mixed signals until Alex finally confirmed that they were done.
For me, I knew they were never going to tour again when I heard the rumors that Neil threw a hissy fit and threatened to quit halfway through R40 after Alex and Geddy proposed more dates.
“...that Neil threw a hissy fit...”
The pot calling the kettle black
Neil "threatened to quit"? I've never seen or heard anything of the kind. He committed to those limited North American dates and didn't want more. That's not "threatening to quit."
it's just fraroc pulling things from his ass again.
