I asked him your question! And some guys in the Dream Theater Forum had questions as well, which I included there. Neal was one of the kindest musicians I ever spoke with.

No plans to interview Geddy, even though he lives VERY close to my place here in Toronto. As for Alex...well...

Yeah, and didn't ask if he still profits from his grand-grand-grandparents inventing the code...

I thought some songs were way too polished, but overall, a good effort. HE´s coming to Toronto in April, I´ll see if I can get tickets to it.

Just picked it up yesterday at the show. The show was really cool. Just Neal, his guitar and keyboard with some looping technology. He left it all on the stage.

Picked up the CD at the show and asked him to sign it after I thanked him for his music.

Neal is one of my fav modern artists.

His Similtude of a Dream album from 2016 was AMAZING and i think just a concept album should be.  that's how you do one, IMO.

He´s a class act, isn´t it? Such a kind guy, and even with us just talking on the phone you can tell he has quite a presence.

He always has been. During the V Tour when he was still with Spock's Beard I ran into him at Washington Square Park looking for a French Horn player to bring on stage later that night. Unfortunately, he never found one. Still a great show anyway.
