This is my first post so forgive me if this has been covered.

I remember seeing a video of an adult Alex watching his younger self on Come On Children explaining to his parents that he didn't see a reason to stay in school since he was going to be a rock star.  I loved the expression on adult Alex's face and wanted to show it to someone but can't find it again.

Rush is my favorite band and they were my first concert ever on the Power Windows tour.  Unfortunately that was also the only time I got to see them.  I tried again in the summer of 1992 but my mom wouldn't let me skip my high school graduation ceremony to go see them.  My older brothers got to go but they had to hang around long enough to see me walk across the stage.  My favorite album is Grace Under Pressure even though I'm not a fan of the synth stage.

Thanks and I love the Isaac Asimov quote. I've seen this clip on YouTube but I guess I didn't let it play long enough

They toured like 12 more times after that.

Welcome to the forum, may the love, lite and solid gold awesomeness of Zelix be upon you.

I had to have the name explained to me since I don't follow Football.  By then the name had stuck.  I mostly call him 'meathead' now due to binge watching Orphan black once with the wife and then again with the daughter.
