Rush’s OTHER drummer - no, not that guy, the OTHER guy

“Rush needed to reset. That finally happened with the imminent departure of Rutsey, who proceeded to miss a string of dates in 1974. "We knew early on that John had problems with his health," guitarist Alex Lifeson told Louder Sound in 2016. "He had diabetes, and he was very concerned about whether it would be manageable for him on the road. We used another drummer, Jerry Fielding, and then John came back for a month of club shows. But that was it for John. We had to fire him."
That’s a bootleg I’d like to hear.
Who the f**k is Jerry Fielding???

Here's an article that uses the same quote but in addition to that I learned that they auditioned 5 guys in total to replace Rutsey. 3 before Neil and 1 after. from Popoff 's Max Webster book, we know that Paul Kersey was one of the drummers, maybe Fielding was another. I remember reading that the auditions were taped - would love to hear a bit of that included in a box set.

True RUSH fans know to say it "Jeddie", "Nile", and "Alesh".

On a serious note I had no idea about any third dude on the stool in Rush, very interesting!
