Peart should’ve been doing book signings too but it’s just not in him to meet people like that. If I were him I’d go out of my comfort zone and do a limited book signing fandango. Fans would shit themselves then kill each other for those limited tickets.
Peart is really good at hide and seek. Well he's good at hiding but he doesn't bother seeking...

You know he sought enlightenment in China's mountains, giving us the gift of Tai Shan . . . .   :banghead:

There was an article I remember years ago that nobody here has ever mentioned (other than me). In it, Peart says that he could find satisfaction in just being a non-touring recording artist. He stated that the creation of a project would be enough. I guess his ideas have changed over time.

Maybe he should have been a session musician. He'd probably find a way to bitch about that though. Oh I hate these drum clinics, my 43 fans keep mobbing me asking me for tips and free shit.

I never used photobucket fortunately. I used that other one which has disappeared now, or I've not used it anyway. Nowadays it's IMGUR or Tiny. There's another one too.

Peart needs a scheme to win back the public interest from Geddy. Maybe he should do a busking book tour, drumming and signing at the same time?

Was hoping for a Washington DC date (I know I wouldn't get one in Richmond where I live).  But I have to be in Nashville next week for work.  So, I got a ticket for Sunday in Nashville.  Flight lands two hours before 'gates'.  Will have my fingers crossed for no flight delays.

Basically the same...”new dates added to the second leg of the BOOK tour”. :P
But yeah of course, signing a book vs playing a 2.5-3 hour set. It’s best not to think along these lines

97 dollars??? Is he going to play Entre Nous and The Analog Kid?  I want some deep cuts for that kind of scratch.

Yeah, I swear that it was $85.00 for signings earlier in the summer! I guess 12 bucks is 12 bucks . . . :lol:
That’s right—retail book price plus sales tax.

As opposed to retail book price sales tax and hiring Event Brite to do your ticketing for you so it's really almost $106. (At least for Philly)

This might sell out before I decide if I'm up for round two.

Already thanked him (not that he remembers) and the only positive I can see is the experience of waiting in line with other Rush fans before I get  another 10 seconds with Geddy.
