Happy 66th birthday to Geddy, and happy 45th anniversary to the new guy!  Neil joined the band 45 years ago today, in 1974.  The guys bought equipment for their first tour the next day and they were off!  (I wish that I could live it all again!).

66, wow, I really can’t believe that...I mean I knew when they got into their 60s, that they’re in their 60s, of course...but I guess they’re all just frozen in time for me around the R40 tour. Yet time, as always, marches on.

And 45 years since the new guy joined the band, hahaha! Neil, who was my brother’s inspiration to start playing the drums (and, in turn, he was then MY inspiration to start playing the drums)...how fortuitous for all of us (and for them) that they found each other!

Happy birthday, Geddy!

That's a great story about your inspirations!
