hen the photo was taken before the show,I was off at a parking lot south of the stadium, giving away my second ticket for the show to RushChic, a friend from 12+ years, who shared shows and smiles and life and boards and tix and stories and hugs and beers and friends and tee shirts and more beers and knuckle bumps and tunes and urinals (don't ask) and tears (at least, during Xanadu, that "final" night, when it meant the most) and lots and lots of laughs with me over the years at and before and after a dozen Rush shows. When I found out that my brother, He Plays Bass, wouldn't fly to LA for the final gig (ever), I gave RushChic my ticket (Section C (center), Row 2, seat 1), on two conditions. She had to actually be in the seat next to me for the whole show, without exception or excuse, and she had to buy me the first beer of the night. And as you'd expect of a good Rush fan, she followed through on both points. No one other than He Plays Bass that I wanted next to me for such an emotional event. I made the right call.
And as it turned out, I would up in Neil's final photo of the fans from the drum riser, proving both that I was there (as Grey, x1yyz, and Tombstone Mountain will attest, because they got me to the LA show (and, most thankfully, got what was left of me after the show out of the Steve Harvey's Fried Chicken parking lot and safely back to my hotel)), and that Neil has better photo skills than John A, who would have gotten my besodden, orange-capped head blotted out of the final fan photo ever by high hat or lunar eclipse or raised fist or bass headstock or Neil's tubeteika or intentional deletion or explosives or Alex's butt or whatever. I'm in that photo, ten seconds before the band ended. I think that means that the weight of history is on me!

No excuse! I drove from north Georgia to Toronto, then on to Montreal to see them! Besides, seeing them at every stop still wouldn't have been enough!
