I found this interesting- Photo and text are from the upcoming Rush tour book, Wandering the Face Of The Earth.

Left-to-right: Michael "Mitch" Bossi, Lindy Young, Hal Greenson, Bill Rutsey, and Ian Grandy. October 18, 2013, at the Monarch Tavern in Toronto. "These kind folks all endured interviews for our upcoming book, sharing a lot of never-before-heard stories from the earliest days of the band. This night was a lot of fun, as some of these guys hadn't seen each other in about 30 years, so it was a thrill to play some small role in helping them "reconnect." Our book benefited greatly from their generosity and their overall support of the project, and it's an honor to consider these guys friends." https://www.rushbackstage.com/product/6XAMRU112/rush-wandering-the-face-of-the-earth-the-official-touring-history

Hal Greenson was Rush's Second Roadie...who was with Rush for about a year and who was followed by Liam Birt.

Early incarnation of Rush as Hadrian, 1969- (L to R): Joe Perna, Alex Lifeson, John Rutsey, Lindy Young.
Lindy Young came on board at the request of Lifeson to play keyboards, guitars and vocals ( and Geddy ended up marrying his sister, Nancy.)Geddy  was replaced for a time by bassist and vocalist Joe Perna, and at this point the name of the band was changed to Hadrian.
