By the way, I sat next to two friends of Alex's son at a TFE concert. They introduced me to him (Justin?). He grudgingly shook my hand, and I later overheard him scolding his friends for arranging the introduction. Nice guy. ;)

Alex must have been very cool to meet in person.
Oops, I meant that I met one of Alex's sons (not Alex) at a concert. It was a quick handshake and hello. I don't blame him, but he was clearly annoyed with his friends for introducing him to me.
If it wasn't for meeting Peart, meeting Justin Lifeson would truly be the thrill of a lifetime!

Aw, heck. I'm not being clear. Let me try again. Alex and I met in 1998 at a book signing at the Borders in Times Square when he asked me to autograph three of my books on behavioral psychology: When Humor Isn't, Failed Irony, and Bedtime for Rick.

I suggest sitting near two of his friends somewhere and striking up conversation. Within minutes, a confused Justin will appear.

Wait, so you wrote 3 books and Alex showed up at the promotional tour?

Precisely, but in a far more accurate and literal sense, no.
