tongue.gif  653.gif  1287.gif Is the little boy in the Distant Early Warning video Geddy Lee's son, Julian?  I never heard of this until I stumbled across a website that claimed this as fact.  I have googled and found other sites that say no, so please could one of you Rush gurus enlighten me?

I so love Geddy.  He is sooo hot!! I have loved him since I was 13 years old.  I am so happy to have found other women who worship his hotness as well.  (Just keep in mind, he is mine - all mine!) J/K

Thanks, Jaye!  Does anyone out there know for sure?  

Don't worry, jaye, I will share...if I have to...

Let's face it, Geddy is too hot to be selfish!  I just hope his wife knows how lucky she is!

I did finally get to see a pic of Geddy's daughter, Kyla Avril.  I guess she is a big fan of Gilmore Girls and her awesome Dad watched each episode with her.  Last year, he took her to the set, met Sebastian Bach, and agreed to be extras in one of the episodes (see Link below).  How awesome is that?

  notworthy.gif Love your moniker, PanaceaFish!  I have a 14-year-old daughter named Jacqueline (Jacqui) Panacea!  She loves her middle name and the song it comes from!

C'mon, does anyone know if the darling little boy in the Distant Early Warning video was Geddy's son, Julian?

Inquiring minds (and Geddy lovers) want to know!

I know the answer.

At first, the scuttlebutt was that it was Julian in the video.  Then we heard that was just an unfounded rumour, not to be believed.  This postition lasted for several years: "No, it's not Geddy's son in the video.  How do such wild rumours get started?"  Even the Rush FAQ says it's not Julian.

But it is Julian.  How do I know?  Read the book Chemistry.  The author has a quote in which Julian himself talks about the filming of the video, climbing on the missile, and playing Neil's drumset when the cameras weren't rolling.

I'll find the quote and get back to you.  But it is Julian.  (This would also explain Geddy's reaction to the video screen when the video was played during concerts.  He seemed preoccupied with staring at the screen during that song; probably missing his little boy while he was on the road.)

The video featured Geddy's son Julian.  "I don't remember too much, except sitting on this rocket thing as if I was riding it for a really long time," Julian recalled.  "Neil let me play his drums, but I had to be REALLY careful!"

I'm usually the last person to gush over children, but Julian was a cute kid, IMO.

He was a little cutie!

Now, I've heard that the woman on the cover of Permanent Waves is Geddy's wife, Nancy. It kinda looks like her.
Anyone know? huh.gif confused13.gif

I never heard that one before.  The answer is no.  The woman on the cover is not Nancy Young.  

The cover girl was a then-unknown model named Paula Turnbull, supplied by the agency Ou la la.

The man in the background is actually Hugh Syme.

I know, and we needed that.  All "facts" are actually soft until you've personally added your verification to them.  Thanks for that service.  You know, other people are capable of accurately answering questions, too.  Just sayin'.

Well while we're asking family questions, does anyone have a screen cap of Julian and does anyone have a picture of Ged's wife.  I've never seen a picture of her.
