The boy in the DEW video is NOT Julian as confirmed by Geddy himself in an interview.  I will find a link to it, give me some time

Edit: and here is the link CLICK  and if you are pressed for time, just read the comments on the RIAB right under the Rockline Interview link regarding Julian.

I originally thought the answer was no, but then what about the quote from Julian himself, reminiscing about making the video?  That can't be explained away... it clearly indicates that Julian was there, and climbed aboard the rocket.

Unless--of course--he's on the train to Bangkok........

It could be an inaccurate or a second-hand quote.

This also reminds me of a discussion long ago regarding the Boys being in an episode of Mayberry RFD, way back in the early days, as mechanics at Goober's Garage. This was refuted and laid to rest by some "aw-thor-i-tay", but does anyone remember that?

Wow! Thanks for the replies everyone!  Maybe they let Julian sit on the missle during the video shoot, but he wasn't the exact child star in the video?  I don't know.  I want to believe it was him and the quote in Chemistry seems to suggest it.

So, does anyone have pics of Julian and/or Nancy?  I would love to see them.  What an awesome husband and father Geddy must be! ((sigh)) heart.gif  heart.gif  wub.gif  wub.gif

Ged and Nancy

I think over on CP someone had pics of Julian from when he was going around with his dad for the MFH signing tour.

PassTheAmmunition, I think that Rockline interview is older than the info in Chemistry.

I would guess that the band originally denied it to protect Ged's family.  Once Julian was an adult, I guess they decided it was ok to reveal the truth.  

They also have always said it's not them playing the 3 crewmen on the plane, but I think it is and I think it's Ged who picks Julian up and sets him on the bomb.  I'll post a screen cap in a bit to show why I think that.  smile.gif

Well, the Rockline Interview is from May 9, 2007.  And the publish date for the 'Chemistry' publication is January 15, 2006

I don't know.  I saw and posted that picture last year and I thought it was probably Nancy because it doesn't look like a "with a fan" sort of picture, and someone posted that it isn't her.  I don't know for sure whether it is or isn't, but somewhere in the Ged thread there's a picture of Geddy, Nancy and baby Julian from 1980 or so, and it doesn't look like the same woman.

It's obviously taken at a venue somewhere, because I see badges (you can see Geddy's lanyard).  The unidentified woman doesn't have a badge or a sticker from a meet & greet that we can see. . .
Just a guess, but I'm thinking that Nancy would've been given one of the laminated badges for backstage access.

Yeah, I happen to have that pic in the Visions book, and I agree, it doesn't look like the same women to me either..

The scoop I heard on the first pic I posted was that that is Ged and Nancy at a charity wine-tasting event, but that could be wrong.  

On the other hand, the pics were taken like 25 years or so apart.  A person's looks can change a lot in that amount of time.

Discuss amongst yourselves, I bow out.

OK, I stand corrected.  smile.gif  Just odd, though, because the guy who wrote Chemistry claims to have directly interviewed the people close to the band who are quoted in the book.  Seems weird that Julian would make up a story to tell this guy.    confused13.gif

oh, here's why I think the band is in the DEW video.  First of all, this just looks like Neil to me.

user posted image

Second of all, look closely at the face of the guy on the viewer's right.  Especially compared to the guy on the left, he seems to have a rather prominent probosis doesn't he?  Like a certain bass player? confused13.gif

user posted image

I think it's the boys, in "stage formation", Alex on the left, Neil in the middle and toward the back, and Ged on the right.

Or I could be totally full of it.

They'll never tell us! laugh.gif  I think the guys like to mess with the fans' minds from time to time.  Rush humor - just as the won't tell why every concert for 25+ tours started with the 3 Stooges theme music.

I understood that it was NOT Nancy.  I realize peeps change over the years but look at the early photo with the baby and look at the current photo.  The nose especially looks different.  Nancy also has red hair.  Now women die their hair but look at the color of the roots in the pic with the blonde.  They are dark...not red.
