Did anyone get the fanzine A Show Of Fans. It ran from 1991-1997. I used to love that mag as a kid first getting into Rush.

I've heard about it and seen copies on e-bay but I have never had the chance to read one.

yes - I have Issues 1 - 4.  I JUST got into the band at that time.  I don't remember how I heard about it.

Steve Streeter was the guy behind it all.  They tried to turn it into a web site, didn't they?

Yeah, they had an Internet site. I credit them largely in getting me into Rush!

I remember!!!  Well, the website that is.  Before all these message boards and rush.com came about, I would go to asof.com for all my rush info and rumors.  I was sad when it left but happy to find other sources for information and speculations.

I remember in one of the issues that the two main editors, Steve Streeter and some girl (don't remember her name) were going to get married.

They announced their plans in a full page ad.  It was during the RTB tour in '92, and they were to be wed when the band played Ghost Of A Chance.

It was very, very weird.  Any other ASOF subscribers in the audience?  Is Steve Streeter among us???
