I`m pretty sure Neil writes in one of his books that Alex always visits the coffee shops whenever they are in Holland...

He did...in Roadshow, BUT...it's Geddy, not Alex.   wink.gif

I have my doubts that they have ever done anything worse than smoke a little pot here and there.  I have an interview with Geddy in a magazine somewhere where he basically says that.  I've never been into smoking pot, but I know a lot of people who do...and they are still productive members of society, good people, good parents, etc.

Theyve mentioned acid before. There's no way I can find the interview after all these years, but Im 100% certain they talked about it and did it.

to answer the question, all you have to do is look at Geddy's face on the back cover of 2112.  I think the picture says it all.

I thought it was funny when I first heard it.

And yes, obviously Rush, like nearly all other musicians of that era dabbled in drugs.

And then they matured, and have since cleaned up their act.  Can't think of a single drug any of them does anymore.

I'd say it's a fair bet that Alex smoked as recently as 2002.

  rofl3.gif  That was hilarious, I'm going to have to agree with you on this one. Alex is the man.

I swear I saw Alex shooting up behind a dumpster one night in downtown Toronto.




I dunno, maybe I was high.

They all still drink and I believe Neil still smokes.

He smokes cigs and seems like he drinks quite a bit, no way to know about weed though. Wouldnt surprise me at all though.

People are just curious. Even though they've admitted to doing drugs, Rush has this squeaky clean image because aside from Alex in all these years they really haven't gotten into any major drama or trouble, which I guess is unusual for a rock band coming out of the 70s, and probably a big part of why they are still together.

Just proof that they never let it take control or interfere with the band. I dont know how anyone could think they werent on anything listening to stuff like CoS. Didnt Geddy talk about them being on drugs during the writing of that album? I remember this in a pretty recent interview, was it mentioned in the movie?

I think at this point is silly ask if this band did drugs or that band did it....¡¡¡¡ALL the 70s bands did it!!!! No exception. Some did it to much, some just a little and some others had excellent results doin it, i assume Rush is one of those.

This is the most inane thread on the board.  To someone my age, which is close to the boys in the band is like a kid asking if there parents had sex.


Also, it is really none of your business.
