in a few interviews dating back to the MP era I've heard Geddy mention meeting one of his "hero's" and it turned out bad because this hero turned out to be a drunk asshole. but he never mentions who this hero is!

maybe some insider on the board has an idea.. or we could just speculate.. as we do lol
anybody have any ideas?

I remember some of those interviews. It could be practically anyone really. But I think Lost in Xanadu's guess of Lindsey Lohan is a very strong possibility

Charlie Sheen! Winning answer. I mean, Kings X wrote a song about him. It seems so obvious now. Mystery solved.

They actually didn't. :( I know it's not really a common name, but Ty Tabor said the song wasn't in any way related to the actor.

This is who I would guess since he was a big fan of The Who.

He should've listened to Neil and not met anyone from the Who.  Of course, Neil did meet them, but, whatevs.

They met Pete recently, and it sounded like a good experience.

Geddy mentions him often as an idol.  Maybe Jack Casady?  Both are pretty good guesses, I think.
