I was thinking Kid Gloves for the answer to that one (inspired by an action figure owned by Geddy's son).

For the answer to your question...I'll say Feedback (I don't own that one, but I'm assuming it's bare-bones rock 'n roll)

What was the last song written during the Hold Your Fire sessions?

Writer's block sucks?

I don't think that's right (though it should be) so I'll not post a question so that someone else can answer...

A: But they heard my story further
And they wondered, and were sad

B: 'My Rocinante sailed by night
On her final flight'
To the heart of Cygnus' fearsome force
We set our course
Spiraled through that timeless space
To this immortal place

What was Lerxst's solo album called?

I would say Circumstances and Bastille Day.

On a well known Rush bootleg, Geddy told the crowd that something would end up being "a big bummer".  What was he referring to?
