Well, I found one or two places online that have a few Rush stories, but not much I'm interested in...
Personally I don't think its any creepier than the average fan having fantasies, sexual or otherwise, or knowing or interacting with a favorite celebrity, and I'm sure that happens all the time.
I have been a fan for going on 40 years now and am a dude so for me the sexual thing is out (not that there is anything wrong with that) but I have also never really thought about meeting them or dreamed of it. I am Neil's perfect fan as I am really not starstruck and really have never been about musicians, athletes etc. I just enjoy what Rush does, well at least most of it anyway ( after 85' not so much)...
Personally I think daydreaming about celebrities and what they might do in their off time is more of a girl thing to do
I am a girl but I'm not into the whole celebrity thing. I do appreciate what individuals do and I acknowledge being a fan of various musicians, performers, scientists, activists, etc. But my fandom pretty much ends there. From what I know of the guys in Rush they seem like people I would get along with and would have fun hanging out with, and for that reason I would love to meet them--but only in the right circumstances, like we would all go for dinner at a mutual friend's house. I would never do something like stalk them around town, and honestly, I get a little creeped out by some of the people on this board who aspire to similar things. But then again, I'm an introvert like Neil and just want other people to leave me alone.
And I think I agree about the 'after 85' thing. I accept that they needed to explore, but I feel they wandered away from their foundations when they did so, but didn't they come back to it a bit after they ditched the heavy synth stuff?
I think so. I'm another long time fan who first heard and loved Rush in 1980, but fell out of love with them in the latter half of the 80s. Then, IMO the band came back with a vengeance and Vapor Trails is in my top Rush albums, and Clockworks Angels is not only in my top three, but I also think it's the best thing they've done since 1980 or 81.

Ok so I started to new thread for this comment.... So if you wanna add to it, please find the other one....
(((That all being said, I gotta say to you all...
Isn't it amazing that these three guys, out of all the humans in the world, were able to come together and do what they were born to do? Not just that, but with perfect compliment to each other's individual brand of musical genius??
Like they were always three parts of a whole that just needed to find each other?
Personally I am sort of blown away by that...)))
It really is amazing. They fit so well together and they are great people without so much of the negative stuff that often surrounds other rock stars. I think that's why they are so special.
