During One Little Victory last night, I can recall Geddy jumping at least 4-6 feet in the air. For a 61 year old man, THAT is impressive. For that one moment, he could have played for the Chicago Bulls.
I laughed out loud when I read this. If you meant this seriously, I apologize as I mean no offense. If it was intended as an excursion into absurdist humor I commend you on your comedic wit. Reminds me of that old Monty Python sketch where the guy attempted to leap across the British Channel, lol.
You are joking, yes?
At LEAST 6 feet in the air? That's over his body height! Not even when he was 23 could he manage that feat. It might've seemed that way at the time but there is no way he leaped anywhere near that high. You might as well claim that at one point he flew around the arena on his bass like a witch on a broom stick.
Maybe he could manage 3 feet on a good night in his twenties, assuming he was wearing jumping shoes.
But then again he does appear to float high in the air in the Time Stand Still video, so maybe that wasn't special effects after all.
