Unfortunately, all the shirts that Geddy wears are made personally for him and usually not for sale. Really sorry.

:boo hiss: :boo hiss: :boo hiss:


Wait a minute!  What does "usually not for sale" mean?  Does that mean if I offer $1,000 for the shirt, they'll send me one?  :lol:
Someone will make some after the tour on Cafepress/ redbubble as they are probably not trademarked.

If you do, sell me one.

Eagle, you should have flown or driven to NYC instead of going to Ohio and Buffalo.

Oooo, just got an email from Backstage Club.

No chance. I don't like dealing with the traffic and all the mass of humanity in NYC.

No traffic in, no traffic out.  It was much easier than dealing with either Newark or Boston (especially Boston).

Like others have mentioned, it was nice to see the band smile and interact, but I didn't notice the smiles until the second set.

One more thing.

When I was watching Tulsa the second or third time, I noticed how well Geddy's t-shirts fit him.  Now I know why they fit him so well.  :lol:

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.

Geddy Lee, The Incredible Floating Man.

Realistically, it was probably 3 feet but I was damn impressed about someone at his age doing that.

By the way, "biological break" or "bio break" is now a standard phrase in the corporate world...I absolutely HATE this kind of exp<b></b>ression. Much like "it´s a win-win situation", "let´s get the low-hanging fruits", "risk-based approach" and other gems.
Let's just agree to disagree on this one.
