  1. Great read Rod. Thanks!
  2. They were freaking awesome! If I could figure out how to post pics / video, I would.
  3. If you are in Toronto, there is a Rush tribute band playing at the El Mocambo on Friday night. They are really good! We have a father / son guitar combo in our band and Eric the son is playing guitar at this show. He is extremely talented and nails Alex's parts. The drummer is Kim Mitchell's regular drummer.
  4. Can't wait to read the interview Rod!
  5. I really enjoyed Genesis on this last tour. I thought it was a great show and Phil and the band seemed like they were having a great time. And the fans appreciated it, so who's to say it is wrong? As far as money, I believe Phil has some big divorce settlements, so he may not have as much left as we think.
  6. Music is so important to me. I knew I wanted to be a drummer when I was 5 years old and hitting pots and pans with sticks from the back yard. I was in several bands through my early 20's but my parents brought me up right and the couple of chances to give it a shot, I stayed in school. I stopped playing for 20 years, had a couple of kids and then the urge hit again. Put an ad in the local newsletter looking for aging rock stars. We eventually formed a pretty good band and I will never forget the first gig at a local bar, packed with friends. What a rush! A couple of different bands later still going and loving it!
  7. I wish Rock had decked him. The whole Smith family are candidates for most annoying family on the planet.
  8. Fantastic news. What a time. The Prime Minister's wife acting as groupie back stage. Keith's heroin bust and the subsequent concert for the blind in Oshawa. I saw that one but unfortunately not the ElMo show.
  9. Saw them in a little club on their first tour, with the original drummer. One of the highlights of my concert life.
  10. This one hit me hard. Great drummer and seemed like a great guy. Both him and Dave didn't seem to let R&R stardom go to their heads. Condolences to his wife and three kids.
  11. Were the guys as easy going as we think to work with? Were there ever any issues with ego or other difficulties?
  12. If they could solve the tape stretch and tangle it would be great!
  13. I saw an Eminem interview a while ago and he was sitting in front of a wall of cassette tapes. Obviously a big collector of them. Like everything else it is nostalgia and many of the things we threw out or sold at a garage sale are now "collectable". I follow some big auctions and old sealed video games, VHS tapes etc are getting huge dollars now. There is an Ebay auction I have been tempted to buy with a lot of Rush albums on cassette - most sealed. Then I consider that I have no cassette player and have enough stuff. But they are cool!
  14. Saw The Who farewell tour in 1980.
  15. Wow just saw this and it made me very sad. There is some comfort in knowing that she didn't just fade away from her on line group. One of those people that just stops posting and you wonder what happened to them. It makes me happy that that didn't happen to Lorraine. Some form of closure in the on line world we live in now. I will miss you Lorraine. I am going to play Quadrophenia in your memory.
  16. Most estimated from 100-200K. I follow these auctions all the time, including Julien's (same company that sold Neil's red Tama kit). I bet they go close to the high end estimate or beyond.
