OK, the last update on what Rush type people were doing in April! (this one from the RushIsABand website also! It is an awesome place for information- thanks!) "This year's Rushfest Scotland took place in central Scotland this past weekend. Legendary Rush producer Terry Brown was the special guest speaker and a video of his appearance has been uploaded to YouTube. Terry is interviewed by Paul from The Canadian Music Scene for over an hour and talks about his early days in the music business, working with Rush, and many other subjects, and also spent some time answering fan questions. You can watch the full interview on YouTube and get a complete rundown of how the weekend went including photos and video on the RushFest Scotland Facebook Page." I posted the Youtube video below- I haven't had time to watch it yet . . . .
More from RushIsABand website about Alex's appearance at Alice Cooper's golf benefit earlier this week- (thanks RIAB-more details on their site!) "There was a Rock and Roll Vampire Bash in connection with the golf tournament Sunday evening from 4:30-10PM which included Live Entertainment on the PCS Stage with Alice Cooper and friends, including Alex Lifeson, Danny Seraphine (Chicago), Tommy Thayer (KISS), Frank Sidoris (Slash), and Neal Smith (Alice Cooper). The Arizona Republic posted a review along with some photos to their website this past Monday and gave some details regarding what songs were performed and who performed them: ... [Cooper] and Frank Sidoris took the stage, Cooper announcing "Tonight, we're a cover band" before leading the band in a spirited version of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," after which he did a brilliant parody of Mick Jagger's stage movie. Then, they brought out Seraphine and Thayer to "go back even further than 'Satisfaction,'" as Cooper put it, on a ragged but raucous rendition of Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" that definitely played to Thayer's strengths on that Gibson Les Paul as Alice and Dash shared vocal duty. Thayer was even better suited to the next song, Kiss' "Rock and Roll All Nite," on which also sang. As someone who grew up on Cooper and Kiss, I can't tell you how surreal it was to see Cooper singing "Rock and Roll All Nite." Maybe all those arguments my brother and I used to have over which of those artists was better back in grade school (I was Team Alice) could have been resolved with, "You don't have to choose." Who knew? Of course, the fact that Lifeson was also on stage playing "Rock and Roll All Nite" would probably strike more people as surreal. But Lifeson looked like he was loving every minute of it. Zelisko joined the fun for "Wild Thing," which rocked and included a jaw-dropping solo from Lifeson and Seraphine rocking more like a garage-rock fan than a veteran of Chicago. When the song was over, Cooper proudly noted, "That's what bar bands do." ..." Entire newspaper article and lots of photos at http://www.azcentral...feson/83503540/ There's also a (pretty fuzzy) Youtube video of the "band" and Alex doing "Wild Thing" below the photos! :P http://i425.photobucket.com/albums/pp338/plantfan40/635971801567723688-alice-cooper-concert-1026.jpg http://i425.photobucket.com/albums/pp338/plantfan40/635971801566631681-alice-cooper-concert-931.jpg http://i425.photobucket.com/albums/pp338/plantfan40/635971801568659694-alice-cooper-concert-366.jpg
Here is an update on an event Geddy attended in London last week, with accompanying photo- (all from RushIsABand- thank you!) "The Teenage Cancer Trust's annual fundraising event is taking place at Royal Albert Hall in London all last week and the festivities kicked off April 19th with an Evening of Comedy hosted by John Bishop. Rush's Geddy Lee is a big fan of British comedy and has a residence in London, so it's no surprise that he was at the show as seen in this tweet from the Teenage Cancer Trust's Music Manager Angie Jenkison. The Who's Roger Daltrey is the Patron of the event, which is now in its 16th year." http://i425.photobucket.com/albums/pp338/plantfan40/Screen%20Shot%202016-04-29%20at%2011.57.27%20PM.png
