Yeah, from embarrassment.

I love Alex, I love Geddy and all the Canadian talent and everything but, if Geddy got into my outfit with seven, eight-inch platform heels and 40 pounds of additional armor, studs, bass, and stuff. Having to spit fire and fly through the air and walk around with an additional 40 pounds, my friends is going to pass out in half an hour.”

What? Lol.

 

Not sure there's any context where this isn't just a very random thing to say, lol.

And Gene would pass out from trying to play one of Geddy's bass lines.

 

Or stepping on a Taurus Pedal while singing and playing one of those bass lines at the same time.

Or definitely trying to hit the high note in Cygnus X-1 while doing both of those things!

Or co-writing music that's something beyond 3 chord rock & roll.

Fortunately, in this forum we value our musicians on their musical skills, rather than how much they can carry on their shoulders like pack mules :crazy:

Well, I dunno.... that double-neck Rickey looks pretty heavy. :)

God, he's obsessed with swinging his own dick.

I saw his pretty wife, Shannon, once at a Starbucks in LA. I kinda wanted to walk up to her and say, "You really don't have to be with him. Come be with me instead."

lol

I love that KISS and Rush have this relationship so many years onward, but really...

KISS chose to look like a theatrical act with costumes but the music was fairly simple (ouch? = but catchy, so catchy!).

Rush chose kimonos, literally the lightest material you can wear as a costume.

So yes Geddy would faint with Gene's armour, but Gene would faint trying to trigger all the sounds and hit all the right buttons as a trio that sounded like ten people rocking the stage.

 

Edit: They have similarities, interesting to me, family histories of concentration camps, both of (mixed) Jewish descent, both bassists...

But, no where near the similarities of being instrumentalists, more alike as awesome stage performers in their own ways.

No, I haven't. This was about ten years ago. She looked very, very good, even as an older woman just waiting for a latte. I'm at least fifteen years younger but she still caught my eye. I think I caught hers too -- at least that's how I remember it.

This is interesting. Maybe that's why they got along so well.

What else is a former Playboy Playmate T&A show to do but hook up with some rock star and put up with his infidelities, just so she can have "The Lifestyle".....

There was that story in the music press a few years back about how Gene had escorted Nancy Lee into his dressing room and left Geddy locked outside. You'd think they wouldn't have got along so well after that!

That's why I play onstage nude. More mobility, less sweat. My drummer doesn't like it, though.
