    Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson were in NYC today. I had to make an emergency run somewhere, and I just happen to meet them at one of the places they stopped.

    They don't look the same as they do in pictures or at concerts. Well, they do, they're recognizable, but they're, ummm, more life-like...

    I'd post my pic with them...But I'm not wearing a motorcycle helmet or anything...
    I don't know where Neil Peart was, if he was with them and just not there at the moment or just off somewhere else altogether. I would have offered him money to come talk with me for just 5 minutes...Not that he'd actually need the $7 I could afford to offer... But it would be mind blowing to talk a little philosophy and life with him. My meager mind would probably just babble incoherently, but whatever...

    So I broke my hiatus for that. I've met a lot of musicians/celebrities from when I was an actual radio guy (Shania Twain also looks little like her image), but these guys were the only ones I was ever like "No way! Rush???? I wanna meet them!"

    :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha:

    I'm lucky I managed to stick my head in the frame of a picture with them! I was telling my wife, this is like the 3rd time in 2 weeks I regretted not carrying my camera anymore. I also thought it would have been cool to have my stack of Rush CD's signed, but they seemed in a hurry. Plus, I know myself, I'd end up ebaying them in a week anyway... :haha: :haha:


    I think the most songs from one group in my MP3 collection is are Rush. Them and Waylon :bow: :bow: .

    Friggin a... I think I deleted the PM with your address... :rotfl:

    I barely had a chance to hear him speak, but it sounds like his voice is deeper talking than singing. That man can shatter glass... :haha:
