And I LOVE the new meet & greet photo with Alex and Geddy - - so very cool!!!!
I saw a show on this tour and completely agree that the band is in fine form. Excellent performance and I really loved the opening film segments that kicked off both sets. As a bass worshiper, I was stoked to see Geddy mostly on the four-string and not so much on the keys.
I also just saw the Beyond the Lighted Stage DVD and thought it was great - - outside of Neil's books, I'd never gotten much insight into their personal lives & history... Well worth watching, if even only to review their oh-so-fashionable hair styles. . .

I recently saw a program on the Palladium Hi-Def channel called "Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage" on the history of Rush told by Alex, Geddy and "the new guy" Neil (now I finally get that joke ) I cannot recommend it enough, they visit with the parents, go to the first place they played, show (and laugh at) high school pictures, and on - it is a very thorough documentary that will hold you to the last second. Next showing is this Saturday at noon.

Rush helped keep me from going insane during my teenage years in the '70's(!) and to find out that Neil is a die-hard biker is a such a good surprise but I had always hoped for the best.
I saw Rush in the UK twice and still follow them to this day but because of this article, I''l be investing in some of Neil's books and a lot more surfing of Neil's and the Guy's websites.
One of the reasons I followed this topic through (and I never realised 'Moving Pictures' was Rush's best selling album so far either) is Red Barchetta. I've been stunned that ever since the album came out, I've had the WRONG impression of the ending of the song/story. Its all because I thought the crital line was "At the one lane bridge I leave the GIANT stranded...) - I took this to mean the 'hero' left the Red Barchetta at the bridge as it couldnt negotiate it and the bitter sweet ending was that he escaped but had to leave the cherished car behind.
I was over joyed to find out how wrong I was - silly I know - I should read better!
I'll keep an eye on this thread for more great photo's too. I'm afraid I cant make too many helpful BMW replies - I did have a 60/7 and an R100Rs in the very distant past, I toured France on the Rs and still regard it as a great design - I have a feeling I might make it onto a GS one day but have too many bikes on my shopping list to ride yet
Thanks again Gents - What a ride !
Regards - Frank
