Nice read James.

As a member of the Rush Fan petit-bourgeosie I tug my forelock to your commanding modesty.

Great read Slim, particularly the "RUSH fan royalty" bit  :).

Mrs Bez just asked what I was laughing at, bearing in mind that she's downstairs and I'm upstairs with music playing gives an indication of the level of laughter.... ;D

Sorry to go off track, but has the Sweden festival thing happened yet? If so, how did they do?

Great read perhaps you could send a link to Peart in order to let him see what makes an interesting blog...

Seemed to go pretty well from what I read.  They played a shorter set with no intermission.

Good read, was Chris the guy you bought the ticket from, the young guy in the Superman t shirt who was planning on donning a Yeti costume during the gig?

Hm - I don't remember a Superman t shirt but may have forgotten that detail. He didn't mention a Yeti costume. But when I told him that I'd seen them in '77 he did ask if they'd performed Garden Road, which did amuse me for some reason.

OK, it's just that I picked up two tix from a Chris at Nando's before the gig for friends.... and they were standing next to you! ;)

That would indeed have been the Chris in question, then.

Thanks for all the kind comments BTW :)

Nice read James - can't believe I didn't bump into you at Sheffield as you weren't that far away from me by the look of it - maybe it wasn't my turn to meet Rush Royality again  ;)

This time i did fewer gigs but got lucky, Front Row Brum, meet and greet (gave Geddy a cricket ball for his baseball collection, he said he would "have to learn to throw a googly", in gig photo. Went to the Dam and had a blast, a delyed flight home meant Flybe paid me £200 compensation for a £60 return ticket. Met many familiar faces on here again. Happy Days.
