    I think I'll be doing the same. I took it out of the library many years ago, read 79 pages, and got too busy to finish it. But now that I'm in the midst of a Rush/Neil obsession, I think I'll read that and maybe the rest of his nonfiction if the mood strikes me. I read Clockwork Angels last week, nice to finally know what that album was about.

    Just finished hearing the J.R. Flood demos. I dig it. I like old, jammy, organ rock. That Hammond is the star of the album.

    A few weeks before Neil passed I bought a ticket to see a double bill of a Yes tribute band and a Rush tribute band at the end of February. I’m thinking that might be a little awkward. I have an idea when the crowd cheers for them they’ll cheer loudest for the drummer, which I wouldn’t be very comfortable with.

    (This actually will be the second time I’ve seen a double bill of Yes and Rush tribute acts!

    Where is that Yes/Rush giig? I'm on (not in) Long Island and might go if not to far.

    Also, based upon the end on American Democracy under the Constitution on 01/31/2020, my wife and I thought about getting the F out of the Disunited States of Republica and move to Toronto; of course right after NP passed away.

    I grew up in Rochester, NY....I should've went west over the border when I had the chance. The problem is that I would've ended up in Lake Michigan and I don't have a boat.

    Tarrytown, so probably not too convenient. BÖC is playing there this month too.

    I saw Sons Of Apollo last night and they did a very cool Neil tribute. During their song "Wither To Black" vocalist Jeff Scott Soto went of stage and came back out with a white t-shirt with a big Rush logo on it. They then broke into "Tom Sawyer". It was very cool. Later in the show they dedicated another song to Neal Peart and Kobe Bryant.

    It's a thread about Neil death. You expect a debate???
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    Neil is a unique drummer - unlike anything else out there. He is also a great lyricist. Drumming aside, it is his insight and deep thought that I will miss more than him "hitting things with sticks". Love the Sticks, but will miss the books, the lyrics.

    Thanks. Tarrytown is an easy trek. Might just check it out.

    Classy. But he couldn't pronounce his name right?
    He did not know that the sword he'd hold, would turn his priceless empire into fool's gold...

    It isn't obvious. The Japanese will say grass is blue - sort of.

    Cool. But it's Neil, not Neal. And it's pronounced "Nee-yuhll-eh".

    A little nitpick about the article that was in. Dude spelled it La Villa Strongiato. I want to kick the guy in the ding ding.
    Blame the editor.

    No, the dude writing it should have caught that. The editor probably doesn't know diddly squat about Rush. It's Vegas, man. No one knows Prog here.

    So why do they call it Kentucky Bluegrass if it's green? Innit?

    @Yodelgoat: I get it. Was listening to a boot of the Power Windows tour and balling like a baby. I'm man enough to admit that his death is still reverberating with me. It really hurts that he never got to enjoy retirement with his family. Fucking gut wrenching.

    And The Garden.....damn, that's just so hard to hear these days. Knowing that was their last song it's probably one of their best tunes ever and a fitting farewell(no pun intended) to a master craftsman. It burns.

    Life ain't fair, eh?

    Looks like boots from both 1990 Philadelphia shows are available in YouTube.
