It would be great if Rush would play a USO charity gig for the Troops...

Hey, there are CANADIANS fighting alongside us too...

Just a thought, but I would think there's a "Ghost of a Chance" it could
happen. Smile

What do you think? Let your opinion be known; be it for, against or indifferent!

Personally, I think it would be HUGE, and a wonderful gesture for all
fans of Rush that are currently serving their respective countries.

DO THIS GUYS.... Cool

I don't think they would do it. I'm not smart enough to know what the reasoning would be. I just have a feeling they would not. SARS, Tsunami, Battered Women, cancer and AIDS research, yes, but I just have a gut that says they would stop short of a concert for the troops...any troops...even if they gathered them in Toronto.

Don't hate me. Hate my gut. I do Just my uninformed opinion.

But seriously, does anyone understand why I/we might think that?

I'm going to say no they would not play a show for a USO thinger.


I still love them though. Freewill and all.

No hatin' here, it's all about the discussion...I think I may have opened
a can of worms...

IMHO that's a little self-centered of them, but they're rich and I'm not.

I can assume (by the negativity to the proposition) that they have no relatives or family serving, therefore no reason to give back.

on the other hand, she had warts.

Heheh, while I feel for ya, bro, I can't be limited to Imageshack. Have you tried finding a witty pic to post from there? It's like a ghost town. I still check, but have to come back to ol' reliable.

BTW, it's the younger version of the Spice Girls.

I think it has more to do with their own personal moral code, whatever that may be. And would probably not change that even if their offspring were serving.

Yes, but that doesn't make him obligated in any way to do this.

I doubt the Canadian military could save them from terrorists in their own yards, and they would still prolly not do that kind of a show. Support or not.

My 2 chunks o copper bro.
