Dan and I were talking about Dream Theater and some songs they did about when a man loses a woman to illness or something. I don't know if any of them went through a blow like that. I started telling Dan about a story I heard where a singer read the Ghost Rider book and couldn't believe Neil still lived. He thought Neil would kill himself after losing Jackie and Selena. This man started to write a song about something like that. I have forgotten who this person was. I kind of remember how the tune went but not the words. Do any of you remember a song like that?

I know someone wrote a song after having read GR, and I think it was a DT member. I can ask *ite about it. He is a big DT fan.

Hopefully he will respond to my mailing before I take off to California.

Someone else here may know though, and could tell.

I also heard that the singer from Godsmack wrote "Serenity" for Neil, but I can't confirm it.

THAT is the song and band I had in mind. Sorry, RL, wasn't DT.

I talked to *ite about DT and he knows of no connection to Rush songwise. Sorry I had the wrong band in mind.

Thanks for finding the info for me. I won't get the song since I've slowed down my Neil fascination. I figured it wasn't DT because James LaBrie has a high voice and whoever this is, sings low.

Slowed down the Neil fascination? Who'd you replace it with?

Well, once you two get married, that should change. *wink*

Just for the hell of it I found the lyrics to the Godsmack song.

"Serenity"

As I sit here and slowly close my eyes
I take another deep breath
And feel the wind pass through my body
I'm the one in your soul
Reflecting inner light
Protect the ones who hold you
Cradling your inner child

I need serenity
In a place where I can hide
I need serenity
Nothing changes, days go by

Where do we go when we just don't know
And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

Tragic visions slowly stole my life
Tore away everything
Cheating me out of my time
I'm the one who loves you
No matter wrong or right
And every day I hold you
I hold you with my inner child

I need serenity
In a place where I can hide
I need serenity
Nothing changes, days go by

Where do we go when we just don't know
And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

Where do we go when we just don't know
And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

I need serenity [x2]

SERENITY NOW!!!! J/K

That's a beautiful song. Was it really written with Ghost Rider in mind?
