This is really odd. Rush isn't playing in any Live8's around the world. Hmmm....Even when their Canadian I would think they'd try and get into one and I'm sure they could get into one very easily. Any thoughts on this?

I believe that Geddy Lee is on vacation with his family in France right now.

It's true that they have participated in a couple of benefits lately, but that doesn't mean that they will automatically do it every time. And Live8 is only to raise "awareness." There is no help at all guaranteed for any people who might be needy. The many charities that the members of Rush quietly participate in provide direct help for individual people like sick children or abused women.

Just my thoughts...

Yeah, thats true. I was just wondering why they weren't doing anything for it. Thanks.

I have not heard anything solid, except that Geddy is out of the country right now.

It probably a case of them not being hip or trendy enough to be invited to appear.

I gotta agree with Slaine, although it woulda been sweet to see them share the stage w/ Floyd....

Floyd was SO good after not gigging all that time..Granted, they were a little rusty--and a little older (Gilmour's got that great-grand-dad look going, and Waters was downright geriatric hahaha)

Keep in mind though, Floyd STILL sells scads of copies of "Dark Side" every year since its release...Even to this day....It's the record that WILL NOT DIE...and rightly so!

I lump 2112 in that club too.....

Siggy
