Hey Now,

This is just an observation,so i hope i do not come across as if i am complaining.I have been a fan since 1979 and RUSH is my absolute favorite band,but over the years i have noticed there is not any backstage film or radio interviews with all three members.I was hoping the RIR (boys brazil) documentary would show all three on film interacting with each other. All we see is ged and alex/ged and neil/alex and neil ect.., we never see all three just chating.This would also apply to all the radio interviews they have done over the years. When i met them in 1984 GUP TOUR a friend and i waited many hours behind the stage near the limos,and even then it was ged and alex in one limo and neil in the other. But it looks like my wishes will be answered with the R30 CONCERT, i reed that there is an interview with all three members on it.

THANK YOU!
IF I AM WRONG, PLEASE ," NOT THE SOFT CUSHIONS"

Hey WHU,

Doesn't sound like complaining to me....Actually, you have a good point.

But you have to understand, they have been together for 20-plus years(not including Rutsey), and that's the key here...Neil will always be the odd-man-out, and if I were gigging with those guys that long, I would DEFINITELY want my "space".

I think a lot of it has to do with pastimes too...Neil's a bookworm, Ged's a baseball fan and Alex likes to fly...Something tells me there wouldn't be a whole bunch to talk about at a poker game...hahaha

Besides, in the RIR video, you will notice that Alex and Geddy are admitted best friends, and Neil really didn't address his freindship with Ged and Alex....And after what Neil's been through, I think Alex and Ged are absolutely right to let Neil have his space and deal with things at HIS pace, NOT the band's.....Hopefully, like you say, the R30 DVD will be a collective project, and I'm pretty stoked to buy it myself....

And speaking of RIR, I really dig choosing Alex's camera and watching him play La Villa Strangiato....I learned a lot from it, and I'm trying to master his technique...It's SO tasty...I've made it my personal favorite tune from Rush, even though it's an instrumental...YYZ was good too, but there's something about La Villa that just knocks me out of my chair...Can't wait to finally get it down...ROCK ON!

It has been stated that they do enjoy each other's company and get together off stage.

I do find it weird when Neil will kiddingly say "the other two guys",
but as stated by Cygnus, each have different interests and G & A will always be lifelong friends and hook up.

It would be a feat to get all three in the same room though.

It would be something to be in a room with all three!

Can you imagine? I don't think I would say much. Just observe.

My chin would be on the floor.
Course I've only been as close as row 2 and that was to Ged.

The closest I was was 7th row floor on Al's side...

And there I was moist and giddy like a 14 year old chick at a 'N Sync concert......
