I don't know if any of the rest of you have come across this, but I stumbled on it by accident

Thanks for the link! Great interview. I like this part the best. I know a lot of people have questioned how the band feel about us, the fan. I think they show right here that they've got a good grasp on what we are all about and they appreciate it. 8)

"How would you like Rush to be remembered?

Lee: Gee, I don't know. A band of good players that did some wacky material. Just a band that worked hard at trying to create their own piece of music.

Lifeson: I think the way I saw it in our fans' eyes, how they remember us, and that was there before we did that [most recent] tour. I'm sure that with so many of our fans, they'll grow into their 60s and 70s being Rush fans. That's amazing.

There's something about a Rush fan that sets them apart from anybody else. It's really their dedication and their understanding. When I read the mail that Rush fans write generally and the kind of dialogue they have with other Rush fans, it's very impressive. We have a real thinking audience and really have a lot of respect for them. That's what it has always been with us. It has always been about the relationship."

They certainly know how to paw at our hearts to a higher degree of understanding. :D

Thanks,

After Alex mentioning that he saw fans crying at shows, I'm trying to remember if I was crying at the last show. I don't think I was... I think I was just excited to be there, and REALLY glad to see Neil smiling.

I'm more likely to be brought to tears at Yes shows.

That is an "abridged" version of a larger article in May 15 Billboard magazine. It's awesome. There are other really good articles and pics in it too in a "tribute" to Rush from alot of their corporate sponsors, etc. It's heartwarming to read.

Pick it up if you can!

Freeze this moment a little bit longer...
