I wasn't bragging...you asked!

But I will brag now: I was in the third row of that giant amphitheater. Close enough to see the expressions on their faces.

It was awesome.

Beautiful picture of your children Schuette. Thanks for the emotion, I can see you had a brilliant time.

SCHU!!!!

You are right by the way. Lerxst DID sing I belong to Glasgow!!!!!!

I was there (as you know) and it was feckin' funny.

As some of you may or may not know............

I was at 5 of the 6 UK gigs. I also saw them at Wembley for 2 nights, then a night off then NEC Birmingham and MEN Manchester then another night off then SECC Glasgow.

They did however play at NEC Birmingham again after SECC which Ogg attended but I couldn't as I had other commitments to uphold.

It was good seeing you again Schu and meeting your daughter as well.

By the way, it was my stag night on Saturday 11th September (the day of Rush EuCon'04 and the first NEC gig!). During this day I was presented with "HEN NIGHT" accessories (strange) including a dick-head headband, a white veil and a blow-up doll!!!!!!

Here's the proof.........

And would you believe that this blow up doll actually made it down to the front of the stage that night to rapturous applause. I spoke to Howard Ungerleider (Lighting Director) who assured me that RUSH were looking after the doll and keep it taped to a chair in their dressing room.

During the rest of the UK tour they actually kept it stage left on Geddy's side.

This is a memory that will live with me forever!!!!!!
