    ...to watch more of Rush in Rio.

    Watching Neil Peart play drums makes me wish I could, too.

    The guy is tireless, intense, incredibly skilled...he's a fucking rock back there.

    For 2+ hours...

    I saw Rush when they played The Apollo, Glasgow.

    My memories of the event are .... hazy.

    I may have posted this before.

    I saw (ha) them in Detroit way back in another lifetime, under similar circumstances...late-'70s, I think.

    Don't remember a thing after By-Tor...

    I'll save "Rio..." for later; Mrs. j2 has come home-she doesn't like loud music played loudly.

    He is a beast. I have played for 16 years and I am still amazed at
    his skill, and I'm not to shabby myself.

    @JPaul- There is an Apollo Glasgow?

    Peace bd

    That's the term-beast.

    I wonder if he'd have developed his style in a group with more than three players?

    His riffing and filling is the equivalent of a lead on guitar.

    Add the fact that he is the most prolific lyricist of the three, and an acolyte of Ayn Rand into the bargain...

    I wasn't aware until I bought the DVD that he's had quite a bit os sadness in his life in recent years; his 22-year-old daughter was killed in an auto-accident in late '97, and then his wife died after a bout with cancer in early '98.

    He was coaxed from seclusion to tour in '02 for Vapor Trails.
