    Heh heh - drummers and bass players.

    Lemme see, that was the one nice thing about doing big shows - roadies.

    I'm like 60 now, too old to jump around on stage.

    I like this one though, note the kick, at the end of the gig you just fold up the legs and you're done.

    (The suitcase says Rogers on it, not sure that it is though).

    60 is another number .. you don't have to jump around .. just play
    Is it possible that swinging a wrecking ball against “the West” .. in pursuit of a world populated with virtual zombies instead of real human beings .. was not such a good idea after all?

    If Mick can still jump around @ 70 something, so can you

    Pert doing Buddy Rich with big band in 1994. Starts about halfway into the video. AWESOME.

    Forget the "27 Club", 67 is a relatively young age for a rock musician to die, especially someone of exceptional talent as Neil. I do own several Rush albums, but I've never listened to them that much over the years. Once I can upgrade some of my worn-out stereo equipment, I should give 'em another listen. I've always thought Rush's lyrics were a refreshing break from the macho, sleazy posturing that dominated other bands of that time. They focused on science fiction, societal matters and the human condition. They must have been a fave among intellectuals.

    You might just be correct.
    The tiger and the lion may be more powerful, but the wolf does not perform in the circus.
