Rush has been around for 40 years, and apparently their R40 tour may be their last tour.  Who are they kidding??  This Canadian trio – Geddy Lee / Alex Lifeson / Neil Peart – are in their early 60s, and yet they are kicking it as if they were in their 20s.  There might not be a tighter trio going on earth, well, besides me, my mouth and Popeyes Fried Chicken

Seeing them, FINALLY, was part obligation (I’ve been in love ever since I got my hands on the double CD set Chronicles via BMG Music Service), and partly cause I like me some kick ass rock, and the fellas did not disappoint – playing a career spanning show, in reverse chronological order.  Even the stage decorations got less and less extravagant as the night wore on – going from glitz (a popcorn maker and some washing machines!?) to back to basics (just a few amps) by the time the show ended, some 3 hours later(!!!)!

And what did I take away from this show? The sight of double guitars!! and double bass guitars!!  And Neil Peart’s dumb skully,  and how Alex Lifeson looks exactly like David Warner (sorta not really!).  And things, and stuff!!
