I was lucky enough to win backstage meet & greet passes to this concert. I got to meet Geddy and Alex, shake hands and say hi and get a photo shot. So cool... A dream come true.

The Clockwork Angels tour 2012 rolls on. I'm so torn. While I'm sorely disappointed that the boys do not appear to be coming to South Florida on this tour, I love to keep reading about how awesome the tour appears to be going. Rush returned to St Louis for an awesome show.
Leave it to Rush, the thinking man’s rock band, to put together an evening of interesting yet powerfully progressive music last night in Nationwide Arena. The fans that filled the floor, much of the lower section and part of a papered-over upper level heard and saw three hours of impressive music.
Singer Geddy Lee has said in interviews that with 20 albums to its name and more than four decades as a performing band, it’s getting harder to pick songs for the Canadian power trio’s tours. The “Clockwork Angels” tour was terrific, though, mixing in the old and the new.

On Wednesday Full CBC Interview With Rush's Geddy Lee Goes Online was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) Video of Rush bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee's full interview with CBC Canada's Peter Mansbridge from earlier this year has now surfaced.
"What does Rush mean to me? That's a really good question," says the bassist. "To me, it's this little group of experimenters; we're these three guys that wanna see what we can do together. That's the simplest way I can put it."
"A funny thing happened after we were together for about twenty years," Geddy continued. "Where most bands start to break up, we were kind of becoming intrigued with staying together, cause so few stay together. We wanted to see what the fruits of a long term, good relationship could do. Here's a band - 38 years on - and we are pushing it…we're trying to see where we can go as a band. Can we achieve new things, can we make our music this ideal that we have in our head." - Watch the video here.
