Going to see the elves

...Well, not exactly the elves. Valinor is too expensive a round-trip ticket.

But I am going to see some people who are almost as cool: Geddy Lee, Neil Peart, and Alex Lifeson, of the rock band Rush.

After spending barely less money than I would have had to spend on a ticket to Valinor (damned Ticketmaster), I'm all set to see Rush on June 8 at a place near Detroit called the "DTE Energy Music Theatre." Don't worry, people. You'll get over your jealousy in a few months. It's understandable. Who wouldn't want to see a band who plays songs with lyrics like:

On certain nights
When the angles are right
And the moon is a slender crescent

Its circle shows
In a ghostly glow
Of earthly luminescence
. . .

Floating high
In the evening sky
I see my faint reflection

Pale facsimile
Like what others see
When they look in my direction

. . .

Brilliant, no?


RUSH is still touring?

They're still touring. Thirty years later. Older, arthritic, a whole hell of a lot richer, and still kicking ass.
