I Forgot One Funny Thing

When I wrote a little bit about Neil Peart on stage yesterday I forgot the funniest moment. I can’t remember when or where this was, and I’m a little afraid it might actually be from one of their concert films but I don’t think it was…

Alex Lifeson was soloing at the end of a song and he just plain screwed up. It happens to all of us now and then, even to the greatest musicians on earth, it’s just much less often for them. As the song ended, but just before the lights dropped, I clearly saw Neil lean towards Alex and say something. I could read his lips perfectly. “You suck,” he said. Alex started laughing and the lights went dark and that was it.

Even the holy trinity trash talked on stage. Awesome.
