Something biographical made a great 20 minute read on the train today :=>

Especially this bit :

"Neil was playing drums in 1974 for what turned out to be the last incarnation of Hush (a popular Niagara band with me and Paul Luciani on bass guitar and Gary Luciani on vocals) when the phone call came: would Neil be interested in auditioning for Rush, whose drummer had just quit? (As I recall, someone connected with the band was from St, Catharines and remembered Neil from his J. R. Flood days.)

Neil actually had to think it over. He was working full time at his Dad's business, and had recently returned disappointed after trying to "make it" as a drummer in England. At the time, Hush members saw Rush as merely a Led Zepplin clone band - 'You're making a big mistake, Neil,' one of us sagely opined at a band meeting."

Rush - a Led Zeppelin clone band :lol: :lol: :lol:
