    Has this story been posted before? Being an ex-avid moto rider, BMW owner etc it was all the more entertaining but it's great all the way around and another example of what RUSH rules! Neal Peart is a living god! Oh and check out Alex's Barbie Fan Club while they're on stage too, pretty funny. Enjoy!

    Dang! You got to do that for your master's thesis!? What school did you go to anyway? My thesis was titled "A Demonstration of Conjoint Analysis in Organizational Research." Ugh!

    Very cool, I'll have to go back and read the entire story when I have time. Thanks for the link!

    PS - I too am busy playing guitar, which is why I learned theory.

    Being able to ride from show to show would be so cool. That was a really great story to read.

    The LLAMA!!!! Hell yeah, now there's a reference for you. Ya Ya!

    I didn't get to do my Master's Thesis on this, it was more of a 'joke' than anything. But you COULD have, man, I've always loved Rush and my admiration only grows with time. I've got Neil's first book on reserve at the library, I look forward to checking it out.

    That's the nicest story I have read in a long time. I play Guitar & Drums. Rush was a very important band to me (still is). Neil's tragedy was beyond comprehension, but he found himself in the saddle of a BMW traveling the world. He met & married a photographer & lives in California now. Also, the support he got from Geddy & Alex is amazing. They took as much time off as Neil needed, they stood by him. I have read all his books. I couldn't put them down, they are that compelling. It's amazing that your story was the impetus for what is one of the best Rock songs ever, you should be very proud.
