I'm here just to add something else about Rush, especially Neil Peart.
This banner, hanging a few times along St. Paul Street, the main street in St. Catharines,
is a celebration of Neil Peart and all that he has accomplished as a home-town boy.
They have other local celebrities, but Neal is the only rocker.

I'm seeing a lot of aquatic graphics for these recordings here,
so I'm adding a photo of a painting I did.
Hey! I'm a lead guitarist so I have to be artistic.

Reformed LIAISON are back. Assuming all goes well, the 80's proggers want to introduce the band's new bass player as well as keyboardist to revisit some old material with a view to perhaps being considered for a spot at one or two festivals next year. New songs? Never say never...
