Rush Reunion at Superstar Birthday Party/Alex Jams with Extreme

"A gathering of several big rock music names came together May 11th to celebrate the 37th Birthday of Steve Hoffman - a part of SRO Management and brother to Sunshine Jive's Robby Hoffman. Reporting in for me is none other than Robby himself! 'On hand were all members of Rush, including Neal (mispelled!) Peart. All original members of Extreme, Valentine/Open Skyz and The Tea Party. The night started out with an all-star jam - Extreme (Gary, Pat and Paul) with Alex Lifeson on guitar doing Aerosmith's Sweet Emotion. Nuno joins the stage for Get The Funk Out and than turns it into a full Extreme re-union jam of all their classics including some Zeppelin and Aerosmith favorites as well. The night heats up when Nuno gets on drums and Robby Hoffman takes over on guitar for Custard Pie and Aint Talkin Bout Love. Then Valentine/Open Skyz join the stage with some friends. If thats not enough, The Tea Party takes the stage and covers a wide variety of classics. To end the night, Extreme take the stage one more time, joined by Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) for some of the best jamming ever witnessed. The birthday was not complete until Nuno and Gary closed the night with More Than Words...'" - Melodirock.com, May 21, 2002

"U.S. Protests Mexi-Canadian Overpass"

"U.S. Protests Mexi-Canadian Overpass", detailing the building of an overpass from Mexico to Canada which bypasses the U.S. One U.S. citizen complains "the honking, the chickens, the sound of thousands of cars going back and forth to Canada and Mexico is more than I can take. I can hear those goddamn radios blaring Mariachi music and Rush all day and night." - The Onion, May 15, 2002
