Blue-Jays' Catcher is a Rush Fan

"Jays catcher Gregg Zaun makes no secret of his music interests or the fact that he is a huge fan of the band Rush. So at a recent Toronto game against the Oakland Athletics at the Rogers Centre, Zaun was sufficiently psyched when he learned that Rush bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee was in attendance. Zaun, whose first plate appearance each home game is accompanied by the Rush tune Limelight, asked the stadium audio crew to play Limelight for all of his plate appearances that night as a tribute to Lee. 'I was watching him as I walked to the plate to see if he noticed but he was talking to someone the first time up,' Zaun said. 'The second time, though, he stood up and applauded. That was so cool.' It got even cooler when Zaun took Athletics pitcher Kirk Saarloos deep for a home run and pointed directly at Lee as he crossed the plate. Lee pointed right back, which made Zaun's day. - Toronto Sun. - May 22, 2006

Alex Lifeson on Kastner's "Have You Seen Lucky"

Alex Lifeson appears on John Kastner's Have You Seen Lucky, released May 11th. In 2003, Lifeson remixed the "Facination Unknown" single for John Kastner's current band, All Systems Go!, and later performed live with Kastner and Blue Rodeo's Jim Cuddy at the White Ribbon benefit concert in June 2005.
"A cross between everything I've done over the past 20 years. Alex from Rush plays guitar on it and Lee Ving from Fear sings on it – so it’s really all over the place. That’s my crazy 70's upbringing in a nutshell". - John Kastner, Skiddle.com, May 18, 2006
