"A Nice Morning Drive" which inspired the song "Red Barchetta", has recently posted an VERY interesting story on a Metro Washington BMW messageboard. In it he tells of first learning of the Rush connection in 1996, becoming a fan, finally contacting Peart in 2006, and finally meeting him while riding with him during the east coast leg of the S&A tour! Check it out here, amazing pictures included of the ride, as well as images of the original story as it appeared in Road & Track.
Rush fans are everywhere! Yesterday saw the debut of G4TV's "Code Monkeys", a new animated show done in the blocky style of old 8-bit computer games. As seen during the opening credits, a Rush poster can be seen hanging on the wall in Dave and Jerry's office (click here to see the original poster). Code Monkeys airs Wednesdays at 9PM ET on GVTV.
