First time in 33 years, all three Rush bandmembers are on TV
So not only was this their first live TV performance in ages... it also was the first video interview with all three members since ... I have no idea offhand - but it's been a long time. The interview questions and answers were hilarious too, and Neil was really into it. My favorite question from Stephen: Have you ever written a song so epic that by the end of the song you were actually being influenced by yourself in the beginning of the song? Jimmy asked if they could sign his host, so all three guys signed Stephen's hand. Then Neil quips I better not see that on eBay. Good stuff. Then they played Tom Sawyer. It was very strange seeing them play on a TV stage, but I think they pulled it off well. They didn't have time to finish the whole song. After the final break they were still playing and Stephen closes out the show, puts on his nightcap, gets a blanket and pillow and feigns sleeping.
