Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson received the key to the city from mayor John Tory on Saturday afternoon. Their new park, the Lee Lifeson Art Park, got its first song from yours truly. I was asked by the band to come and perform ‘Subdivisions’. It was a huge honour for me to be asked to join these guys again to play this song, and this time around was so much fun. I’ve never played to so many umbrellas in my life! Everyone in the Rush camp was so personable and cool, and the Rush fans were generous and kind as always. Nice to get to meet Strombo as well, who interviewed the boys on stage, where they gave me a nice shout out for my performance. I had to jet outta there right after so I could make my brother Jeff’s wedding in Ayr, and I even had another gig later that night in Georgetown. Kookoo day, but really good for the soul all around. Big congrats to Geddy and Alex for your huge contribution to the city of Toronto! Well deserved honour. Thanks for letting me be part of it!
