   Greetings.  If anyone can give me some detailed information on the comic
book series that Jimmy Shaffer (sp?) talked about, it would be very
appreciated.  I tried posting Jimmy, but I couldn't get through.
   Also, has anyone else heard that Rush has begun the writing process for
it's 14th studio album?  I heard this info on 96.5 WCMF out of Rochester,
New York.
   That's all for now...farewell.......

Hi people,

I saw Rush in concert at Alpine Valley awhile ago (3rd. row :-) and it
appeared that Alex was playing "Spirit of Radio" differently than before.

I always thought he moved from the second fret on the E to an open E,
then to the third fret on the B to the E then fourth fret on the E to open
E, and then repeated with substituting the third fret for the fourth above
and then pulled off down to the second fret and then finally to an open E.

But when I saw him, it appeared that he wasn't using an open E at all.
Does anyone know if he has changed the way he plays this, or has he always
played it that way.  I *thought* I saw him play it with an open E at an
earlier concert, but I'm not sure.  Also, it seems that using the open E
is much easier.  Any comments?

A few days ago, Michael Savett asked about a poster for the _Presto_ tour
Well, I have one, which I bought at their Indianapolis concert.
They weren't being sold at their earlier, St. Louis concert, and,
frankly, they aren't all that great (IMHO).  The poster actually says,
PRESO POSTER on it, and has some photos of the guys in action (not
that you can really see Neal behind his drums...)  All in all, I wouldn't
be too upset about not getting this thing if I were you.  Now, if ther
is another poster out there, I don't know about it.

Subject: names

Of the choices for digest names so far, I think "The National Midnight Star"
is the best.  You could put in the disclaimer section at the bottom,
"We've got Mars on the horizon!"

I think some good names for rush-mgr would be, digital-man@...
and my personal fav,         shreve@...  :)

Does anyone know if there's a UK equivalent to 'The Backstage Club'?

Thanks in advance...
