I've been tidying up the anonymous ftp and put most of the stuff in incoming
into the proper directories. There are several new guitar tabs, interviews,
and gifs, and all of the CONTENTS files have been updated, so check them out!
I also have news of the t-shirts from Cheryl Crenshaw... check the last post
in the digest for that information.

Subject: Freewill and Syrinx lyrics

According to Core Music's _Rush Complete_,

the line in "Temples" is
"It's one for all, and all for one/
We work together, common sons".

and in "Freewill"

"If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice."

Just confirming that for yinz ...


"Everybody's got to deviate from the norm"

*gasp weeeze cough*

saved in my dying more day without the NMS and
I certainly would have died...especially after having to resort to

seriously though...THANK YOU VERY MUCH Meg for reviving us!!

Geeez....I saw 3 RTB shows since the last NMS. It was great to meet
some fellow NMSers at the shows!! I saw the last two shows
(Alpine Valley and Chicago), and they were the best out of the 5 shows
I saw on the tour!!! A lot of you might know this already, but for those
who don't, Neil shaved his head for the last show!! He whipped off his
bandana right at the end to reveal a MOHAWK!!! I couldn't believe it!!

I want to say hi to the NMSers I met and saw the sdhows with!!

St Louis: Hi Dave (tvos), Tony, Lewis (Drama), and Mike (Rocinante)!!
Alpine Valley and Chicago: Hi Patster!!! (Ask Patster bout the loot
he got from the Chicago show!)

Again, applause to the "temp. Rush mgr" for her efforts!!! :-)

Subject: The Rush Tour List

The updated Rush tour list (if you haven't already seen it posted to is on in the special directory. I've already
gotten several additions to the list, and I'll add them in in the near

Also, could anyone recommend some radio stations that play Rush? I need the
radio station and the address, and just about any city will do (I need it for
a project I'm working on) but here are some cities I would like to know

Phoenix, San Francisco, Boston, Atlanta, St. Louis, Las Vegas, Dallas

I'd really appreciate any help! Thanks!

Subject: Changes in Set (back in June)

Now that the NMS is back, I wanted to make a comment that I had
saved-up since seeing the Dayton show (back in June, I think).

They changed the set a bit towards the end of the show.  Subdivisions
was NOT played (and possibly another song they played the first time
around) and they substituted "Analog Kid and Vital Signs".  Again my
memory has worn....I believe there was a third surprise (can anyone
help me out?).

It took me a second or two to figure out that they were playing Analog
Kid as I was totally surprised by it.

Since NMS has not been around for awhile, I don't know if anyone mentioned
this change before.  Did they do this at other shows?

To the person who was having problems getting tickets at Alpine Valley:

About a year and a half ago, I waited in line at a Ticketsmaster outlet
in the Milwaukee area for REM tickets.  We were one of the first
ones in line, and we ended up getting rather bad tickets, also.  We
were about two rows from the top in the reserved section, but
right in the middle.

Well, I found out a day or two later that for all the Alpine Valley
concerts, tickets go on sale an hour earlier at the the Riverside Theater
Box Office, and at the Alpine Valley Box Office.  I don't know if this
is the case for all concerts at Alpine Valley, or if this policy has
changed since Alpine Valley was sold, but next time you wait out,
I'd give a call around and see if they do go on sale earlier at those
two locations.

Fellow NMSers... we have been found out by the object of our affection!
Low and behold on a well deserved secretive trip to the castles of Scotland,
my wife and myself were thrust into mayham as we were asked to step aside to
allow a VIP tour to proceed...yes, yes, Geddy Lee (can't miss that nose) was
amongst the elite group of spoiled rich inheritors (thanks for the money
daddies). Trying to stay composed and mature we impatiently hung out around the
VIP entrance until that fatefull moment he emerged, touring solo.
We introduced ourselves as diehard fans and a member of a worldwide email
newsgroup (TNMS)--he was unaware of the NMS and wanted to know more!
He shook our hands, granted us a picture with him, an autograph and expressed
interest in what brought fellow Canadians to Scotland. Important info gathered
from the source--new album due next year (may have some mid evil influence),
not considering touring Canada for the unforseeable future, too expensive-(thank
for the GST Mulroney), The Pass is one of his favourites but couldn't commit.

Our impressions, very soft spoken, polite, personable...and photographic make up
helps him lots! His glasses are thick!
To end all.. he appreciated our interest in the group and their music, wished
us a wonderful honeymoon.

I've decided to leave the email society--I'm just not getting around to
logging in enough any more to make it worth it--so with great regret,
I gotta go. If anyone asks about the tshirts, please let them know I've
left, but I can be reached via snail mail at: 2200 Monroe St. #708,
Santa Clara CA 95050, or called (non-electronically) via (408) 247-3428
(evenings). I've got a long list of email addresses of people who sent me
notes saying they were interested in tshirts, which might be duplicated,
I'm not sure.

I'll miss the NMS fellowship, and hope that circumstances will allow me to
join it again soon.

Thanks much!
