    I was listening to Nobody's Hero by Rush and I didn't quite understand what he was saying. I interpreted it either to him having a gay friend or him falling in love with his gay friend. Does anybody know if he is homosexual?

    Thanks,
    Mike
     
  2. Listen to the song more carefully, buddy. "I went to his parties and formed a straight minority"--the narrator's straight, his friend who died of AIDS is gay.

    Besides, Neil Peart wrote the lyrics to that and just about every other Rush tune.

    His sexual orientation is his business, and has no bearing on him as a musician.

    It was a simple question asked in a neutral tone. Let's not blow this out of proportion.

    Sorry, hujo, I thought this was a forum for discussing bassists in regards to their music and things related to bass playing. My mistake.
