    You forgot to mention the part when Geddy gave you one of his Jazz basses and thanked you for posting the toneful Theorem demos to the Web! ;)

    Yeah, better to miss a couple songs than the show. I missed half of the first song of both the 1st and 2nd sets earlier this year. (Tom Sawyer and One Little Victory I think)

    Going to see them again this coming Sunday night and I can't wait! Got some nice tickets this time around too. :)
