I rewatched it recently, and it's really hard to watch his comments about Rush playing together and about Neil. We know now that he knew Neil was ill and he was deliberately avoiding saying anything, but he sounds so sad.

He knew there was no future, at that point.

RIP Neil Peart.

Especially when he looks over his glasses.

I knew someone who toured with the group and Geddy loved throwing baseballs. He’d basically go through pitching innings like an actual game.

Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters has a 6 part series called "From Cradle to Stage" where he and his mother interview other musicians and their moms. One episode is an interview of Geddy and his 90 year old mom. It's a treat. If you don't have Paramount +, sign up for a free trial just to watch the series.
