…that Alex Lifeson tried to get Donald Duck comics banned from Canadian soil because he was offended that he(Donald, not Alex) doesn’t wear pants?

…that singer/bass player/keyboardist Geddy Lee uses his massively fleshy nose, during his time off from RUSH, to help the Canadian government rid the Yukon Territory of the dangerous, troublesome and elusive creature known only as The Gooch? Only Lee, utilizing the impressive powers of his olfactory glands, has been successful in locating it’s whereabouts.

These are the lyrics to Limelight by the best band ever, Rush!

Living on a lighted stage
Approaches the unreal
For those who think and feel
In touch with some reality
Beyond the gilded cage.

Cast in this unlikely role,
Ill-equipped to act,
With insufficient tact,
One must put up barriers
To keep oneself intact.

Living in the Limelight,
The universal dream
For those who wish to seem.
Those who wish to be
Must put aside the alienation,
Get on with the fascination,
The real relation,
The underlying theme.

Living in a fisheye lens,
Caught in the camera eye.
I have no heart to lie,
I can't pretend a stranger
Is a long-awaited friend.

All the world's indeed a stage,
And we are merely players,
Performers and portrayers,
Each another's audience
Outside the gilded cage.
Rush first hit the scene in the early 1970's, And
they were unlike any other band out there! You could tell that thiese three lads from Toronto had some serious talent, And potentialas well!
Yet because Rush refused to "sell out"& write music for the masses, They were basically "Shunned" by thier "Mainstream" musical
"Peers"!?! Still Rush has always written thier music on thier own terms! Unlike the rest of thier genre, Rush is still writing/recording & touring the world after 36 years... Totally Amazing
