"I think with Niel Peart writting the songs,it has taken Geddy's vocals to make those songs come alive and set the stage for a grand musical trip....And as far as his bass playing goes he one of the Greats out there now !"

What Has Been Your Best Music Find?

Posted on October 6, 2011 at 6:16pm 3 Comments

So What Has Been Your Best Music Find?   I've had a few,...I stumbled into a junk shop where they had a bunch of old albums for sale. And I found a Mint copy of Jimi Hendrix's Smash Hits with the poster still inside of it,the poster has Jimi,Mitch and Noel dressed like cowboys on horseback. Also I found an album of Santana's Abraxis with the poster still in it as well...and I got them for a dollar....which I thought was cool as hell...

My first concert was Zebra in either 1983 or 1984. I was in 7th grade and basically had to sneak out for it lol. God that's so very long ago! I guess technically you could say the farthest I've gone is about 6000 miles-I saw Robert and Alison at Wembley when I went to England. It was amazing-the first time I'd seen Robert and the first time I'd been to England. It was a coincidence tho...the England trip had been planned for a year. Otherwise, not very far-I drove to Dallas to see Robert and Alison. When I got back is when I started to seriously collect Zep boots. I had gotten a few already, but I went nuts after that.
