...that ole' pugilistic guitarist for brainy power trio, Rush. Evidently, the brains lie elsewhere in the band. Seems ole' Alex tied one on then got hot under the collar when his 30 year old son, who had gotten up on stage at some hotel to sing happy new year, refused to step off the stage and security was called. A melee ensued and ended with Alex and and a cop going down a flight of stairs. Of course, a volley of conflicting stories has been fired by both sides. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

It seems this band can't get a break. Poor Neil Peart had to endure two real tragedies in his life, and now he gets to endure this. What a shame.
