Oh not not Neil!
This has been a bad week for death – starting last Friday, we had the “death” of the leader of an elite “terrorist” group in Iran – a general who may have had the edge in any Iranian leadership change.
Then we had the 63 Canadians plus others on a Ukranian plane all die in a holocaust of plane wreckage in Tehran. This crash was like all the other very unlucky and unlikely Ukraine crashes – no details, plenty of confusion, no way to know what happened.
Next we had one of the best drummers in the history of the instrument and definitely in Canada die of brain cancer – I didn’t even know he was sick! This looks a lot like Rob Ford’s instant cancer – www.livescience.com/47902-rob-… – Gord Downie’s brain cancer www.cbc.ca/news/health/gliobla…. Apparently he died January 7 – and they waited until now (late Friday afternoon 1/10) to let us all down.
Add to that a major weather storm for the weekend – pre-announced on MONDAY – and we have a MISERABLE return to work week to start the year!
I will add this post to fakeologist.com when it’s back up – it’s being moved to a new server on the same host.

Let’s hope Neil is in the DCP – and that the band gets a big sales boost. Will Rush return in 18 months with a new drummer for a reunion tour? Mrs. Fakeologist says Alex has arthritis and can’t really play – but at least he’s alive. Time will tell – even though it stands still.
