2. When I saw Rush for the first time the opening act was Mr. Big and boy did they ever suck big time. So lousy their set was that there were only about 60-odd drunken rowdies cheering them on, everyone else went under the seat tiers. I ran into Randy, Tom and John from my high school class and we talked about wives, girlfriends, kids, travel and concert resumes until the chumpy-ass openers finished their 40-minute set. Soon afterward Rush started performing and when they play you KNOW you're in for a treat!
