#23: I'd say part of that was just the format. That would exhaust anybody. I cringed when the moderator got tired of reading and told Geddy to just read the question himself, and Geddy peered at the screen and said he couldn't see it.

Come on, Wall Street Journal! I know you're keen to show off your new technological gadgetry, but if it was going to look like that, you should have stuck to the 1990s chat style, in which the special guest would be in the room with the moderator, who would scroll through the questions himself, read the best ones to the guest, and type back the spoken-word responses. This was just goofy and confusing for everybody.

And somebody owed it to poor Kyle to make sure his microphone was fully working before putting him back on screen...

Happy birthday hermy!!

#22 - yeah, i wish there was one female to represent! I got a request to hop on as i was typing comments and questions, but my cam in on the laptop not my home pc - CRAP!! Technically couldn't do it.

Was it just my perception, or did they seem very tired - i really think this tour is it for awhile for them. I wonder if after the TMT, they were on such a high, they wanted to keep the machine running, as they've said numerous times, they're playing better than ever, maybe they had an epiphany like "hey man, what did we get ourselves into here!" Maybe it was just this format that made it look this way, i don't know.

Really cool that Geddy could answer my question! People always ask them what their favorite song is, but I've always wanted to know what Geddy's favorite song to play on his BASS was. Although, can't say I was surprised by his answer. YYZ and La Villa are staples.

#14 - i agree with you. It was cool to chat with other fans, although the scrolling kept one on their toes. Whew!
