Neil Peart's sad childhood Halloween memory

[Mosquitoes, stalkers, Stephen Harper bedevil Canadian musicians]

I found this fun article on CanadaEast.com this morning where they spoke with various Canadian musicians about their Halloween memories and what scares them. They talked with Neil Peart who had this to say:

... Rush drummer Neil Peart ... says he's haunted to this day by a sad childhood Halloween memory.

"I probably was about six or seven, dressing as Zorro, with a mask on and it was pouring rain," Peart says recently from his home in Los Angeles.

"And the rain was under my mask and I stabbed myself in the eye with my plastic sword. I was walking down the street crying my eyes out." ...

Careful with that sword kid - you'll poke your eye out. :)
