No, sorry! Grin

I've been feeling down about this news all day, but listening to Joe Elliott on the radio earlier this evening he very wisely noted, referring to this news and also to the loss of David Bowie on almost the same date a few years ago, that we are still here to celebrate their work. So thank you, Mr Peart (along with messieurs Lee and Lifeson) for the music, and I do indeed wish we could do it all again...

He played in the Dutch version of sesame Street and its surreal to think he is no longer among us

Indeed we did! Original Yellow Wiggle Greg Page had a massive coronary on stage at the Wiggle reunion show, and was saved by members of the audience, including an off-duty nurse. Lucky man, just not his time.

 It was a lucky save.  Just as well it was an adults only benefit show and not a kiddies  concert. It wouldn't have ended well

True, so true! Just imagine the reaction of the kidlets, especially afterwards, if they had failed - not worth thinking about!
