Rush ~ Clockwork Angels
Before the year is up I'm hoping to find a way to contact the guys responsible, Neil, Geddy and Alex, to implore them to let me turn the album, which is also a novel, into a graphic novel. No, seriously! When I first got into drawing comics I had big plans to turn the seminal 2112 album into a comic book...didn't happen....and then at art school I started making an animated short of the track Cinderella Man, all hand drawn and coloured, frame by meticulous frame I began crafting the film...then it got lost in the post on the way back from the developers...so that didn't happen ether. Maybe one of you out there knows a guy who knows a gal who knows a guy who knows someone close to the band who could put in a good word for me?! Hey, ya never know!
Anyway, just do yourself a great big favour and get a copy of Clockwork Angels and play it as loud as your speakers and neighbours can handle it! Trust me, I've been doing this since 1977 and know what I'm talking about!!
Keep watching the sky
