Has anyone ever seen this? My dad found it on a Rush forum somewhere. Don't worry, I have a reason to post it in General Discussion.

You must be thinkin' of Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath who played at the tribute concert. Oh, and Brian played there too, not just Rog. Even without the video, YOU CAN STILL RECOGNISE HIS PLAYING!!!

Alex Liefson (Rush guitarist) is there, as is Bruce Dickenson, Ian Gillan, Bryan Adams, Dave Gilmour, Paul Rodgers and Richie Blackmore. Don't know the guy on Bass

Wow fantastic I've not seen or heard that before, Mr Rodgers did a great job as usual, can't remeber what year that was from, but I remember hearing about it.

Very cool

This song (especially the original) is really great. We have at the place where they recorded the album. Stood at the very same spot by the stairway they set up their equipment for recording after "they burned down the gambling house".

Yes, it is.

Any of you that bought the record/CD/VHS could easily read the names off the cover...
