It just so happens that in my latest bout of Rush-mania, I had ordered Neil's book and it arrived the other day. Tonight I came across the reference he makes to you, and it's quite complimentary considering who's writing it: "My former bandmates from J.R. Flood had a new band called Bullrush, but they already had the best drummer around, Glen Gratto." Apparently you stood in the way of him joining Bullrush!

i am indeed going to check out Lakeside Park, but I am going Memorial Day weekend (the weekend after Victoria Day weekend, unfortunately won't be able to see the famed "fireworks display.") Let me know if you're playing again around then.
Thanks for the bar recommendation. any lodging recommendations in the area?

If you want to know how Neil found Piece you will have to read Ghost Rider and understand for yourself, As far as Glen, Your name does not ring any bells from the above mentioned book, but I am starting to read Travelling Music, so I will watch for ya name.. Must have been nice to have him as a friend !.

Hey Glenn. I haven't read the book yet, so can't say what Neil wrote about you, but anyway I am a guitarist in NYC and will be travelling by car to TO next month. Plan on stopping in St. Cat's to check out Lakeside Park and perhaps the Niagra folk arts festival. any other recommendations while I'm there?
Are you currently in any bands? any places to see bands around there?

What kind of cancer did Neil's wife die of?
How did Neil find peace?
