Rush Vs Police
BW&BK reports: For the past year, John Cannivet said he has had to bite his tongue as he's read distorted versions of an altercation he witnessed between the lead guitarist for Rush and Collier sheriff's deputies on Dec. 31, 2003. As an employee of The Ritz-Carlton, Naples, where the fracas occurred, he hadn't been allowed to comment, even though he saw first-hand what happened in the stairwell of the hotel. 

But now that he no longer works for the hotel, he has this to say: Collier County sheriff's deputies went way too far. 

"It was extreme police brutality," said Cannivet, who was the assistant manager of stewarding until leaving that job in January. "The whole time all this was going down, I'm thinking, 'God, what did these people do? It must have been something really bad.' It just bothered me."

All that changed after the Winnipeg show as the band attempted to cross the Canadian-U.S. border for today's show in Grand Forks, ND, at the Alerus Center. Mighty Mike, the band's resident "little person," emcee and fire-breather was detained by authorities.
