M AHLER shared that he has fond memories of listening to the band Rush during his sophomore year at Avon, especially with classmate JOHN A. COOPER ’87. During the 2017 holidays, Peter watched a 2016 documentary of Rush’s final tour and was amazed and surprised to see a brief interview clip of John at a Rush concert. Peter hadn’t spoken to John since his Avon days, but he gave him a call and was glad to hear that John is doing well and still listening to Rush.
