That would be a “yessir”.

He’s had that whisky rose for some time now.

I am wondering now if he is perhaps too thin.

That's not a flattering photo, but I think despite that, he looks pretty good.  Ears and noses never stop growing, so they just keep bigger...and the gin blossoms aren't helping, but he looks trim and fit to me.

I think the way the pic has been processed has made his features look a bit stark and unhealthy. Then again it might have been done in black & white to hide a bit of redness.

The real question is who's the guy next to him, Sammy Hagar's dad?

Rhinophyma is a condition causing development of a large, bulbous nose associated with granulomatous infiltration, commonly due to untreated rosacea.[1]
 
Causes
Alcoholism is mistakenly attributed as a cause of this issue.[4] Alcohol, however, may cause increased flushing in those affected.[4]

I think we can consider that to be a Peart smile

Yeah, like the kind of half smile he gets when thinking about throwing one of his fans off a ferry....

I remember a line by Geddy from Beyond The Lighted Stage where he tries to excuse Neil's lack of congeniality towards fans by saying he's a shy guy but that doesn't wash with me. He's not shy at all in interviews and he's not shy at all when talking to people he might meet on the road when riding his bike. He wasn't shy when biking through Africa. He admits this in an interview. It's pretty clear that simply saying he's shy doesn't explain it all. He clearly doesn't want to interact with fans. It's a shame that in all those years Alex and Geddy did meet and greets that Peart didn't want to be there. The people that want to meet him the most are the ones who likely never will. That's a real kick in the teeth to the entire fan base as far as I'm concerned.

NP has been harassed by some nutters though. I get it. The irony, though, is that his stadoffishness probably attracts them.
