Your post reminds me of that scene in Rush's documentary, "Beyond the Lighted Stage". It's when Geddy and Alex are at a diner, and the waitress asks for Geddy's autograph...and only Geddy's, because she didn't recognize Alex!

As Geddy is so easily recocgnizable in public, the filmmakers interviewed him about that whole experience. And he summed it up perfectly, I felt. He said how most times, people are simply being nice, and usually, the whole encounter is over in a few seconds.

I am assuming it can be annoying if someone comes over to you in a restaurant if you're slurping down your soup, but Geddy's right -- the entire interaction is over pretty quickly. While it may be forgotten the next day by the artist, it'll be a forever memory for the fan.
