I saw the one he did with Ann and Nancy Wilson and it was pretty good. He didn't just ask softball questions and they were both very upfront and honest.

Don't forget that this show is on cable, so there's less restrictions on what to talk about.

I think this is great news!

I've seen a couple of other interviews that Rather has done in that series. I remember the one with Merle Haggard shortly before Haggard died was really good.

Looking forward to this!

Haven't seen any of his interviews, but I'm going to see if I can catch them.

This is great. It's going to be obvious really quickly how much preparation he did for this interview. This is going to be cool.

Maybe we'll get a real answer as to when to expect a musical project of some sort.

DR: Geddy, your first album was released during the Nixon regime. How do you feel about Gerald Ford pardoning him over Watergate?

GL: Er, what?

DR: Your most popular record was released during the Reagan Administration. Don't you think Reagan should have been executed for Iran/Contra?

GL: Uhh.....

DR: Did despair over the Bush 41 regime lead to the recording of Presto without a bass guitar, or that God-awful rapping skeleton on Roll the Bones?

GL: I never thought about that...

DR: During your triumphant return in 2002, were you aware George W.Bush was snorting coke in the Oval Office and paying off  witnesses who could verify he dodged service in Viet Nam? I have proof.

GL: Neil gave him the coke.

DR: Now enjoying your retirement, how do you feel about the current great embarrassment of America?

GL: I thought she looked like an old hag on Anderson Cooper. Build that wall baby! And we want one on our side too!

That would be one hell of an interview
