Love it, looking very forward to this

Not sure what the problem is here though - how could anyone have a problem w/ Dan Rather interviewing Ged ??

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!

Ed you made my night!!  

I'm going to watch the interview now just because of your amazing post!


RUSH ON!

Why wouldn't you have watched?

It's Geddy! It's not like he's going to embarrass himself doing anything anyway.

Hell, he looked cool throwing that first pitch at that Blue Jays (I think it was) game. Even hamming it up with the mascot and winding up on his way to the mound was enjoyable. :hail:

The Big Interview is actually pretty good. I've watched a few with artists I'm not a fan of at all and still found them interesting.

What's the purpose of the interview and what will Geddy say that we don't already know?

Unless Geddy is using the interview to debut his new band with Alex.  Then, of course, Geddy and Al will come here to read what Rush fans think of that idea.  :)

Earl has mirrors set up around the bushes in which he's having sex in!

He likes to confirm what he's doing!

And he still calls it BIG EARL HUNTING!

That's the responsibility of the interviewer to elicit new info from the interviewee.

Surely, there's a wealth of Geddy history and aspirations (past or present) that we don't know about. Previous interviewers just haven't asked those questions mainly because they were probably concentrating on questions regarding the release of the current album at that time.

Although Dan occasionally gets some insightful answers, I'm betting that this will be superficial with Geddy giving his polite auto-pilot answers.

He's probably a Neil fan.  Couldn't get Neil for an interview, so he got Geddy.  I bet he asked Geddy after the interview, off camera of course, if he could get him Neil's autograph.

When the topic of Neil is brought up, there are a lot of people here that make the very valid point of musicians ACTUALLY HAVING  a life outside music - family, upbringing, health, travels, etc

Geddy Lee is not necessarily Rush .. The man has led an amazing life, and from what bits and pieces I know about his parents, they too had enough experience in their lives to fill a book ..

Whether Dan Rather asks interesting questions, we have to watch to find out ... But Geddy could do an entire interview or write a book without even mentioning Rush and it could still be interesting ..
