Perhaps Dan and Geddy will sing HB to you, Laura!

It will go something like this:

:geddy: :  Dan, if you don't mind, before we wrap this interview up, there's something I'd like to do.

Dan:  Of course, Geddy.  What would that be?

:geddy: :  One of my fans on The Rush Forum is celebrating a birthday today.  I'd like to sing Happy Birthday  to her.

Dan (beaming):  Awwww

:geddy: (looking straight into the camera out to t.v. land):  This is for you, Laura.

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

Ahhh you pessimists.
Dan: So Geddy, tell us how you got your nickname...

Odd choice for an interviewer but anything with Geddy I will watch.

I wasn't going to watch, but I can't wait now.

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:

True.

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!
Earl has decided to become a big game hunter, only in LA's Griffith Park, he looks for people having sex in the bushes! He calls it Big Earl Hunting!

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!


Earl before the mirror
Appraises his disguise

HAHAHA!  EPIC!

His interview with Hagar was pretty good. They went into some specifics about eddies behavior and Hagar talked about all the chiks he smashed on the f**k tour.. said his dick stopped working after a while cause he was so worn out.

So we can expect Dan to ask a Connie Hamzy question?

Great....

I hope it gets better.  :lol:

Did you see how those two questions pretty much instantly put Sammy at ease while also getting him into an introspective mood? Well done, Dan.

Interview with Ged will likely be at his house...review the baseball collection, review the bass collection and studio, review the wine collection.

All well and good, but it's been covered in the movie.

Something that may be escaping some of you guys is that the intended audience probably isn't dedicated Rush fans. I suspect the intended audience is perhaps the casual Rush fan, or maybe people who have only heard of Rush, or perhaps even people who have never heard of them.

Even so, I am sure the subject of Neil's retirement will come up and the future - or lack thereof - for Rush. That will probably be the only part of the interview we here will want to hear.
