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 ??

I know right? Man some people.

Maybe Dan is a Rush fan.

Who would have ever guessed?  :cool:

They never wrote a song about him getting beat up so that's a plus.

He didn't seem to mind that one...

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.
Maybe there will be a new twist to the plot.  :codger:
oh yeah, bring in the dogs! we'll see his twin terrors.

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.


Dan:  The old Red Rocker himself.  So where does that name come from, anyway?  

(follows up with...)

Dan:  So who is the Red Rocker, really?


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.
You think Sammy was nervous?  He didn't say anything he hasn't said a hundred times in interviews.

Not after the ice-breaker, no.





ETA (cuz I can see it coming): I don't know what his state of mind was before the cameras were rolling.

Here's a sneak peak of the Dan Rather 'upcoming season' promo trailer below that features a few seconds of Geddy speaking.



Like the Peter Mansbridge one Geddy did during the 'Clockwork Angels' era below, he's interviewed at his home as well.

For those not too jazzed about this interview, what would you do to make it the best interview possible? Be specific.

Would you get someone else to interview Geddy? If so, then who?

What questions would you want asked? Be specific.

Would you rather have no interview?

I for one am excited about seeing Geddy in the spotlight once again. I get that Rush is over, but did Ged and Al have to be so removed from the media as they seem to be right now? Come on guys, give us a prospect, or any kind of hint about future projects!!!

Truth is, they're both probably less than a 45 minute drive from you so you should track them down and ask them! ;)

I was running the other day towards Bridle Path here in Toronto, and a friend from the same running group said "hey, that´s Drake´s house". I said "who???", much to her disbelief. I honestly didn´t know who he was, and had to google him afterwards. But hey, I was thinking Alex and Geddy probably live in the same area if they spend time in Toronto...should I stalk them?

Sure why not! Google maps says you're 1 hour 52 mins walk from Geddys place or 20 mins in a car, let us know what he says when you arrive!!

Judging from the clip in which Geddy appears, I think most of us know. ;)

From Parade Magazine - Dan Rather Gets The Big Interview

Who’s your favorite musician?

I am going to pass on that because my job is to interview a lot of great musicians, but let’s speak of someone past — Classical music: Mozart. Popular music: Frank Sinatra. Country music: Hank Williams.

1 - I don´t know where they live...

2 - I don´t live in Bridle Path - the average house there costs CAD 5 million!!! I´m training for a marathon, and ran past that suburb when I did my 32km run.
