I've seen some ask "Why Dan Rather?"  I found it pretty cool to see these two generations talk.  Clearly Dan probably didn't have much if any real familiarity with the band, outside maybe knowing the band name on the periphery of his pop culture knowledge somewhere, being a journalist and all (and a damn good one).  But I thought it was cool because this kind of interview begs for different questions and varied approaches to answers.  I dug that Rather was very interested in the Holocaust impact on Ged's life and picked around at that.  That's honestly the most I've heard Geddy discuss it in a stream of conversation.  Clearly that kind of thing is more interesting to Rather than the nuances of Lee's style or why he gave up on the Wal.  :P

Anyhow, I quite enjoyed it.  I get the impression Dan was more than just a bit impressed with this long-haired hippie guy.  :D

I got the feeling Rush is done. And it's not because of Neil Peart!


WHAT?!!! You mean fraroc is wrong?!!

It HAD TO be Peart's fault!!!!!

:P


Peart demanded retirement, Lee accepted the reality handed to him

I didn't get it when Geddy said this was the first time he has been off for six consecutive months

It's not like Rush has been a touring machine the last 4+ years. 46 of the last 50 months have featured no Rush touring. Which is fine, I just didn't get that comment made now, maybe in 2013, but not 2017.


.

So, fraroc IS right after all !

And Geddy is a lazy, loafing slacker!

I got it. Thanks. :cheers:

You have to skip 20 minutes in past the Hendrix stuff.

Thanks for posting that. Geddy Lee sure is an interesting, articulate and modest guy.

You’re welcome and I agree. He seems like he’d be a great guy to have as a friend.

Very good interview.
What did he say that makes you think it’s not because of Neil?

Yeah, I didn't get that out of his replies either.  Basically sounds like he was merely tap-dancing around naming the reasons why.  That's the luxury of being interviewed by someone not really in the know, you don't have to go there as you might a rock "journalist."
If nothing else, he probably wouldn't want to throw Neil under the (touring) bus, since they're actually friends versus just band mates.

Thanks.  I will try at home later.  Hope it will be available for purchase in Canada.

Who's baby is crying in the background?  His grandson must be close to two now.  This sounds like an infant.

Edit:  You hear it right before they break for a commercial and Geddy is singing something called Xanadu.  :huh:

Notice Geddy's smirk when Dan mentions Rush's "loyal fan base"?  :cool: :lol:


Edit:  Uh-oh, John Rogers...did you catch Geddy using the word "pals"?

Right.  It's not a matter of fault, but of decision.  Peart's is that he's done and the others is that there is no Rush without him.  It's pretty simple. I realize Alex is/was also hurting with arthritis and that plays into it too.  Getting old sucks.  But it was a good run if there's nary another song or live show.

Also, props to Rather for the correct pronunciation of "Peert"...not "Purt."  :D

Ged has had time to measure his words concerning Neil's retirement and to come to terms with it - the R40 documentary shows a Ged still freshly hurt by Neil's decision.

Did your heart sink?  Even mine did, and I don't consider myself as much of a fan as so many of you.


If Geddy wasn't Geddy Lee of Rush but just one of us on TRF, he'd be the most fanatical fan of Rush here.

Thank you, Helene Spieler, for leaving the interview up, and thanks again, Eagle, for telling me about the link.  I saved $2.00.  ;)

It was about half re-hashed stuff we knew about. 'so how'd you get the name Geddy?' :facepalm:  But that's to be expected coming from Rather.

The other half was moderately interesting but not ground breaking.

I thought the hour long show about Hendrix's Electric Ladyland album before Geddy was more interesting.

Yea but to the casual or non fan, I think it revealed a lot about the nature and character of Ged and the band.

Kinda sounded like a cat to me.  But there were also other people there.  You can see them when he passes through the room to where the interview was conducted.
