We all know about Dirk's solo record, My Favourite Headache, but I recently stumbled upon a CD called just My Headache. It had no tracklist on the back, just a note about Rush's induction into the RRHoF.

Curiosity got the best of me, and I ended up buying it. I popped it into my stereo and found it to be an interview with Geddy (discussing MFH, of course). No idea who the interviewer is, though, nor the exact date of the recording. I was not able to find a lot of information about it on the net, though, except for this AllMusic entry.

Does anyone know anything about this release?

I was afraid you were going to say it was nothing but the whole of Alex's "Blah blah blah" acceptance speech into the RRHOF!

Know nothing about this. Time for some research as to how I might get one. Have a few radio shows from that period but not this one. Unless it's a knock off on one of those. That tends to happen these days.

Yeah, this is definitely not an in-studio radio interview. The sound quality is "amateur" (tape hiss throughout; sounds like it was recorded on a portable tape recorder). After ripping it, it appears this is a CD-R, too! I feel a bit like I've been ripped off... Then again, the interview is new to my ears, so there's that.

Show Don't Tell it sounds like the 'My Favorite Headache' interview with Geddy Lee that's referenced on Allmusic.com is similar to what's posted here.

From researching the phrase 'Geddy Lee My Headache The Solo Interview' it says here that the Music Expo label released this recording on November 27, 2015 with the description 'Intimate 1999 interview with Rush's Geddy Lee'. This is also on Amazon as well.

The above mentioned interview with Geddy sounds like it was conducted by the band's late friend and photographer Andrew MacNaughtan.

There's an interview posted with MacNaughtan here where the speaking voice matches.

Could be him, but I'm not totally convinced. But It does seem that there's a comfort level there.

There are a few of these out there. Have one with Alex from 1987 and one with Geddy from 1994. Those aren't CD-R's though.  I'd pay for a silver disc, but I'm not so sure I'd spring for a CD-R.

Listened to that you tube video. Is yours badly edited like that one is? It's like the responses got cut off.

Yeah, if you are talking about these videos, then my disc sounds like this. I was quite disappointed when I heard it was not professionally done in a radio studio or anything. And the fact that it's a CD-R is just the icing on the cake. :lol:

That's cool you have some actual silvers, though. Would be interested in hearing them.

I missed your post. Great stuff — it sounds plausible that that could be Andrew MacNaughton as the interviewer!

I chuckled because on track 10, Geddy mentions that the picture of the band taken in the insert for Grace Under Pressure is, in his mind, one of the worst photos taken of the band. :lol: I expected more of a response if it was Andrew in the room with him, but then I don't think he did photography for the band until Presto era.

They might be online. Have no idea.    So your disc is poorly edited and cut the same way as those you tube videos?

Geddy has ALWAYS hated that photo session and I'd say it's difficult to argue with him although there are some sessions that are just as bad if not worse.
