  1. My pleasure. I hope you dig the film!
  2. QUOTE (Chicken hawk @ Aug 19 2011, 07:53 PM) So will Alex be visible in the movie? No... he's not lending his thespian skills to this one.
  3. QUOTE (PassTheAmmunition @ Aug 19 2011, 06:14 PM) I'm wondering if Alex's antics cracked up any of the people he was performing with to do this effort. Safe money is on YES You can't be around Alex for more than five minutes and not be laughing.
  4. QUOTE (tel @ Aug 17 2011, 02:19 PM)so was ged not invited to the party? We didn't want to push it.
  5. Sorry it took so long... I'm still not sure I have permission for this... but here's the link: Don't Look Back. ETA: Not sure how I cut the end of the song off, but it had a little strum out.
  6. Yeah... it's an Alex single, sans Geddy and Neil. How this came about: Michael and I got to know Alex and Geddy when they were in LA finishing Snakes & Arrows. Alex is a movie-buff and literature-buff and he expressed interest in scoring films. (I hope you detect my admiration shining through... he's truly one of the greatest guys I've ever met. Geddy too, but that's a different story.) As we were putting THE DOUBLE together, Michael and I told Alex we'd love for him to be included any way he wanted. We did the movie for very little money so we weren't going to be able to afford him but we wanted to throw it out there. He was between the two tours so he asked us to send him the latest cut of the film and he started talking to the composer (Debney) via email and the phone. Then he just went to town... the guy is astonishing. And generous. The single is definitely not a RUSH song but you can sure here Alex's distinctive "voice" all over it. Still working it out on posting it. Really sorry I jumped the gun.
  7. Sorry for the delay. I'm asking for permission instead of forgiveness. Maybe should have gone the other way around. The movie is limited release... 10 cities, something like 50 screens. It's the first movie my partner Michael directed... we did it with independent financing so not the big studio release. Trailer will be out this week I think. It's cool to be here. Alex is the best.
  8. Thanks everyone... let me figure out the best way to do this. And the way that doesn't get me in trouble with the studio.
  9. Hi... I'm Derek Haas... I wrote the movie THE DOUBLE that comes out next month. Alex Lifeson played guitar on the score throughout the movie (the great John Debney composed it.) We asked Alex to write a song for the closing credits and he wrote/recorded "Don't Look Back," a brand-spanking new single. I'll upload it here if someone will tell me how to do it. (I'm new to the Rush forum.) Maybe I'll put it up on youtube if that'll help.
