Rush singer Geddy Lee revealed that he believes he will likely get back to recording and touring in the future, which is bombshell news for Rush fans waiting to see him live again. Geddy Lee made a painful health revelation yesterday.
“When I have some time I’ll pop into a few cities and I’ll do some signings,” he says as he heads for his platform. “I don’t have to have a big master plan,” he says. “I don’t know what’s coming up in my future, but I imagine that I will get back to some other kind of musical employment sooner or later. But whatever I choose to do in the future, the book will tag along with me. I can do both. At least I hope I can,” Lee told Classic Rock Magazine.
Producer Nick Raskulinecz discussed working with Rush on 2007’s ‘Snakes & Arrows’ and 2012’s ‘Clockwork Angels’ in a new Tape-Op Podcast interview. A Rush member revealed where the reclusive Neil Peart is hiding a couple of days ago.
“Sometimes I still can’t believe it happened,” Nick said. “We made two records together, and the first one was… it did great for them. I kind of feel they were looking for somebody to inject some energy back into them and what they were doing and tell them that it was okay to be themselves. I felt like they were looking for a direction at that point in their careers.
I mean, they’d made so many records. And they had just gotten back together after Neil’s [Peart, drums] hiatus and made a record [2002’s ‘Vapor Trails’] that was a little — it was too heavy and disjointed, and it didn’t really sound like Rush that much. And I liked it, but I didn’t love it. And we got together, I was just kind of, like, ‘No. More fills. And classic fills.’ ‘Cause as a lifelong Rush fan, I knew what I wanted to hear.
So I just kind of tried to guide them into what… I feel like the first record we made was their kind of mid-’80s, early-’90s… we kind of touched on that era of Rush. And then the last record we made was total ’70s, very early ’80s-style Rush. There’s a song on there called ‘Headlong Flight’ that’s almost nine minutes long; it has a drum solo in the middle.” Neil Peart’s ridiculous car was revealed last week.
