New Geddy Lee Interview With Billboard Magazine - Update on Clockwork Angels
Billboard Magazine has just posted a new interview with Geddy Lee where the Rush frontman discusses numerous topics ranging from his influences in life and music, his love of baseball and more.
On the Clockwork Angels front, Geddy had this to say:What can we expect from the next album, "Clockwork Angels?"Here's another interesting tidbit when asked whether Rush might perform another full album live as they did with Moving Pictures:
The first two [single] releases from this album, "Caravan" and "Brought Up to Believe," are a great indication of where this album's going, although there's much more variety than just what those two songs offer. When I look back at [2007 album] "Snakes and Arrows," as happy as we were with that record, in retrospect I feel we kind of overdid it with overdubs. We'd like to simplify that, just in terms of making sure the guitar, bass and drum sounds are big and loud and clear, and any time we are going to add an overdub, to make sure that it definitely is adding and not subtracting.Would you consider doing that with any other classic Rush album?Here's hoping Rush get "...out of their minds..." and play Hemispheres next year :-)
I certainly would. We really enjoyed that whole experience. We played for three hours -- you can tuck a 45-minute album in there and still play lots of new things and lots of other things. If we were really out of our minds, we would attempt something like [1978's] "Hemispheres." If Rush has a cult following, within that cult following there's a following for "Hemispheres" [laughs]. I'm not sure we're up for that one, but I could see us doing "2112."
