Geddy Lee on Singing Neil Peart's Lyrics - New Video Interview
Roadrunner Records has just posted a new video interview with Geddy Lee where Rush's frontman discusses how he approaches singing the lyrics that Neil Peart creates.“It’s an interesting dynamic because it’s a relationship we’ve had for over 30 years,” explains Geddy. “Obviously, me being the spokesperson for his lyrics is an intimate and difficult relationship just in the sense that I have to really believe what I’m singing – because if I don’t, you can tell. You can’t fake something like that.”You can watch the video below or directly at this LINK.
“So, for me,” continues Lee, “I have to try and get into his headspace and I have to try and understand the lyrics from a point of view that’s meaningful to me even if it’s not always the same as the writer’s intent.”
