Rush in Print - Rolling Stone Magazine, Guitar World and More
Update (03/23/2013): The transcription of the article that appears in the March 2013 issue of Metal Hammer is now online. The article/interview with Geddy Lee is called Rush and the Weird Rise of Prog Metal. Enjoy.
After Clockwork Angels was released last year, there was an explosion of articles posted about Rush and their new album. Since then, the media blitz has slowed down some, but there have been some notable articles published recently.
The April 2013 issue of Guitar World Magazine includes a great interview with Alex Lifeson titled Big Time Rush. Lifeson chats Rush's upcoming Hall of Fame induction as well as the deluxe reissue of their 1976 prog-rock classic, 2112.

It would be really cool to attack it again with sort of our new way of approaching our older material.
Rolling Stone Magazine's latest issue also includes a brief article on the band that focuses on their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The article is titled Rush's School of Rock:Rush's Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee might loathe disco and know almost nothing about rap, but the prog giants are being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month alongside Donna Summer, Public Enemy and a wide range of other artists. As the band preps for a U.S. arena tour, Lee and Lifeson stopped by RS - and we played them a song by each of their fellow inductees. Here's what they had to say:Check out the entire article at this LINK (Thanks RushFanForever).
