Wired: 12 Reasons Rush should be in the RRHOF

Happy Birthday Neil Peart!

Neil Peart turns 58 today.

Happy Birthday Alex Lifeson

He's 57 years old today.

Alex Interview

The Lehigh Valley News has an interview with Alex that covers work on the new album and memories of making Moving Pictures. An excerpt:

Lifeson says the band has six songs pretty much ready to go and three others almost done. The group plans to write at least a couple of additional songs after the tour. At this point, the CD is shaping up to be a musically varied work.

"There is the epic song, 'Clockwork Angels,' which is really taking shape. It's a multi-parted piece, very dynamic," Lifeson says. "Then there's some stuff that's very melodic and on the softer side, on acoustic, with a strong melody. So there's great diversity there. Honestly, I can't wait until we start really working on these songs. We've sort of got them to the stage where Geddy and I were happy with the arrangements and then Neil kind of comes in and starts working on his drum arrangements, and they go from there. So they're sort of in that pre-drum stage right now, and it's great to see them come to life."

Happy Birthday Geddy Lee

He's 57 years old today.

A brief interview with Scott McFadyen and Sam Dunn is over at Comingsoon.net.

Rolling Stone interview with Alex

New interview with Alex over at Rolling Stone today.

Six songs recorded so far for Clockwork Angels. Sounds like they'll be touring behind it next year once it comes out:

Lifeson says Rush hopes to finish recording during the fall in time for a release in the spring of 2011, followed by a more extensive world tour.

On playing Moving Pictures in its entirety, which was Neil's idea:

Plus, 'Camera Eye' has been probably the top song on our request list from fans for several years, so it really gives us an opportunity to include it in the set and to present it with the full album."
