RUSH Drummer On ‘George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight’; Entire Interview Available Online

RUSH drummer Neil Peart was interviewed for the June 17 edition of “George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight” (formerly “The Hour”). The program, which airs at 11:00 p.m. on CBC in Canada, is hosted by Canadian television and radio personality George Stroumboulopoulos. The entire 20-minute interview can now be seen at this location.

RUSH bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee recently spoke to The Plain Dealer about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the band’s upcoming 20th studio album, “Clockwork Angels”, for which a release date has not yet been set.

“We’ve got about seven songs written,” Lee said. He added, “When you hear the first two songs [‘BU2B’ and ‘Caravan’], which we’re playing live now, they definitely have a heavier sound. It’s the heavier side of RUSH in the early going. But when I think of all the songs that we’ve written already, there’s quite a lot of diversity there. I think — I hope — RUSH fans will like it. We’re certainly going to work hard to make it a great record, as we always try.”
