Rush feature in the UK's The Sun newspaper
1:13PM EST | comments |

Rush is featured in today's edition of UK newspaper The Sun for an article titled Rush: We've found a groove ... It's only taken 38 years. The article showcases the band's new Clockwork Angels album, declaring it the band's finest since the classic Moving Pictures in 1981. The article also contains interview snippets from all 3 band members. Here are some comments from Geddy:

... "We were allowing ourselves more improvisation on stage - that great feeling of not quite knowing where you were going or how you were going to get out of it. It was really exciting. We were really pushing ourselves. Later we said, 'Wouldn't it be great to have those moments on record too?' "

So Peart, perhaps rock's greatest drummer, abandoned his customary meticulous preparation.

"Neil just said, 'Look, I'm not going to figure out all the arrangements, I'm just going to do it on the fly'," said Geddy.

"What he got out of it was that he was just playing, just flying. He wasn't a slave to the traditional structure. He was experimenting throughout. We all were. You can see that we're really going for it. We're jamming - it's loose, accidental, experimental, and it works.

"We found a groove, the three of us. It only took us 38 years to get our groove on!" ...
