Geddy Lee watches and comments on Rush videos in new Rolling Stone interview
1:00PM EST | comments |

Rock Hall induction Crossroads jamRolling Stone has posted a gallery to their website consisting of 10 Rush videos along with Geddy Lee's comments after watching each one; from the Laura Secord Bandstand video of Working Man from 1974 on up through the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony all-star jam of Crossroads. They also threw in a couple of fan videos, the 1976 Passaic 2112 bootleg, La Villa Strangiato at PinkPop, the Time Stand Still music video and more. Here are Geddy's comments on the Rock Hall induction all-star jam, and how they almost played a Led Zeppelin tune:

... "There were all kinds of songs suggested for the song at the end. For a while, it was going to be a Zeppelin song. And then they asked me my opinion and I said, 'We should do 'Crossroads' since all these blues artists are being inducted.' 'Crossroads' is kind of the transition point from blues into rock and it was instrumental in my career. That's why we put it on our Feedback album, too. I think it was Robbie Robertson who made the call. At the meeting, he stood up and said, 'That's the way to go. 'Crossroads' is a cool song.' It's a great jam song, let's face it."
