Geddy Lee talks music and wine in new Wine Enthusiast interview
4:18PM EST | comments (32) |

Geddy Lee and some wineThe June, 2014 issue of Wine Enthusiast magazine contains an article where they interview 6 celebrity winemakers, one of whom is Geddy Lee. Here's what Geddy had to say about the connection between music and winemaking:

Making music and winemaking are really quite different processes but I suppose that, at a point, both are dependent on craftsmanship. In music, after the initial inspiration occurs, the rest of a piece depends on your abilities and experience as a craftsman and this is largely what takes place in order for a winemaker to maximize what has grown in his vineyard.

You can check out the entire interview online at this location (thanks rolldaboz).

It seems they were the roasted "beet marinaded tofu" couple

"bait shop red worms".

Does that pair well with a medium rare filet mignon?

Because some hearty reds have been described as (among others) "spent tobacco"
and "bait shop red worms"

because trendy?

By the way, what is up with the size of wine glasses these days, it looks like Geddy is drinking wine out of a punch bowl with a stem.

I agree, SnA is a very good album as a whole. And, to comment on the original post (Geddy/Wine), I'll just quote Alex Lifeson: "I like wine. It tastes good and makes you feel funny"

Hey Oots, love Good News First as well. I think Snakes is a pretty damn good album. Shoot they played nine or so songs off it on the tour so they must have dug it as well.

Lots of love for Spindrift in this thread. It never worked for me. It's a 2 song sandwich (Song A = the hard-edged "spindrift, spindrifffft" section, Song B = the pop-ish "wind that will carry me a little closer to you" section) and neither works together or would even work for me on their own. But what do I know, I think Good News First is the best song on the album and it's widely despised.

#22 - I too must admit that I worked for a flooring contractor for 3 or 4 years. This is why I will never have wall to wall carpet in my house. (pull up enough 10+ year old carpet and you'll see what I mean...)

Happy weekend.
