Geddy Lee recently sat down with UDiscover Music for a new interview where he talks about his Big Beautiful Book of Bass, among other things, including the possibility of a theatrical production based on the music of Rush:

"I've always thought that Rush's music lent itself to theatrical reproduction, especially the concept albums such as 2112, or Clockwork Angels," Lee points out. "The stories have a lot of potential, in terms of staging and imaginative scenery, and they're really tailor-made for that, so I'd love to see that happen sometime."

You can read excerpts from the interview online at this location and watch the entire 9-minute interview below or on YouTube.
