[Rush: One Step at a Time]

This past Wednesday all three members of Rush were interviewed prior to their show in Atlanta by John Roberts of CNN's American Morning for a segment that aired on the following morning's episode. The broadcast version of the interview had been posted online on Thursday, but now the complete, unedited, 25-minute interview is online too. If you thought the short version was good, you will be blown away by this one. This is one of the most personal Rush interviews in years. Among the many subjects touched upon, Roberts asks the guys directly regarding the band's long hiatus in the late 90's in the wake of Neil Peart's personal tragedies. Neil gets noticeably emotional, as do Alex and Geddy. You can watch the interview below or at this link:

You can check out the much shorter, edited-for-TV version at this link along with this short clip of John Roberts jamming onstage with Rush. Thanks to RushFanForever for the heads up.
