New Geddy Lee radio interview at the UK's 106.1 Rock Radio

A new interview with Geddy Lee aired last night on UK radio station 106.1 Rock Radio. Geddy talked a lot about Rush's recent Classic Rock Living Legend award, their Hollywood Walk of Fame star, their involvement with the film I Love You Man, the Rush documentary Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage, the Moving Pictures 30th anniversary deluxe edition, and - of course - their impending journey across the pond in May to bring the Time Machine over to Europe. He also touched on their progress on the upcoming Clockwork Angels album:

... We've got about - I guess - 3/4 of the record written and are kind of ready to go. We've got 2 or 3 more tracks we'd like to write. We've kind of run out of time now. We're gonna have to go on tour so when this tour is over we'll get back to writing and hopefully finish the record in the Fall. ... We're having fun with it. I mean - you know - there are some very complex moments. There are some very beautiful moments. It's kind of what you'd expect from Rush I guess - a little bit of everything. Now the indication you can get from the first 2 songs kind of sets the tone for where we're going with this record. But there are a few surprises as you get deeper into the record.

So it sounds as if they still have a little more writing to do but still plan on finishing up this Fall. The interview runs about 11 minutes and you can listen to it at this link. Thanks to Flygaricdrummer for the heads up.
