Alex Lifeson interview with UK newspaper The Star

Tue, May 10, 2011@3:00PM | comments removed/disabled

Alex Lifeson was recently interviewed by UK newspaper The Star as part of a preview article for Rush's upcoming May 16th show at Sheffield's Motorpoint Arena. Alex talks about the tour, Moving Pictures, the band's history and Rush fans:

... ďFor us to be in a band thatís recorded so much material thatís had this sort of connection with fans is pretty remarkable. Weíre very fortunate to be part of that, to have our music leave that kind of indelible mark on peopleís lives. Itís an amazing thing.Ē

And the reward has been devotion to almost obsessive levels from some. ďWe certainly have our share of intense fans that really take every little scrap of anything to do with us very seriously. Itís interesting, I donít know if itís scary, that someone can dedicate so much of their life to something like a rock band. Obviously we speak to them in a certain way.Ē
