Alex Lifeson interview with UK newspaper The Star

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:

... “For us to be in a band that’s recorded so much material that’s had this sort of connection with fans is pretty remarkable. We’re very fortunate to be part of that, to have our music leave that kind of indelible mark on people’s lives. It’s an amazing thing.”

And the reward has been devotion to almost obsessive levels from some. “We certainly have our share of intense fans that really take every little scrap of anything to do with us very seriously. It’s interesting, I don’t know if it’s 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.”
