Geddy Lee interview with Terrorizer magazine

Mon, May 28, 2012@8:50AM | comments removed/disabled

Terrorizer magazine will feature an interview with Geddy Lee in their next issue and have posted a few excerpts online here and here. Here's what Geddy had to say about the term progressive rock:

"For me, you look at a band like Radiohead, who I am always impressed with, I think they're enormously talented. To me, they're a progressive rock band. You don't have to sound a particular way to be a progressive rock band, and that's my view on it. We are a hard rock band, we are a progressive rock band, but our roots are in hard rock more than they are in ELP or something like that. It's different strokes for different folks. Radiohead are a kind of progressive alt band I guess, but the key is that they're trying to bring other things into their music, and that's what a progressive band does, tries to expand what they are by adding other influences without too much prerequisite."

Thanks to RushFanForever for the heads up.
