New Geddy Lee interview in the Toronto Sun

There's a new Geddy Lee interview in the Toronto Sun where Geddy talks about the band's Clockwork Angels album. Geddy talks about the conceptual nature of the album, comparing it to The Who's Tommy:

... "You know, so many of our albums were really concept albums, we just didn't say it out loud," said Lee, 58, while seated in his manager's offices in Toronto recently.

"This is more overt. We're admitting to it ... I think (Tommy's) a good reference to me because what I love about Tommy is you pull songs off Tommy and they stand on their own ... They're rock songs that are not necessarily dependent on the other rock songs on that album to be good and to be valid and that was something I was after with this album." ...

You can check out the entire article/interview at this link. The interview also appears in JAM!, who also have some additional content posted where Geddy discusses the creative process. Thanks to RushFanForever for the heads up.
