Geddy Lee on singing Neil Peart's lyrics in new video interview

Roadrunner Records has posted a new 4-minute video interview with Geddy Lee where Geddy discusses what's involved with singing lyrics written by Neil Peart. From the interview:

... It's an interesting dynamic because it's a relationship we've had for over 30 years. Obviously, me being the spokesperson for his lyrics is an intimate and difficult relationship just in the sense that I have to really believe what I'm singing - because if I don't, you can tell. You can't fake something like that. So, for me I have to try and get into his headspace and I have to try and understand the lyrics from a point of view that's meaningful to me even if it's not always the same as the writer's intent. ...
