Alex Lifeson was recently interviewed for the Times of Oman by Gary Graff of the New York Times News Service to talk about Rush's Clockwork Angels album. Alex covers many of the same topics that have been brought up in other recent interviews, and also talks a bit about the upcoming tour:

Composer/orchestrator David Campbell, who worked on the album, has written new arrangements for the live show
