Eddie Trunk's Holiday Rush radio special and Alex Lifeson interview

Sat, Dec 22, 2012@9:33AM | comments

Alex, Eddie and GeddyFriday Night Rocks on Q104.3 in New York City aired its first ever The Holiday Rush radio special with Eddie Trunk and co-host Mike Portnoy live last night from 11PM-2AM to celebrate Rush Day. They dedicated the entire 3-hour show to Rush, including an all new interview with Alex Lifeson. Eddie and Mike geek out about all things Rush, play a bunch of Rush tracks including some rare bootlegs, and Eddie airs a new pre-recorded interview with Alex Lifeson. Alex talks for 35 minutes about a number of subjects including the Clockwork Angels album and tour, the 2112 Deluxe Edition, the band's future, Rush's 40th anniversary plans, the band's Rock Hall induction and more. He mentions the extension of the Clockwork Angels tour into 2013, and it sounds like the band has already made plans well into 2014 although Alex didn't reveal any details. So it sounds like the chances of some sort of retrospective 40th anniversary tour are looking pretty good. Reader devoidzer0 recorded the show and posted portions of it to YouTube including the interview, commentary and bootleg tracks. You can listen to it below or at this location.
