Alex and Geddy tour Rolling Stone headquartersRollingStone.com has posted a new video interview with Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson from when the pair visited Rolling Stone headquarters in New York for an interview back in February. Rolling Stone's Andy Greene takes Geddy and Alex on a tour of all of the Rolling Stone covers, and they reminisce about John Lennon, Led Zeppelin and more. From RollingStone.com:

Rush's army of fans will probably never forgive Rolling Stone for neglecting to ever put them on the cover, but the members of the band truly couldn't care less. Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson stopped the the magazine's headquarters a few weeks ago and we gave them the grand tour, including a long hallway that displays every cover from the magazine's 46-year history.

The journey through our past caused the future Rock and Roll Hall of Famers to reflect on their own history, including their first meeting with Neil Peart, waiting in line to see Led Zeppelin and working on Moving Pictures when word came down that John Lennon had been murdered. A Rodney Dangerfield cover from 1980 also caught Geddy's eye. "I think this is the most appropriate cover to remind me of Moving Pictures," he says. "I identify with Rodney." Much like the comedian, they didn't get nearly enough respect at the time.

You can watch the video below or at this location. It's ironic that last year on this date the April Fools joke that I did in collaboration with Cygnus-X1.net and Power Windows involved Rush finally making the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Maybe Rolling Stone is hinting at something here? Hmm....
