Wed, May 8, 2013@10:35AM | comments removed/disabled put out a press release this morning announcing a new podcast series with Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers called In Conversation. Alex Lifeson will be the first featured guest on the podcast which premieres next Monday, May 13th. From the press release:

... last month, a few days before the legendary Canadian trio Rush were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, he indulged his inner prog rocker and joined iconic guitarist Alex Lifeson for a laugh-filled, leisurely dinner at the Sunset Marquis in West Hollywood, California. "The invisible interview -- that's what I call it," says Smith. "Friends, thoughts, information -- why do you do what you do? Admiration, respect, insight and maybe a surprise." ... "I've been a Rush fan since high school," says Smith. "Neil [Peart] gets a lot of attention, as he should, but Al is under appreciated, I think. He is as great a musician as he is to be around. I'm honored for him to be my first. He was gentle with me!" ... will publish the first part of In Conversation with Alex Lifeson on Monday, May 13th at and will roll out additional installments once a week for three consecutive weeks.
