In 2017, the band Yes were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson of Rush, who were themselves inducted a few years earlier. This is a special moment – as one Prog Rock band gets to induct one of their Prog Rock heroes. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com
It hasn't happened yet. But wouldn't it be cool? Either as a Lee-Lifeson project of taking several songs and rearranging them for an unplugged, accoustic performance? This could be a one-off. Or it could also be the next iteration of Rush, especially if such a project produced one or two new songs. Either way, fans would be treated to a catalog of renewed and reworked material. And this really would be cool.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/steven-christianson/message

Ep 401 - Neil Peart & Geddy Lee of Rush, plus Peter Frampton!
Famous Lost Words
We’re back with Episode 1 of Season 4! This week, we pay tribute to the late Neil Peart with a very extensive series of interviews with Rush. Although Geddy Lee does most of the talking in these clips, we will hear from Neil when he was just 25 years old. Hosts Christopher Ward and Tom Jokic reflect on Neil’s enormous influence and the great pride he took in his craft. Also this week – now that Peter Frampton has finished his farewell tour for health reasons, we listen to a 1976 chat with Peter just as “Frampton Comes Alive” was becoming one of the biggest selling albums ever. Peter is grappling with his newfound success which he finds very gratifying, but also quite mystifying. Don’t forget to get caught up on past episodes of Famous Lost Words – and to rate and review us!
