Rush Interview Part Two

Finally! The second part of our backstage interview with Rush…with more history, juicy details on “Moving Pictures,” and Alex Lifeson reacting to the question that must not be asked!

We’ve kept you in suspense for weeks, now here it is: the second part of our backstage interview with those gods of prog rock, singer/bassist Geddy Lee and guitarist Alex Lifeson of Rush. We met with the lads before a show at the Comcast Center in Mansfield — For you non-locals, that’s where they throw arena shows in the Boston area.

 

Here is Part 1 in case you missed out.

The songs in Rock Band are only the beginning. Each week we’ll be rolling out more downloadable songs, essential tracks (and sometimes whole albums) from every era of rock history. Check the Rock Band website to find out what’s new.

Tracks will usually sell for $1.99 each; with three-pack specials costing $5.49. (On the Xbox 360, that’s 160 Microsoft Points per track and 440 per three-pack). Occasional special or discounted tracks may cost a dollar more or less.

Downloadable content for the Xbox 360 is available through the XBOX LIVE marketplace. Downloads for the PLAYSTATION 3 version of Rock Band are available through the PLAYSTATION Network Store. In each case, the songs are downloaded onto your hard drive.

If you’re playing solo, you can start rocking right away. For head-to-head or multi-player online, all players will need to download the song.
