Rush- Signals 40th anniversary- Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson 8-22

Rush was already a veteran band which had sold over a million copies of its last two albums before Moving Pictures, so by the time the mainstream caught up to that blockbuster, the band and their loyal fans had evolved into new emerging Eighties sounds incorporating technology peppered with World Music flavors. What resulted was Signals, an album not without controversy at the time of its 1982 release but seen now forty years later by my guests Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson as vital to the longevity and musical relevance of Rush. We will share “Subdivisions”,”New World Man”,”The Analog Kid”, “Chemistry”, and “The Weapon” along with my rare interview with the late Rush drummer/lyricist Neil Peart on the Signals fortieth anniversary here In the Studio the week of August 22. –Redbeard
