Rush News

Interview: producer Nick Raskulinecz on Rush's Clockwork Angels - has posted a new interview with Clockwork Angels Nick Raskulinecz where he runs through each track of the album, including how the new intro to BU2B was recorded in a hotel room, Alex's guitar solo on the title track and The Garden were from the demos, how Geddy initiated writing The Wreckers on guitar, a quick explanation of "who" The Wreckers were, the "mistake vocals" left in Headlong Flight, and other interesting tibdits.
“Part of my responsibility as a producer – the biggest part of my job, really – is to be there for the artist and to help them see their vision through.  This album was Rush’s vision.  It wasn’t mine. I was there to make sure it was played as brilliantly as they could play it, sung as high as Geddy Lee could sing it, and have the guitar solos bring me to tears.  I feel like we achieved all of those elements. There’s so much emotion that we captured, just total from-the-gut expression. Three dudes making music – that’s Rush!” - Nick Raskulinecz,, June 11, 2011
