Geddy Lee Explains Rush Time Machine Inspiration

(hennemusic) Rush continue to do interviews to promote their recently-released CD/DVD set "Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland."

The project captured the band live in the Ohio city that first showed radio support to the group. Bassist Geddy Lee spoke with Billboard about what moved Rush to perform their 1981 classic, "Moving Pictures," in its entirety on the tour.

"We thought that was the perfect time, and the perfect album to do that with," says Geddy. "Because I guess it would be considered our quintessential album, and it was the 30th anniversary of that album being released. It also gave us the opportunity to play an 11-minute song on that album called 'The Camera Eye,' which we had never really embraced as a live song." Can fans expect more classic album shows?
