Rush Producer Comments On New Album

(Classic Rock) Rush producer Nick Raskulinecz admits he had to fight against his own passion for the band in order to get the best out of them in the studio. But the results their upcoming release Clockwork Angels was worth the effort, he believes.

"Yes, I'm a Rush fan. I f**king love Rush. But if I let that get in the way I'm not doing my job. I can't let that taint my objectivity as a producer," Raskulinecz tells MusicRadar. "Sometimes it's hard, especially when you become friends. Things get more emotional when you know the guys. But you have to do what you're supposed to do, with the right amount of passion.

"I do just that. I feel this music. I feel it in my heart. There were definitely moments when I had to walk in the room and tell Alex Lifeson that his guitar part could be better. There were other times I would stand in the drum room with Neil Peart, a drumstick in my hand, and I'd talk to him about certain fills and licks. Same thing with Geddy I just did it."
