Geddy & Alex talking rock n roll memories at Rolling Stone
Posted 4/2/2013 9:00:00 AM

Rush's army of fans will probably never forgive Rolling Stone for neglecting to ever put them on the cover, but the members of the band truly couldn't care less. Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson stopped the magazine's headquarters a few weeks ago and we gave them the grand tour, including a long hallway that displays every cover from the magazine's 46-year history.

The journey through our past caused the future Rock and Roll Hall of Famers to reflect on their own history, including their first meeting with Neil Peart, waiting in line to see Led Zeppelin and working on Moving Pictures when word came down that John Lennon had been murdered. A Rodney Dangerfield cover from 1980 also caught Geddy's eye. "I think this is the most appropriate cover to remind me of Moving Pictures," he says. "I identify with Rodney." Much like the comedian, they didn't get nearly enough respect at the time.
