Interesting.  This is his "story" regarding reunions, etc.  He's ready to go.  He's putting that out there.  I predict a solo album with Al guesting and a solo tour, perhaps with Al guesting at a few dates.

That seems to be the norm these days.  Ged's at a point where he can just have fun with a project.  I can see any or all members of Dream Theater salivating to be on that album...maybe Rik Emmett...probably Ben Mink...and some guy named Alexandar Zivojinovich.

Totally and why the fuck not? Get on the road with a bunch of your pals and have a good time playing whatever.

A little Rush, a little Victor, a little MFH, whatever, hell yes.

I’d be happy if he joined what’s left of The Who or Yes at this point. Fill in for his idols

I’d love to see him play with Roger and Pete and he is a better fit for them than Paladino.

Agree. Paladino is an amazing bass player but his tone is not right for The Who.

He kind of hinted that that in a past interview. He said something to the effect of 'Alex is a cheap date. I'm not." Which is a laugh, but in the context of possibly playing with The Who, one can infer that's where Ged might be setting his sights.

Ged in The Who would be one of those 'Take my money, please" shows.  Yes, not so much. Just my preferences.

Any number of people would probably want to be on a Geddy album. I'll throw in Steven Wilson, and Trevor Rabin.

That would be bitchin' alright.


Hey there goes Alex. He's loaded with money. Wow he's really set himself up great.

I want a "Feedback II" EP, this time with classic Prog covers and guest drummers like Clive Bunker/Barrymore Barlow//Martin Deller and Gary McCracken. Neil doesn't have to come. It can be called the Lee/Lifeson Project - Two Men from Willowdale 

 

anyway here's an interview with Geddy on "Q" on the CBC

Bingo.  And he's likely so busy that there wouldn't be much opportunity for them to do anything.

So I just listened to the Trunk interview.  Good stuff.  The usual.  BUT... what really caught my attention was when Eddie brought up a movie project about Italian baseball that Ged had been working on around 2000 or so.  And Ged mentions that the actor they had in mind to play the lead died in an accident and that pretty much put the whole thing on hold.  My immediate thought was: Paul Walker?!?! :o   In a Ged produced baseball movie?  Damn.
But, he did also say the project might not be totally gone.  Hmmm....

 

Anyways, back to the music.  I really think in this new year Ged and Alex will get together and jam.  We're going to see (hear) SOMEthing new from them.  I can't see it not happening.  :D :D
