Global Bass interview (2000)[edit]

"The Consummate Geddy Lee Interview"
  • For me, how I feel about what I wrote down turns into a song.
  • I love to write. It's my first love.
  • Music is all about wanting to be better at it.
  • Once I have lyrics, being able to shape them around a song is nothing new for me, I've been doing that for 25 years. The soul searching part of it, the spontaneous part of it, that was, and remains, a really terrific process.
