What someone said in regards to this interview at a yahoo group I belong to:



"The interview with Alex that was posted at the Dutch Progressive Rock
Pages has been removed from their site after it was discovered that
several sections of the interview were actually lifted from previous
interviews, and apparently other sections (in particular "his" comments
on the American government and the NYE incident) may have been
completely fabricated.

After first hearing that it might have been a bogus interview, I spent
some time googling phrases from it and found at least three answers that
were basically lifted. Two were taken almost word-for-word from other
interviews, including one that was actually an answer GEDDY gave in an
interview with Billboard magazine (and which should have been a tip off,
since when the guy copied it, he actually left in a comment that made
reference to "Alex and Neil" rather than "Geddy and Neil" - as it should
have been if Alex were speaking - but I know at the time I just chalked
it up to a typo on the part of the author), and one was made up of
phrases and passages from answers to a few questions in a 2002 CNN
interview and edited together.

I'm rather pissed about this because I know I was totally fooled by it
and had mentioned it to several other people.

Just thought you'd like to know in case you've read the interview."
I remember watching in amazement as Geddy sang, played bass, and played the keyboards with his feet. I thought, "Who is this guy???"
