>From Entertainment Weekly:

Rush's Geddy Lee talks about 'I Love You, Man,' 'Colbert,' and their new compilation

EW: You do a live cover of the Who’s "The Seeker" on the DVD that’s included with the new collection. Why is that song important to you? 

GL: Pete Townshend is probably my biggest hero in terms of songwriting. Anything we could do that’s related to the Who makes me happy. They were so important to being where I am. John Entwistle’s bass sound was really influential on the way my bass sounds. They were really influential on our band in a big way. They were powerful and heavy without it being so over the top that it was like bludgeoning you. That’s something we’ve strived for.
