Wall Street Journal Hosts a Live Chat with Rush Today
Update: Though it started a bit later than expected and experienced a technical glitch or two, the live chat with Geddy and Alex was exciting to watch, if not terribly informative in content. Numerous questions were fielded during the chat from fans across the globe. The question about "What's next for Rush?" came up more than once:
Alex: I don't know. We take one day at a time...still have the Clockwork Angels tour to do. It all depends.That doesn't exactly bode very well for an R40 Tour...but there is time yet.
Geddy: We need to take a short break from the touring world and recharge our batteries...that will be the time when we decide what we do next.
Both also commented on how "thrilled and exhilarated" they've been over the critical reception of Clockwork Angels. Other questions that were asked focused on favorite songs the guys like to play, the negative side of touring and, more specifically, when the Clockwork Angels Tour DVD was expected to be released to which Geddy responded: "It's being edited right now and I have no idea when it will be released..."

"What's next for Rush?"
"Same as it's always been, man! Jeez! We record, we tour, we recharge our batteries, we meet, we discuss, we record, we tour, we recharge our batteries, we get asked the same questions..."
Why oh why didn't anyone ask about an R40 tour -- or the remastered version of Vapor Trails which is, what, 10 years overdue???Delete
