Geddy Lee Talks to Rolling Stone Magazine About Rush's Future
Geddy Lee recently sat down with Rolling Stone Magazine to chat about the upcoming release of Rush's Clockwork Angels Tour CD/DVD, among other topics. The article, titled Q&A: Rush's Geddy Lee On Finally Taking a Break From the Road, puts to rest the possibility of Rush touring in support of their 40th anniversary next year:"That's not going to happen...My attitude is that as much as I'd like to celebrate 40 years, we need a break more than we need a 40th anniversary celebration. There's nothing wrong with celebrating 42 years."Geddy went on to say this about the end of the Clockwork Angels tour:Are you enjoying the break now? That was a pretty long tour.You can read the entire article at this LINK.
I am, yeah. It was the first tour I finished that I wasn't ready to finish, though. I think it's because I was in the best physical condition of my life. I worked really hard at being in shape for the tour. I was anticipating the difficulty of it. Our pacing is a little better. We had no back-to-back shows, and I spent my days off in the most boring possible way, just resting my voice. So I finished the tour feeling good. I'm usually kind of dragging my ass home at the end of the tour. This time I felt like, "I've still got a month of gigs left in me." But Alex was done in and Neil has a small child at home. He had to get home. So, that's cool. I understand that it's time to knock it on the head.
