Maclean's Magazine: What a Rush! How an Unhip Trio Became Superstars

Maclean's Magazine: What a Rush! How an Unhip Trio Became Superstars
The latest issue of the Canadian magazine Maclean's includes a lengthy feature on Rush as well as an interview with Alex Lifeson. The article, which is available online delves further into the uncertainty of Rush touring beyond their current R40 tour due to health concerns for both Alex and Neil.

From the article:
Rush won’t be able to play like this forever, or even for very long. Peart is suffering from tendonitis—he has downsized his epic drum solos—and Lifeson has psoriatic arthritis. “I’m starting to feel it in my index finger and my thumb on my left hand, which is kind of critical,” he says, “so I get cortisone shots and try to keep it as loose as I can. I’ll be 62 soon, and it’s getting a little more challenging to stay on top of it.”

The band’s future, beyond the end of this tour in Los Angeles on Aug. 1, is a question mark: “We’ve talked quite openly about this possibly being the last major tour that we’re going to do,” says Lifeson. “There’s no point in going out and being the ghost of yourself just to make a few bucks.” What’s more, having sacri´Čüced family time for Rush’s career, he plans to be around for his grandchildren: “I want to be the custodian of great experiences for them—that’s a pretty important job.”

Still, with Lee living five minutes away in Toronto, Lifeson is always tempted to write music; “I know Neil would be up for it too,” he says. And with Danniels “cautiously optimistic” about adding tour dates, Rush’s ever-expanding cult needn’t wish for time to stand still.
You can read the entire article at this link however there are R40 spoilers within.

Thanks to Ed from RushIsABand for the news.
