Geddy Lee Clarifies Neil Peart Retirement Rumours

Geddy Lee Clarifies Neil Peart Retirement Rumours
Well it certainly has been an interesting 24 hour period in the world of Rush. First, as we reported yesterday, Neil Peart apparently confirmed that he was retiring, based on an article that appeared in the December 2015 issue of Drumhead magazine.

Once that news broke, so did the Rush internet as multiple new sources began proclaiming that Rush is no more, Neil Peart is done, and the music world, as we know it, is over.

Ahem.

Today, Geddy Lee was quoted in an new article from TeamRock that Neil was "merely confirming his position on touring."

From the article:
Lee tells Prog: “There’s really nothing to say. I think Neil is just explaining his reasons for not wanting to tour, with the toll that it’s taking on his body. That’s all I would care to comment on it.

"We’ll get together eventually and chat about things. But in my view, there is certainly nothing surprising in what he said. Neil just feels that he has to explain with all the thousands of people asking, ‘Why no more tours?’ He needs to explain his side of it.”

Asked whether he feels Peart's quote was taken out of context, Lee adds: “I think that’s absolutely right. That’s their job. Talking about something when there’s nothing to talk about.”
"From the lowest low, to the highest high..."

So I think the entire Rush community can now take a collective sigh of relief. For now, anyway...

  1. They've each said that regardless of Neil's position on touring another Rush album is a real possibility.

  3. There is no way, NO WAY that Neil would announce his FULL RETIREMENT to a periodical magazine BEFORE he announced it to his professional collaborators. Wouldn't ever happen.
