Alex Lifeson Talks Rush's Uncertain Future in New Rolling Stone Interview

Alex Lifeson Talks Rush's Uncertain Future
Rolling Stone magazine recently caught up with Alex Lifeson to discuss the low-hanging fruit of Rush's future. While the news is anything BUT new, Alex does confirm (once again) that Rush is essentially done with lengthy tours.

From the article:
"We had such a great time on the tour," Lifeson tells Rolling Stone. "And it was really nice to go through all the material in reverse chronology, and I think our fans really enjoyed it. I think that no matter how long it would have been, it would have been too short. Neil was prepared to commit to 30 dates and he told us that right from the very beginning. He didn't even want to do the tour, to be honest with you. It's been increasingly difficult for him, but he committed to the tour and we got through it. As far as he was concerned, that was the end of touring."
Asked if Lifeson (and Lee) might tour together sans Peart, Alex replied in his usual witty form:
"Well, we have been saying that every 40 years, we fire our drummer and get a new one..."

    No respect for the new guy......hahahaha

    If we get another CD, great. If we get a weeklong run of shows in LA, Vegas, or Toronto, great. If we get a worldwide broadcast concert/album launch pay-per-view, great.

    If we get nothing and like it (this morning's Caddyshack quote), then we had a good run, and are thankful for all they gave us and left in their wake to relisten, rewatch, and rediscover.

    That is all.

  2. Here's hoping for a new album! Fingers crossed.
