Alex Lifeson talks Lerxst Amps, making music with Geddy, and more in a new Ultimate Guitar interview
With the release of his new line of Lerxst Amps, Alex Lifeson has been hitting the promotion interview trail. Recently he connected with Ultimate Guitar's Greg Prato for an 18+ minute interview where the topics extended to his performance on the Taylor Hawkins tribute concerts, his signature Epiphone Les Paul guitar, and why he picked Gibson over Fender back in the day. Of course the conversation did touch upon the possibility of making music with Geddy Lee in the future:
... I don't know. There's certainly a lot of interest in us doing something. I think for a lot of Rush fans, they've been hoping for ... Geddy had his book tour. I went out on a few of those dates with him. I think that's kind of sparked more interest in us working together. Ged's a very busy guy. He's written a couple of books over the years. He has a lot of stuff that he's into. This is my studio in my apartment. I've been working on the Envy of None stuff as well as a few other projects.You can read additional excerpts from the interview at this LINK or watch it below.
So I've been playing and recording for all these years. When he's ready, he always says, 'Come over for a coffee and we'll go down to the studio and bash around a few notes.' Yeah, call me. And so far he's been so busy, but I think maybe in the new year - or this is the new year - maybe soon we'll find the time to sit down and see what happens," Lifeson added. "Maybe nothing happens. Maybe it's not there anymore. Maybe it's gonna be amazing. I don't know. We'll see. Honestly, it's not a priority for us. We're happy in our lives. So, it's not like we need to go back to something. And that's my fear. That if we - that would be the expectation, this is like Rush 2. But by necessity it has to be something different. And it can never be Rush. Without Neil, it can never be Rush. That's it. It's over. But you never know what can happen. So we'll see...
