Lee Wanted To Kill Lifeson During Rush Rock Hall Speech
But while the crowd loved it, bandmates Lee and Neil Peart were less pleased. Lee tells Rolling Stone: "He didn't tell us he was doing that in fact, I know he had a whole other speech planned. Neil and I thought he had lost his marbles when he was talking.
"You can see the look on our faces behind him, going, 'What the f**k is he doing?' And of course, we couldn't see him act it all out we just kept hearing 'blah blah blah.'
"He's genuinely one of the funniest people you'd ever meet in your life. But I wanted to kill him at the three-minute mark. Neil and I were threatening to knock him on the head and drag him offstage." more on this story
