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
