(Prog) Geddy Lee says he's come to accept that Rush's touring days are over, following their R40 US trip earlier this year. And guitarist Alex Lifeson reflects that "it's okay" as they consider what to do after drummer Neil Peart accepted a description of himself as "retired" then withdrew from making further commitments after the tour.

Lee tells The Strombo Show: "There's a bit of denial that gets you through. You go, 'Ah, this won't be the last one - we'll take a break, then we'll get back together and do another one.' You don't want it to end. I think I've accepted that it's probably the last one as a tour. We'll see."

Asked about their communication with Peart, Lee says: "We send all these things, but the responses are not as enthusiastic. We talk." Lifeson adds: "It's okay. It is what it is. I've been playing a lot to keep my fingers in it, and I'm finding it's really satisfying.

"I'm going some charity gigs with other guys - old guys like me that don't have gigs any more. It's fun to get together. It's not like it's over, you know." Read more here.
