Rush's Alex Lifeson Appears On Renman Live

(hennemusic) Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson was the featured guest on the April 22 episode of "Renman Live", a web series hosted by music industry veteran Steve Rennie (aka "Renman").

The episode sees Lifeson discuss his career in music and Rush's upcoming 40th anniversary tour, among other things. Rush are currently gearing up to launch a North American tour on May 8 in Tulsa, OK. Named after Rush's 40th anniversary box set, "R40", the tour may the last one of its size for Rush.

Bassist Geddy Lee addressed the farewell tour question recently on VH1 Classic's "That Metal Show", saying "It's very hard to answer that question for a lot of reasons. The three guys in this band have different opinions on this point - everyone's in a different space right now. Neil has a young child at home and he's said numerous times that it's very hard for him to leave his daughter. She needs him.

"It's clear that we are at a point in our career that we have to slow down - and slow down dramatically," Lee added. "So, I'm not a guy who's in love with the farewell tour idea, but it's clear that this is going to be the last big tour that we're going to do for a while, anyway."
