Rush's Neil Peart Only Meant Retired From Touring Says Geddy Lee (Top Story)


.
On Wednesday Rush's Neil Peart Only Meant Retired From Touring Says Geddy Lee was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Rush mainman Geddy Lee has moved to squash reports that drummer Neil Peart had announced his retirement. Peart gave an interview to Drumhead magazine in which he's quoted as saying he's happy to accept the description of himself as a "retired drummer," but Lee says his bandmate was merely confirming that he could no longer commit to lengthy tours.

Lee tells Prog: "There's really nothing to say. I think Neil is just explaining his reasons for not wanting to tour, with the toll that it's taking on his body. That's all I would care to comment on it.

"We'll get together eventually and chat about things. But in my view, there is certainly nothing surprising in what he said. Neil just feels that he has to explain with all the thousands of people asking, 'Why no more tours?' He needs to explain his side of it." Read more - here.
