Rush Stars Hope To Work Together Until They Are Very Old Men

(Radio.com) When Rush wrapped up their R40 tour last year, many fans thought that that signaled the last page in the band's story. That may not be true, but founding members Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson aren't sure if or when they'll work together again, but that there are no current plans, according to an interview they recently did with the Sound Opinions podcast.

Lifeson pointed out, though, that the band always takes long breaks between projects. "Keep in mind that we had a year and a half off after the Clockwork Angels Tour. We didn't talk about anything to do with the band in a year and a half.

"I think we're just in a stage now where we're just kind of taking some time, reconnecting with our families and friends and pursuing some other interests, and having some fun really. I know Geddy and I love writing together. We've been doing it since we were young teenagers. I'd like to think that we'll do it until we're very old men instead of just 'mostly' old men."

While it seems like Lee and Lifeson would like to get back to work, the big question is whether or not drummer/lyricist Neil Peart wants to record or perform again, noting that the rigors of three hour concerts are probably harder on Peart's body than Lee and Lifeson's. Read more here.
