Rush At 40: Geddy Lee Talks the Past, Present and Future
Lee looked back on the past 40 years, discussed the "geek culture" associated with Rush, and dug into the band's masterpiece 2112, which turns 40 next year.
So, is this really it?
Geddy Lee: Well, I don't know, I can't tell you. Its intention was not a farewell tour; its intention was a look back and a celebration of 40 years of music. We happen to find ourselves in a very differing state of mind in terms of doing major tours. Neil is not up for the kind of work that it takes for him to be ready to put out a three-hour show the way we have for the last 20-odd years. So his interest in this kind of touring has dwindled. And that's sort of where we're at. It doesn't necessarily mean we won't do another record together, and it doesn't necessarily mean we won't play another concert together-it just means that for the moment we cannot agree on doing a big tour.
