Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson revealed that he and bassist Geddy Lee remain open to making music together in the wake of drummer and lyricist Neal Peart's death last year. Peart, one of the most groundbreaking and beloved drummers in rock, died of brain cancer at the age of 67.
Ultimate Classic Rock transcribed portions of Lifeson's new chat with Make Weird Music, where he spoke about starting to work on his own: “After we finished the last tour in 2015, I started just writing on my own and doing some stuff. Geddy was working on his book. We talked about getting together and doing some stuff together, but it got very, very busy for him, even after he finished writing the book — taking it on the road. So we never got a chance to sit down and start working or just having some fun together.”
He revealed that making music together is never far from the minds: “We still talk about it, and I'm sure we will (work together). Of course, now with the pandemic, it's kind of wrecked things for a bit. But we're both eager to get back together and kind of get back into that thing that we've done since we were 14-years-old that we love to do. And we work really, really well together. So we'll see what happens with that.”
