http://www.rushisaba...us-XM-interview

 

Will C also reports that in the Sirius XM interview, Alex mostly spoke about YES and their Rock Hall induction, but did cover a few other subjects. Alex mentioned that he no longer feels constrained by the album format, and felt that he could release smaller numbers of songs whenever he was ready to, although he didn't give any details on what or when or with whom. He went on to say that he and Geddy would definitely be writing and working together in the near future, but didn't give any specifics on that either. When Alex was asked what Neil Peart was up to he just said, "I haven't heard from Neil in quite a while". On a positive note, he emphatically stated that Rush as an entity is not finished and that, "we will be doing things together again", but again - no timetable or specifics. It doesn't look like the interview is available online anywhere, but if you heard it and have anything to add or clarify, please let us know.

They should do an online collaboration like YYNOT does. :)

I think the bug will bite them soon enough. The two of them just signed new endorsement deals, Alex with Gibson and Geddy with Tech 21. There's no way those companies are giving them that much money without the opportunity to play that gear live or on record.

Screw Neil. Replace him and move on. 5000 fewer air-drumming dweebs at a concert is a good thing

I'm pretty sure they are prepared to move on without him, whether they'll admit it or not.  Those guys played with Yes, some of those guys are 10 years older than them, playing equally challenging music, and aren't even thinking about retirement.  Both factions of Yes, now both called Yes, are touring this summer and pre-planning a tour next summer.

Me too. If NP wants to stay out of the game fine with me but no reason why Geddy and Alex should stop.

I'll see the band croak through anything. Playing music should be fun. No reason to bring anyone along that's miserable.

To be fair to Geddy and Alex I don't think they ever really bandied about the dreaded word, "retirement." That was all Peart.

I always assumed that Ged and Al would do something. However, they've said before that there is no Rush without Peart. On the other hand, Peart once said that he would never use electronic drums.  ;)

Keep makin' music if you've still got the passion.  Leave Chuckles out of it if he doesn't wanna drum anymore.  Get a new drummer and don't call it Rush if people are gonna get butthurt, call it the Lee/Lifeson Experiment or something...

Yeah Geddy just played with Yes but no way is Alan Whites playing anywhere close to Peart on the R40 tour.... in fairness they dialed Roundabout waaayyy back likely to suit White who I understand has back issues

Black Sabbath is still touring at their age, so why not?

Just have to call up a music agency and find a temp drummer.  LOL   :)

Nah, sounds too much like a law firm

You've just eliminated 4/5ths of their concert revenue.
