LeeLifeson could be on the way, but what happened To Peart?

Now, the headline isn’t sad or dire as it sounds, but what does it all mean? According to Ultimate Classic Rock radio host Eddie Trunk said, after immediately eliminating any chance of drummer Neil Peart participating (“I’ve heard that he doesn’t even have drums in his house anymore,” he said) Trunk revealed that Rush frontman Geddy Lee “told me he is actually reinvigorated. He told me at the time he made some changes to his diet, which helped his voice, and [that] he had a ton of energy, and he wanted to make music and continue in some way.”

Trunk went on to describe guitarist Alex Lifeson, who has admitted that he’s been dealing with tendinitis and arthritis in recent years, as “somewhere in the middle” about the idea of teaming up with Lee. However, he said “there has been talk about a band called LeeLifeson, which would be the two of them going out and doing stuff together.”

While it’s rumored at this point, I have to say that any music we can get from members of Rush is a win in my book. Rush made their 25th appearance at Los Angeles’ Forum and performed the R40 set on August 1, 2015, which is presumed to be their last live show. If anything else develops you bet your ass we’ll have more.
