RUSH bassist/vocalist GEDDY LEE has one again confirmed what most Rush fans already know: the fantastic Canadian Prog-Rock band is done. For good. In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine about the upcoming 40th Anniversary release of the 'Hemispheres' album, Lee was asked about the current state of the band, to which he reiterated that "there are zero plans to tour again." He went on to say, "We're very close and talk all the time, but we don't talk about work. We're friends, and we talk about life as friends. I can't really tell you more than that, I'm afraid. I would say there's no chance of seeing RUSH on tour again as Alex [Lifeson, guitar], Geddy, Neil [Peart, drums]. But would you see one of us or two of us or three of us? That's possible."  In addition to kinda, sorta leaving that door open, Geddy also acknowledged that it's "possible" that he might work on a new solo album (his 1st & only solo recording was 2000's 'My Favorite Headache') but it is very much a back-burner issue for the musician. In the meantime, Geddy is gearing up for the release of his book about the history of the bass guitar titled, 'Geddy Lee's Big, Beautiful Book of Bass' which is due December 4th, and the release of the 'Hemispheres' anniversary set that is coming up November 16th. Rock ON, Geddy Lee!
