Ever since Rush took their bow at the LA Forum on August 1st, 2015, fans have been speculating about what the future will hold for the band- some have accepted that the members of Rush have retired while some hope for a reboot of the band in some capacity.
Geddy Lee’s October 22nd interview with Ryan Reed of Rolling Stone Magazine offered some new insight.
Now that Geddy Lee has finished his newest project, entitled Geddy Lee’s Big Beautiful Book of Bass, he says that he might find himself overcome with boredom and tempted to write a follow-up solo album to 2000’s My Favorite Headache. “If something of a positive nature happens [in the studio] I’ll take it to the next step,” says Lee, but he is yet to confirm a new project.
When asked about the future of Rush as a band, Lee confirmed that there are “zero plans to tour again,” and that he never discusses work or the band when spending time with Rush-mates Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart. Although the traditional Lee, Lifeson, and Peart lineup of Rush is done touring, iterations of the band or solo tours are not out-of-the-question.
