In a recent interview with The Globe and Mail, guitarist Alex Lifeson recently gave some insight as to why the band has been quiet, as of late.
«It’s been a little over two years since Rush last toured. We have no plans to tour or record any more. We’re basically done. After 41 years, we felt it was enough!
For over 40 years now Rush have been at the forefront of all things rock & roll related. Many even claim that Rush are the founders of progressive rock. It’s certainly not an argument without merit, either. Rush’s songs are complex, intelligent, fascinating, and above all else, iconic for all of those reasons. Rush are one of the best, pure and simple.
