RUSH Guitarist Discusses Band's Future Plans

ToledoBlade.com recently conducted an interview with RUSH guitarist Alex Lifeson.

Regarding the band's future plans, Lifeson said, "Right now we just want rest. We've been working really hard for the last seven or eight years on numerous records, tours, and DVDs; it's been pretty constant through that whole period. We really feel like we need to step back and recharge our batteries and just not think about the band and what we're going to do. You never know, Geddy [Lee; bass/vocals] and I might do some casual writing in the spring, but I'm guessing we probably won't do anything until the fall of next year. At that time ... we'll set out what we're doing.

“There are a number of options open to us. I think the most likely is that we'll record another record and tour off that. Working with ['Snakes & Arrows' producer] Nick Raskulinecz, he's pushing us to think about doing another sort of concept record ... instead of just a thematically conceptual album like the most current records are. Whether we're up for that kind of thing, I'm not so sure. We'll have to wait and see."
