GEDDY LEE Says RUSH Still 'Hasn't Come To A Decision' About 41st-Anniversary Tour, New Studio Album

Bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee of Canadian rock legends RUSH says that the band has not yet made a decision as to whether it will launch its 41st-anniversary tour next year. "We're still talking," he tells RollingStone.com. "Everybody has a different idea how they want to spend the next couple of years, so we haven't come to a decision. I'm ready and happy to play if everyone else agrees. I think in the next couple of months we'll decide to do something or not."

According to Lee, RUSH will likely hit the road before returning to the studio to record the follow-up to 2012's "Clockworks Angels" album. "My guess is that there would be a tour first," he says. "But I'm itching to just play and record. I would like to make another album, but I don't know where the other guys' heads are at about that. I know Alex [Lifeson, guitar] is ready to write."

Lee describes the decision-making process involved in embarking on another tour as "a group thing." He adds: "It's one of those things where everybody enjoyed their break so much. It doesn't feel like it was very long ago that we played our last show in Kansas City. So it's like, 'Do we have to talk about this already?' But slowly we're getting around to figuring it out."

Released on November 11, "R40" is a superb collector's box set which brings together live performances by RUSH from each decade of their career. It includes "Rush In Rio", "R30", "Snakes & Arrows Live", "Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland" and "Clockwork Angels Tour" plus a bonus disc of previously unseen and unreleased live material stretching from 1974 to 2013.
