Since the legendary drummer Neil Peart passed away at the age of 67 after years battling cancer it seemed like Rush had come to an end. Since then Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson were together on stage on special occasions playing together but now that Lee is promoting his autobiography “My Effin Life”, he said that they could work together again, not necessarily as Rush.

He told Rolling Stone that they want to meet each other next year and try to write new music together, because it is something both of them are looking foward to.

Geddy Lee says he would like to write new music with Alex Lifeson

“Both of those things are possible. I read recently where I’m planning to do another solo album. I’ve never said I’m planning to do another solo album! I haven’t planned anything. I’m planning to survive this book tour, and then I’m planning to go on a holiday with my wife. Beyond that, I don’t have anything planned. Would I like to write some more music? Now, yes, I would. I am ready for that. Does Alex want to write some more music with me?”

“Yes, he does. He’s made that very clear. And that’s something I will try to do with him over the coming year. Would I like to write some songs on my own? Yes, I would. Again, it’s something I would like to try over the coming year. And that’s all I know. That’s all I’ve planned. Nothing’s in the works, but this glorious thing of possibility exists.”

He continued:

“I think Al and I owe it to each other to have a serious sit-down and play together and see what happens, and maybe all this hypothetical crap that we talked about. Maybe that’ll disappear if we get really excited or maybe it won’t, but I’m not banking on it, and Rush fans certainly should not bank on it. There’s always hope,” Geddy Lee said.

Rafael Polcaro: I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
