GEDDY LEE Doesn't Rule Out Performing With ALEX LIFESON As RUSH Again

In a new interview with The Washington Post, RUSH bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee spoke about reuniting with his longtime bandmate Alex Lifeson for last year's star-studded tribute concerts — one in London, one in Los Angeles — to pay tribute to late FOO FIGHTERS drummer Taylor Hawkins. They enlisted a few drummers — TOOL's Danny Carey, Omar Hakim, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS' Chad Smith and Dave Grohl — to join them at the gigs. At the after-party, Paul McCartney congratulated them and urged them to get back on the road.

"It had been a taboo subject, and playing those songs again with a third person was the elephant in the room, and that kind of disappeared," Lee told The Washington Post. "It was nice to know that if we decide to go out, Alex and I, whether we went out as part of a new thing, or whether we just wanted to go out and play RUSH as RUSH, we could do that now."

During a live show last night a band was performing covers of songs from the 80’s but one of their segues included a prerecorded mixed blend of the atmospheric instrumentation from the first twenty seconds or so of “2112 Overture…” and also a slightly faster played warning from the side’s ending, …”we have assumed control”
I found it odd and was hopeful that this band was about to play some Rush song but it was merely a distracting tease.
