After more than 35 years making music together, legendary Toronto-area rockers Rush, you might think, wouldn’t have much left to accomplish. But this weekend, the trio of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart will be inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame. >> The honour arrives just as the band is back in studio, writing away and gearing up for another spin around North American stages. Lifeson talked to The Globe and Mail about the hallowed halls of fame, and enjoying the fourth decade of Rush. <<
There are 2 bands in the world that if they are touring, I WILL be there no matter what. Saw a leg off? I'll hop there. No prizes for guessing what the first band is, and seeing as I've just posted on this thread, no prizes for the second either.
So, to cut a long story short, the only reason I'm posting this waffling nonsense is to prostrate myself upon my prayer mat at the temple of Lee, Lifeson and Peart. Or to put it anothe way.....new album and tour, yes please...!
Having said that (or possibly not said anything) just out of curiousity have Tull and Rush ever shared a bill anywhere ever? They're not exactly musically together, but I would imagine they do have a bit of a crossover fanbase.
It seems that prior to releasing their latest album Rush are going to be doing a hits tour with a few nuggets of new stuff thrown in too across the US this year. That sounds very cool. I am crossing everything a gig or two in the UK happens too.
I nearly forgot to mention....the hits part will include Moving Pictures performed in it's entirety. Now I am foaming at the mouth. ;D
