ALEX LIFESON On Writing New Music With RUSH Bandmate GEDDY LEE: "If It Happens, It Happens"

They're still best friends, regardless.

Rush put out what would be their final album Clockwork Angels in 2012, and definitively ended as a band with the death of drummer Neil Peart in 2020. Though guitarist Alex Lifeson said in a interview Guitar World that he's not opposed to making new music with his Rush bandmate Geddy Lee at some point, which would be great.

"We're not putting any pressure on it or anything. We had a lot of good years together and we still love each other very much. I talk to Geddy every other day – we're best friends. There's more to our life together than just writing music. So if it happens, it happens. And it'll happen when it happens."

It would be interesting to hear where Lifeson and Lee are at creatively together one decade after the final Rush record, though really it would just be great to hear the two making music together again at all (and under any band name). Lifeson also touched on his new band Envy Of None featuring Coney Hatch founder and bassist Andy Curran, producer and engineer Alfio Annibalini, and singer-songwriter Maiah Wynne.

"There's lots of straight-ahead guitar, but there's also mandola and lots of manipulated, sequenced things. And I've really become an aficionado of backwards guitar as well. So there's everything from acoustic fingerstyle stuff to really heavy stuff, trippy kind of backwards things to Hendrix-y melodic parts. I'm really quite pleased with it. We have 10 songs and they're all sounding really, really cool."
