While Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson has been busy with several projects lately, he revealed in a conversation with Guitar Player that his touring days may be over.
When asked if there are plans to tour in the near future behind his various projects, the guitarist said (as transcribed by Guitar World): “I don’t really think about it. ‘trying to get this album [with Andy Curran] out first. “
He then added, “To be honest with you, I don’t think I have the guts to go on the road. I mean, if it was a handful of shows, it might be fun, but beyond that. .. After 40 years of sitting in hotel rooms, I’m not interested. I’ve had enough of this. I love my life at home. “
Lifeson has largely stayed off the road since Rush’s tour finale in 2015, and it appears he’s adapted to no longer endure the drudgery of a grand tour. “I thought I would miss being on stage a lot more, but I really don’t,” said the guitarist. “I did a few things here and there. Small things – usually it’s a charity event or something. It’s pretty fun getting up and playing with other people, but the whole production – the big giant machine – that doesn’t really appeal to me now. “
At the moment, Lifeson has the album with Andy Curran in the works, has been working on a new song with Tom Morello and Kirk Hammett and he has revealed that he would still like to work with Geddy Lee, while also revealing that any music that ‘They Created If Reunited will not be released as Rush after Neil Peart’s death in 2020.
