Looks like Rush is done after 40 years.

Well, technically, he doesn't want to tour anymore.

So they could still do albums and other stuff.

Lifeson said he would be open to new material but Peart seems to be more content on just retiring to be with his young family.

Quote:
If that’s the case, it appears Rush is no more. In a new interview with Drumhead Magazine (via Jambase), Peart spoke frankly about his coming to terms with retirement. “… Lately Olivia has been introducing me to new friends at school as ‘My dad– He’s a retired drummer.’ True to say–funny to hear. And it does not pain me to realize that, like all athletes, there comes a time to… take yourself out of the game. I would rather set it aside then face the predicament described in our song ‘Losing It’ (‘Sadder still to watch it die, than never to have known it’).”

Aside from aforementioned health issues, Peart previously mentioned his desire to spend more time with family. Following the tragic deaths of his daughter and first wife in the late ’90s, Peart remarried in 2000. He and his wife had a daughter, Olivia, in 2009.
That being said he has changed his mind in the past after the long layoff when his wife and daughter died.

this was something they had speculated about for the past 4 years. Peart did not getr dragged around for the past 2 tours and CDs--but he was not as motivated as he once was--one of the greatest rock lyricists of all time--redefined what a song could be about and that all rock songs did not have to be a hump song or a song about chasing and getting a girl

If I can find the comment I will post a link--but during the time after the death of his first wife and child he reflected a lot on how much he missed with both of them--especially his daughter being on the road so much in the 80's and 90's--I think he was given a do over to be more involved with raising his second daughter and actually being a husband--so i think he will just do that

A sad day if this holds true. But they've all earned their retirement and then some.

Well for Clockwork Angels he put a lot of work in when you consider not only writing the whole concept album but also co-writing the steampunk style book that went with it.

There's been no official statement from the band. The origin of this is a poorly written article that people are interpreting their own way.

Close this thread.

May have given him a glimpse of what he could do (aside from the important family stuff) with a post-Rush life.

It is his first work of fiction but he does have 3 or 4 non-fiction if I recall.

the band appeared on Chicago FD a month ago and Alex and Geddy said they were in Chicago for their farewell tour

Alex Leiffson in MANY interviews said that Rush would be changing how it does thing--he called it slowing down to a snails pace--

He was taking about doing a week of shows here and there. Big difference from retirement.

When a band retires retires after 40 years, it's not the end of an era. Retirement is just a natural part of life/concept that kids under 50 can't grasp.

I'm really happy I was able to see them on this last tour. And If this is really the end of Rush, Clockwork Angels is one hell of a final album.
