Rush In No Hurry
Rush are taking at least a year off – but guitarist Alex Lifeson says the hiatus doesn’t mean the end of the road.
The Canadian prog giants have enjoyed an incredible year after being inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame and completing a triumphant world tour in support of latest album Clockwork Angels. They’ve just release a live CD and DVD recorded during the tour plus a box set and a long-desired remixed version of its 2002 album "Vapor Trails."
On top of that, Lifeson himself won the Spirit Of Prog award at the Classic Rock Roll of Honour ceremony last week.
“We’ve committed to taking about a year off. We all agreed when we finished this tour, we were going to take this time off. We weren’t going to talk about band stuff or make any plans. “We committed to a year, so that’s going to take us through to the end of next summer. That’s the minimum,” he said. source
