Rush may not be touring in the future, but that doesn’t mean the band won’t still be working together.  In a new interview, guitarist Alex Lifeson discussed what the future might hold for Rush.

Lifeson spoke with SiriusXM before last weekend’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. According to, he said he and frontman Geddy Lee would definitely be writing and working together in the near future, but did not give any further details.

As for drummer Neil Peart, Lifeson says he hasn’t heard from him in a quite a while. But he did say Rush is not finished and that “we will be doing things together again.” That’s great news for fans of the band, but Lifeson did not reveal specifics.

Lifeson and Lee inducted Yes into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Watch their induction speech above. In the speech, Lifeson said, “We’re honored to be here tonight doing this. It’s really, really great. We all start somewhere. For me, my journey with Yes began when I was a teenager gently fishing out the Yes album out of its sleeve being just a bit freaked by the disembodied head on its cover, placing the needle on the groove, sitting back, letting the music wash over me. I may have smoked a cigarette or something, but Yes were my gateway band in so many ways. There’s nothing so fleeting yet enduring about the way music when you’re 17-years-old. ”

He went on to say, “Yes helped give me the gift of music, which is everything, as you know. They made me want to be a better musician, and that provided some of the determination to one day stand on this stage giving tribute to this amazing band.”
