After 41 Years, Rush Say It’s Over



For over 40 years now, Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductees Rush have been at the forefront of all things rock & roll related. Many even claim that Rush are the founders of Prog-Rock (progressive-rock). It’s certainly not an argument without merit, either. Rush’s songs are complex, intelligent, fascinating, and above all else, iconic for all of those reasons. Rush are one of the best, pure and simple. However, it’s been a while since we’ve heard the band, but the reason why has just been revealed…

In a recent interview with The Globe and Mail, guitarist Alex Lifeson recently gave some insight as to why the band has been quiet, as of late. Here is what he said…

“It’s been a little over two years since Rush last toured. We have no plans to tour or record any more. We’re basically done. After 41 years, we felt it was enough.”

If you’re like me, then you’ll definitely be saddened to hear this news. It seemed as if Rush could continue on forever. However, we should respect their decision to retire. After all, they have spent decades doing nothing but giving us timeless music and performances, and for that, we say thank you, Rush!
