After Rush‘s final tour in 2015 and virtuoso drummer Neil Peart‘s death in 2020, singer/bassist Geddy Lee and guitarist Alex Lifeson thought their Rush days were over. But Dave Grohl and Paul McCartney evidently changed their minds.
Speaking to the Washington Post, Lee says when he and Lifeson took part in the 2022 Taylor Hawkins tribute concerts at Grohl’s request, they weren’t sure who’d be able to play drums with them. They ended up playing three songs with drummers ranging from Grohl and Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ Chad Smith, to Tool‘s Danny Carey. At the after-party, McCartney encouraged them to tour again, and Lee says they’re considering it.
