Alex Lifeson sat down with Nick Patch of the Canadian Press for an interview just prior to Rush entering band rehearsals last month. Alex talks about the band's upcoming tour, their Rock Hall induction and what the future holds for Rush:

... Well, we're not finished as a band. We still talk about recording. Who knows, there may be an opportunity in the future to do not a big tour, but a series of concerts ... like a week in Massey Hall or Radio City Music Hall. Ged and I are just itching to get back into writing. He just revamped his studio, and he's not a tech kind of studio guy. He doesn't know how probably even one per cent of that stuff works. But he's had this renaissance of being a musician and wanting to play and study more - it's really inspiring to see. When things slow down we'll start to do some writing, for whatever purpose. We've always talked about doing some soundtrack work. With Neil, he really wants to take some time off and spend more time with his daughter. His daughter's very young. After what he's been through, he'd like to be more connected to his home life. I don't blame the guy.

You can read the entire interview online at this location.
