In the lead up to Rush's upcoming show in Hamilton next month, the Hamilton Spectator spoke with Alex Lifeson for an interview where he reminisces about past Rush shows in Hamilton.

... "[Hamilton]'s a blue collar town and rock has always been popular there," Lifeson says. "We've always had great concerts there - Copps, Ivor Wynne. We played Hamilton Place in 1975 when it was new. I had the flu and I had to run off stage, throw up into a bucket, run back on and keep playing. A rough night." ...

Alex also discusses the band's current album and tour, Rush's longevity, and more. You can read the entire article/interview at this location (thanks guitarlb). Rush will play the Copps Coliseum in Hamilton on Saturday, July 6th.
