Juno AwardsRush will be the recipient of the 2015 Allan Waters Humanitarian Award at the 2015 Juno Gala Dinner & Awards ceremony this coming Saturday, March 14th in Hamilton, ON. The award recognizes outstanding Canadian artists whose contributions have positively enhanced the social fabric of Canada. Alex Lifeson recently sat down with Nick Patch of the Canadian Press for an interview to discuss Rush's history with charity and the Juno Awards:

... "It's a way that you can do it as a unit, which Rush is, without making really a big deal about it," guitarist Alex Lifeson said recently from Toronto. "This is really great to get this award - it's always very humbling - but this is just something that you're supposed to do. We don't make a big deal out of it." ...

Lifeson also mentioned that the band is currently preparing individually for band rehearsals - "rehearsing to rehearse" - for the upcoming R40 Live tour. You can read the entire interview online here.
