Alex Lifeson was a guest on this morning's edition of the Sports Innerview with Ann Liguori on WPPB 88.3 FM. Liguori's conversation with Alex focused mostly on golf and its role as an escape from the daily grind of touring for him, but they also touched on Rush, music and other subjects, including his side projects and the Hemispheres box set. Alex mentions that he spent some time with Neil out in LA when he was in town for the Medlock-Krieger Golf Classic All-star Concert a few weeks ago, and this prompted Liguori to ask whether Rush would ever tour again:

... No, you know - we're all just sort of doing other things right now. For Neil - at the end of the day - 3 hours of playing the way he played was becoming too much for him and he would not compromise and would not want to play at even 1 percentage less, and I completely understand that. I think I felt at the time that we still had some gas in the tank and it would be great to continue for a little bit longer. But when it was all said and done 41 years of touring is nothing to sneeze at. And there's so many things to do in the world. I've been busy playing with other people guesting on a bunch of different projects and that's been really, really a lot of fun for me. Geddy's been working on his book ... we're all sort of working on other things. ...
