UPDATE - 3/26@11:58AM: John at has scanned/transcribed the entire article and made it available online here. In addition to the Alex Lifeson interview, there is also an article titled Natural Science which profiles the band's early 1980s era, focusing on the making of the Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures albums. There's also a short sidebar article titled Mystic Rhythms which highlights 8 Rush deep tracks.

UPDATE - 3/15@1:28PM: Note: a few excerpts from the Alex Lifeson interview in this issue are now online, including this one:

Asked if he has since come to terms with Rush being over, Alex said: "Yes, I think so. I don't want to be in a band and tour any more. I don't feel the need to carry on with what I did for almost half a century. I'm fine with it now. And I'm as busy as I would ever want to be."
