Rush's Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson were recently interviewed for a story to air on CBS Sunday Morning tomorrow at 9AM EST. From the accompanying photo, it looks like they Jim Axelrod conducted the interview from Henderson Brewing company in Toronto. From the announcement:

MUSIC: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson on the lesson of Rush: "Be yourself and stick to your guns"

The progressive rock group Rush, formed decades ago in the Toronto suburbs by guitarist Alex Lifeson, bass player Geddy Lee and drummer Neil Peart, became Canada's most legendary rock band ever, with more than 40 million albums sold. Lifeson and Lee (author of a new memoir, "My Effin' Life") talk with correspondent Jim Axelrod about their particular blend of musicianship, stagecraft and goofiness; how tragedy upended the band; and what might constitute Rush's next chapter.

The pair have been extremely busy with multiple projects in recent weeks, and this coming week promises to be the busiest of all, so they'll have plenty to discuss. Geddy will be wrapping up the North American leg of his book tour back home in Toronto on Thursday, he's launching a new TV show on Paramount+ on Tuesday, and he'll be auctioning off some of his baseball collection on Wednesday. Alex recently appeared on stage with TOOL in Toronto, he'll be playing in the Andy Kim Christmas show on Wednesday, and he just launched LERXST Amplifiers this past week. The pair are also likely to talk about the potential of making music together once again, as Geddy has been repeatedly mentioning on his book tour that they are planning on doing just that. It's interesting that Alex will be performing at Massey Hall on Wednesday evening, and Geddy will be there the following evening for his book tour. This fact has fueled speculation that Alex might be the guest interviewer for Geddy's show there. Let's hope so!
