Rush Rocker Geddy Lee Is Playing Down Reports Suggesting His Bandmate Neil Peart Has Retired From Music.
The drummer made the announcement on Monday (07Dec15) during an interview with Drumhead magazine, revealing his daughter already refers to dad as "a retired drummer", but the Rush frontman insists the media is making too much of his pal's remarks.
"There's really nothing to say," Lee tells Prog. "I think Neil is just explaining his reasons for not wanting to tour, with the toll that it's taking on his body.
"We'll get together eventually and chat about things, but in my view, there is certainly nothing surprising in what he said. Neil just feels that he has to explain with all the thousands of people asking, 'Why no more tours?' He needs to explain his side of it."
Lee believes Peart's comments were taken out of context, adding, "That's their (journalists') job. Talking about something when there's nothing to talk about."
