I sure do hope they release one more album of new music. It would be a shame to have the last official media from the band be the R40 documentary.

I don't think I'd want to see another tour out of them. I don't want to see them decline any further. They're great musically but Geddys voice is shot, Alex isn't playing up to his old standard and Neil doesn't feel like he can keep his quality level up. Sure I could see a studio album since they can work on that over and over to make it perfect, but it just doesn't sound like Neil is interested. I heard a while back that he sold all his drums so that sounds pretty definitive to me.

The biggest concern for me is Mr Peart. He seemed to be flagging of late to me, a struggle, not being able to maintain the superb standard he has committed to. All parts are essential to rush, but as one of the greatest drummers, with his age considered, the time is right to halt touring, probably totally.

Nice to see George S back doing what he does best: pop culture/current events interviews.
He was sadly not so good on Hockey Night in Canada.

I think Stroumboulopoulos is the best interviewer out there. He doesn't just ask questions from a list, he asks questions based on the answers he's getting and he doesn't ask stupid questions.

Sadly, George was out of his element for HNiC, despite being a hockey fan. Maybe another format would've worked for him, but the poor guy was hamstrung by an expensive, elaborate, and painfully unnecessary studio set-up, and saddled with annoying co-hosts, which made it difficult for him to connect with an audience. George frequently would perch on the edge of his chair and talkasfastaspossible, which didn't help matters with the old-school hockey fans.
As you say, he is a very talented interviewer, and it's good to see him back in his comfort zone, and without the shiny suit, skinny pants, and over-caffeination!

He's good with hockey when he's in a more relaxed setting doing HIS thing.



As a recovering hockey fan, those clips suffer from bad editing.  The guy really does his homework. I think he's one of the best interviewers out there, but you gotta let the guy do his job.

Not that it's a bad thing I guess. I just think they would want to go out in a more musical way.

I believe when they played losing it, Rush meant it. Hope they enjoy 'making more memories' with the time they/we have.
