It could be speculation. It could be rumor. It could be nothing at all...

I guess we'll know when we know...

.....and thus, it begins.  Insofar as Neil is no more than one year away from the "Dad, you're embarrassing me" phase of his daughter's life,
I'll renew my bet that we are no more than 2 years away from the next Rush album.

Nothing new here. This is all stuff that's been discussed since it became widely accepted that R40 was it for them. Just because Trunk said something about it doesn't mean a thing.

If she knew better, she'd have been that way out of the womb.

I think they should just go for it. They shouldn't let Neil drag them down. If it's true that Ged has more gas in the tank and Alex's arthritis is getting a little better, by all means they should do something together!

Screw that. They should get a younger unknown drummer who will bring a youthful energy to the project. Some new blood with serious chops would no doubt help Geddy and Alex to keep their game sharp.

Yes, but PLEASE not a "flaunt my chops" kind of drummer. Someone with TASTE and chops.

I don't think they would want to work with anyone who is just there to be a show off and nothing more. They would certainly get someone who brought more to the table than that.

I'm surprised Trunk didn't suggest Bobby Blotzer should join them on drums.

They should watch the Rush cover bands on YouTube and offer the best one a job. The only problem is Alex and Geddy will have to start writing lyrics.

What's Gavin up to these days? He's a drummer most Rush fans could easily accept.

Certainly worth a try. Judas Priest found their replacement for Halford back in the 90s when they saw Tim Owens singing for a Priest tribute band. Not sure they would have to worry about who writes the lyrics. I think an all instrumental thing would be great.
