I'm not so certain about the "Lee-Lifeson" name either.  Elsewhere I wrote that those not familiar with Rush will be asking, "Which one is Lee Lifeson?  And who's the other guy?"

I thought maybe a combo of their real last names:  ZivoRib.  Is that TOTALLY awesome or what?  Well, I suppose it is "Or what".

Maybe WeinOvich?  Geddy is into wine now and Alex is Alex.  That doesn't make a lot of sense either.  I'm also still liking the idea of them going with Rash.

And yes, it would be cool to hear some "My Favorite Headache" songs performed live.  Some "Victor" stuff, too.

Those not familiar with Rush won't know Lee from Lifeson but you're busting out with "ZivoRib" and "WeinOvich"?!
:poke: ;) :lol:

Besides, Coverdale/Page.

Additionally, I can see them naming the project after something unguessable, like one of Geddy's cocker spaniels or something.

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.

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

I love ACCEPT.

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

"Neil doesn't even have drums in the house anymore".

I suppose he's never done anything by half, why would retirement be any different?...

"Half The World" is a shitty song too.

I'd be down for this if they got the right drummer. Ideally someone with the chops to handle the Rush stuff but who also isn't a Neil clone and can bring something different to the material.

I suspect there are plenty of drummers who fit both requirements.

Not to be the turd in the punch bowl but is everyone forgetting that Geddy can't sing well anymore and his voice is shot?

They could be called "Peerless" - which describes them well, and also sounds a bit like "Peart-less"...

I think you're forgetting that your opinion on Geddy's voice is just that - an opinion.

...and maybe they could get a younger bassist, guitarist and singer, just imagine how much energy they'd have then.

Well presumably this new band wouldn't be doing any Rush material, so hopefully Geddy would write melodies to new songs that he could actually sing.

I was going to thread this but it's really not worth starting a thread over it.   I know Geddy has been struggling vocally over the years.  I have always looked past that when attending my Rush concerts.

That being said, I put on the "Clockwork Angels" Live  on in my car the other day and I couldn't handle Geddy's voice.  It was truly dreadful.

I hope they don't write and lyrics for this new fantasy project.  Let's hope it's an instrumental band.  Ged can focus on his bass, keys, and bass pedals.

Well if you don't have a lyricist, why worry about vocals?
