Geddy also photographed in a guy's Uber who also delivers pizza and plays in a Dream Theater cover band. Mike Portnoy is really slumming these days. Rumor ensues.

  F*** Portnoy..

But I can see it happening. Perhaps that's just desperation - hoping that Ged and Al do /something/ more together before it's too late.

As long as Geddy and Alex are in it, it’s Rush. Drums are just drums and no one ever got into Rush for the lyrics.
After not listening to Rush for awhile, when I started to again, that's what I noticed the most - the awful lyrics on so many songs. Good thing I was never one for lyrics anyway.

I got a good laugh out of that one.

Not the case - they've both said "No Neil, no Rush." It's all 3 or nothing.

They don't mean it. They hate him. They always have.


At least it's only Geddy, Al seems busy trying to break into MLB

нет, what made Rush is what the three brought to the table. Which includes much of Peart’s lyrics. Something to ponder not just about picking up and f***ing chicks.

I'm going to put Dave as Lifeson-Lee/Rush's new drummer in the "most likely" column.

Hardly, Grohl isn’t good enough for their kind of music and he’s busy doing other stuff.

I know that's what attracted many to Rush. but I never listened to music for intellectual stimuli.

That, among other things, is why I did so poorly when it came time for you to pick and choose TrueRushFans™

I could see Dave Grohl being interested. He worked with John Paul Jones in Them Crooked Vultures so might be looking to put another tick in the "look who I`ve made a record with" column.  And - I for one probably would miss Neil`s contribution - he can throw some lyrics together without physically straining himself.

Below interviewer Alan Cross attempted to get the question out of Geddy (beginning at the 2:05 mark) of why Dave Grohl was with him and was vague in his answer.

It's hard to tell if Dave has the technical expertise but he definitely has the sheer power.

Same with me. I’m a music person. Not a lyric person. I’ve listened to some Rush music for many years, singing along to every word, and never realized what the song was about. One example is Red Sector A. I bet I listened to that for over 20 years before I realized what the song was about.

Some lyrics are more profound than others. Some are simply amazing. But awful lyrics on a Rush song? Even the '74-'75 stuff is at least FUN, but never awful. For me the comparison is the huge majority of popular trash - plastic bubblegum.
