Did everyone watch the new video of Ged and Al with Rolling Stone?  This time they were more forthcoming with the truth about what's going on.  Clearly, they want to record and tour.  Clearly, Neil is resistant and possibly ready to retire.  So, I dare ask the question and let the daggers fly.

Any chance they would continue with a new drummer?  If they want to continue, why let one person sink the ship?  You could see in the interview how frustrated Geddy is with Neil.  Surely there's lots of banter behind the scenes, or complete radio silence.

I'll say this, they gave up their careers for Neil and waited 4 years for him to grieve, and that was the right thing to do.  The least he could do in return would be to give them another record and a proper farewell tour.  I'd venture to say he's selfish and doesn't care how they feel or what they want, or the fans.
After 40 years of playing he owes no one anything. If he wants to retire he should. The fans? The fans got his best for 40 years! 3 hour shows!
Are you trolling, bro?

Think what you want.  If you think it's over, you can stay home when we all attend the next tour that may or may not include Neil on the throne.

If Neil isn't playing it ISN'T RUSH!  If Geddy isn't playing it ISN'T RUSH, if Alex isn't playing IT ISN'T RUSH!   What don't you get?

Rush is the three guys that have been Rush for the past 41 years...if one, or two of the band decides to go out on tour it WILL NOT BE RUSH!  It will be the Alex Lifeson Band, or the Geddy Lee Band!  BUT IT WILL NOT BE RUSH!!

If the three guys decide that they want to have another go at it, then it WILL BE RUSH....but at the moment for all intents and purposes, the band as a physical playing entity is NO MORE!

Think what you want.  I will think what I want.  So, what's the name of that band that Mick Jaggar now tours with?  Do they have the right to be called the Rolling Stones?  When Ozzy, Geezer, and Tony toured with a different drummer last year, what was the name of their band??  Oh yes, it was Black Sabbath.  Hmmm.....looks like you need an attitude adjustment.

What about Yes?  Don't forget Yes!  They've been touring as that band with 99 different guys over the years....

Sorry dude.... Alex and Geddy with Mike Portnoy will not be RUSH!   Alex and Neil with John Myung will NOT BE RUSH!  Geddy and Neil with Joe Satriani will NOT BE RUSH!  I don't need an attitude adjustment, you need a reality check!  This is an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SITUATION!  IT WILL NOT BE RUSH WITHOUT ALL THREE GUYS IN THE BAND!

Whatever.  You can have a nice day and Thanksgiving knowing you are right and the rest of us are wrong.  Ged and Al can do what they want without needing permission from you.  If they want to tour with another drummer and call it Rush, stay home in protest because it's not Rush and we'll all have a great time without you.

Dude...what don't you get... they WILL NOT CALL IT RUSH!  I'm not saying that they'll never tour together, or never do solo stuff..but they will not call it Rush!    You're delusional if you think they will!


Rush is THREE PEOPLE and THREE PEOPLE alone!  If Rutsey were still alive, then MAYBE they'd call it Rush...but Alex, Geddy and another drummer will not be Rush! It will be under a different name!

I'm inclined to agree with Jaminbenb, if they tour without Neil they're going to be a completely new band.

"I don't think Neil has to consider a damn bit how the fans feel. He's got every right to quit if he wants, and spend all of his time with his family. He doesn't owe anybody anything. "

This exactly !
