Interview in Classic Rock. Reading between the lines, Lee, and presumably Lifeson, didn’t initially comprehend Peart’s decision to retire - “I started to understand”. Interesting that he mentions that “since then” they’ve remained friends which suggests there was some friction in the initial decision.

The article goes on to say:

 

Neil's decision was also based on the fact that, apparently, he was the only one who could hear what was coming from the vocal monitors during "Lakeside Park" on the final tour

 

Yeeeeouch!

It's on issuu, which I find hard to read; I'm going to buy the magazine! (I have to keep hitting the + button too many times! :LOL:) But here is the link, the interview is on Page 36.

Hey, it wasn’t great, but my dad and I sure didn’t care at the time. CTTH is the only really embarrassing vocal from that tour.

So he's saying there's a chance....

It's interesting to YOU, because you're still obsessed with blaming Neil Peart for everything and calling him a selfish prick. :boo hiss: :boo hiss:

Am I missing something? I don’t get it.

Indeed, Ged's voice unlistenable to at times at the end, wouldn't be surprising if this prime influencer in Neil's decision

You're welcome! :hi: Jag2112 also put up another link where the article is transcribed; it might be a little easier to read??

Neither do I.

 

Sadly, though, certain people here have a pathological need to hate Neil Peart. They are the selfish ones.

Ok, the paper asked the question and Lee chose to reply. That suggests that there is interest, does it not?

Read the quotes, the choice of words are interesting and important.

He states that over time he started to understand that Peart’s decision to retire was the right decision for him. Since then (presumably when he came to understand) they have remained good friends.
