Speaking to Ultimate Classic Rock, Rush singer Geddy Lee has revealed his future plans without Rush.
He said that ‘I don’t know what’s next for me, and I’m enjoying that’, and continued:
“My life has been scheduled for the last 42 or so years, and I think I owe it to my family – and I owe it to myself – just to be a human being and allow things to happen, rather than to be so strategic in planning out my moves, if you know what I mean.
I did that for so many years that I’m enjoying being bored occasionally. And out of boredom comes productivity, I believe.
This book was a massive undertaking for me. I have another couple of projects that are different from music projects that I’m working on, but I hope to get back into my home studio and see if I have something to say again.”
On his playing style for bass guitar, he said:
“Well, one thing you do learn over time – and especially playing so many different instruments – is that your sound comes from here in your fingertips. *makes a gesture with his hands, like playing bass*
You know, you can put Jaco Pastorius’ bass in your hands and you can make a couple of notes that sort of sound like Jaco, but the longer you play it, the less you will sound like Jaco. Only Jaco sounds like Jaco, and [with] most great players, the same thing is true.
And that’s a transportable thing because it’s your personality coming out with the instrument in your hands. So that’s something that’s been reinforced by this collection for me.”
