Geddy Lee, the lead vocalist, and bassist of the Canadian rock band Rush, has given an update about his state of health so as to end the rumors that he passed away, which was trended on Twitter lately.
The rumors that the iconic frontman Geddy Lee died showed up months after the band’s drummer and primary lyricist, Neil Peart‘s death news. Some of the fans, who have been worried if they are facing another death from the band since Lee has remained silent for a while, argued on Twitter about him.
As you know, On December 7, 2015, Peart announced his retirement from music though his bandmate Geddy Lee insisted and said Peart was simply taking a break. In January 2018, the guitarist Alex Lifeson confirmed that Rush was retiring due to Peart’s health issues.
During his last years, Neil Peart lived in Santa Monica, California with his wife, Carrie Nuttall, and daughter. After a three and a half year illness, he died of glioblastoma, which is a kind of brain cancer, on January 7, 2020, at age 67.
About the rumors that were emerged eight months after the sorrowful loss, Lee said with a sense of humor that he asked his dogs and apparently he’s a bit boring but otherwise completely fine.
Here is what was said in the announcement made by Rush’s official Twitter account:
“‘Even I gulped when I saw I was trending on Twitter, but I asked my dogs and apparently I’m a bit boring but otherwise fine…’ – Geddy Lee”
