Geddy Lee Addresses Rush's Final Tour Speculation

Rush frontman Geddy Lee discussed the band's upcoming tour and elaborated on the speculation that it would be the band's final "big tour" during his appearance on the season premiere of VH1′s That Metal Show this weekend. "It's very hard to answer that question for a lot of reasons," Lee responded when asked the tour would be a farewell trek. "First of all, you know, the three guys in this band have very different opinions on this point in our lives. Everybody's in a very different space right now. "We've done a lot of touring for the last 10 years, a lot of writing, a lot of working. (Drummer) Neil (Peart), for example, has a young child at home and he's said publicly, numerous times, that it's very hard for him to leave his daughter. She needs him. it's clear that we are at a point in our career that we have to slow down - and slow down dramatically. So, I'm not a guy who's in love with the farewell tour idea, but it's clear that this is going to be the last big tour that we're going to do for a while, anyway. I can say that." He also talked about what he sees in the future for Rush. "In terms of 'are we still a band?,' yeah, of course we're still a band. Do we talk about writing? Yes, we talk about writing. Will we do gigs in the future? I don't see why not. But, when you are talking about a tour that's 35 shows, 40 shows, 50 shows at our age at this point in our lives, I don't know how many of those are still left in us."

Def Leppard Will Reject Rock Hall Induction

Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott says in a new interview that band has decided that if were ever invited to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame that they would 'politely refuse' the induction. But he adds that the fans will have the final say. Elliott says that the Rock Hall is "nice but not that important" and explained why it isn't that important to him or the band, "The biggest compliment I ever got was my first ... platinum disc because it's a representation of 1 million people who've bought your album, and those million mean a lot more to me than some people that decide whether you fit for the Hall of Fame." "In fact, we've kind of all decided that even if we get asked we're just going to -- how can I put this? -- politely refuse, like the Sex Pistols did. Unless there was some sort of online campaign by our fans cause they were annoyed with us.
