Lee feels that Peart’s comments about retirement have been misconstrued and sensationalised. “That’s how it goes in the media,” he says. “Talking about something when there’s nothing to talk about.” He is adamant that Peart, and Rush, will carry on. But for how long, he cannot say. The wear and tear of age is also telling on Lifeson, who has arthritis.

He hasn’t retired yet but it’s sad to hear about our musical heroes getting old. If anyone deserves a bit of peace and quiet it’s Neil.

As many Progzilla Radio listeners will already know, today sadly we lost our friend, broadcasting colleague and Prog Rock champion Geoff Banks, who died following a short illness.

Terribly sad news. I never met Geoff but I got know him through his always entertaining podcasts and his tireless promotion of live rock and prog music. He will be hugely missed.
