Geddy Lee Says New Music May Sound Like Rush
The only news Geddy Lee has about his next musical project is that he still doesn't have a plan. But, he expects it will be a familiar sound to Rush fans.
“I don't know where I'm headed musically," the Canadian musician told Premier Guitar. “I'm in a position to truly clear the deck and hit the reset button, and see what I have to say musically. I need to give myself time to experiment with that and see what comes out that I feel strong enough to be a worthy thing to do next.
“I have no idea where that's going to take me."
Lee, 65, released his Big Beautiful Book of Bass last December. He said he's starting to realize that a few riffs have fallen out of those old basses – more than 250 of them – in his Toronto home.
“When I mess around at home, I'm sort of all over the map. But that's also usually how a Rush album starts," he explained. “I don't imagine that whatever I do next will be drastically different, but because I have more guitars now, I'm playing more guitar in the studio and getting ideas that way.
“Stylistically speaking, I never felt like I was missing anything in the context of Rush because anything goes in that group.”
Lee admitted he “never had any musical frustrations in Rush,” which explains why he’s comfortable with the band being done. “It was a totally fulfilling experience for me,” he said.
