Geddy Lee isn't ruling out creating new music with Alex Lifeson. When pressed as to whether the pair would be teaming up with each other now that Rush drummer Neil Peart has officially retired from music, Geddy — who's been swamped promoting his critically acclaimed tome Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book Of Bass — told The Toronto Sun, “I don’t really know. Alex is turning into this super session guy. He loves playing on other people’s records without the responsibilities of having to write anything other than his solo. I know he’s really digging that. I’ve been doing this project, but we talk, quite a lot. We see each other quite a lot. And we visit with Neil quite often. So we’re all close but I don’t think we would ever do a project — the three of us. It’s certainly possible that Alex and I would do something down the road. I can’t see the three of us ever really doing anything.”

Geddy Lee said he's still laying down musical ideas at home: “I try to go down at least once or twice a week to my (home) studio and get to know these instruments a bit more and put some ideas down, but I don’t know what will come of them, if anything. Time will tell. They’re going to keep me busy (with the book tour in other parts of the world) until next Christmas and then I’ll be free as bird and probably next spring I’ll start looking at some serious musical ideas.”

Rush played its last show to date on August 1st, 2015 at The Forum in Inglewood, California. When asked if he missed heading out on the road with Rush, Geddy admitted, “I don’t miss leaving (my family). But I miss those three hours on stage with my buddies. That, especially in the last 10 years of touring, was so much fun and so gratifying.”

Despite all the years he's clocked in writing, recording, and touring, Geddy Lee finds himself still learning new things about the business all the time: “It's awfully naive to think that you've learned everything. You're always learning. There's always something else to learn. There's always something to improve. It's not unlike any other aspect of your life, y'know, any other endeavor. Nobody's finished as an artist, y'know, at a certain age, (when) you go, 'Well, that's it. I now know everything, and I'm a complete artist.'”

Geddy Lee will be signing copies of Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book of Bass today (May 23rd) in Vancouver at Indigo – Metrotown
