Rush Canadian Golden Ale weighs in at 5.5 % ABV, and the can options the Starman paintings from the vintage album 2112, together with the tagline “Books are for vacationers.” However in a brand new interview with Vintage Rock, Lee printed the ones phrases are not those they sought after to be inscribed above the graphic.
“Rush lovers like beer,” he stated. “Hendersons approached us all the way through the pandemic and stated, ‘For those who’re , then we’ll ship 15 beers to you and Alex. You’ll style them and provides us your notes.’ They got here again with this golden ale, and we stated, ‘Fuck, we find it irresistible!’ … Do you know the word ‘Consuming beer is healthier than being hit within the head with a hammer’ can’t be placed on a lager can? Me neither. However that’s a no-no. We did ask.”
In the similar interview, Lee mirrored that “Rush 2.0,” which took place after a five-year hiatus following the loss of life of drummer Neil Peart’s daughter in 1997, used to be a “other animal” from the sooner model of the trio. “That first excursion again as a band, other global,” he recalled. “We took a distinct perspective on that excursion; we have been a lot more open and appreciative of the chance. 5 years clear of it took numerous cynicism out of our conduct. Once we did our first gig in the end the ones years and have been welcomed again so strongly, I believe everybody used to be shocked: ‘Wow, those folks waited for us.’”
Lee stated the general 11 years of the band’s profession – which ended in 2018 with the retirement and later the loss of life of Peart – have been a few of the most delightful. “Snakes & Arrows and Clockwork Angels have been almost definitely the 2 maximum pleasant recording stories we’d ever had,” he famous. “It used to be the happiest duration for the band since Everlasting Waves [in 1980].”
Specializing in 2011’s Clockwork Angels, which became out to be Rush’s final album, Lee stated, “Al and I have been simply speaking about this the opposite night time, how, from a non-public chemistry writing vibe, it used to be the happiest collaboration we’d had since we have been children. From a songwriter’s viewpoint, it’s one of the most achieved piece of labor we did in our complete historical past.”
