Geddy Lee admitted that Rush don’t have any unreleased songs “worth a damn” in a new interview with the bassist published in Canada’s National Post.
Lee said: “There’s actually not much in the vaults. We were a band that used what we wrote and if we didn’t like what we were writing, we stopped writing it. So there are really no unreleased Rush songs that were worth a damn. Recording our songs was so difficult and ambitious that we didn’t do extra stuff and pick the best.”
The legendary bassist commented on the relationship between the three Rush members: “I think we had camaraderie for so many years – we really were very close friends. Alex and I still are. I think that struck home with a lot of fans. People like to see long marriages and long relationships, people who work together without acrimony.”
Lee added: “It’s interesting, I recently re-released my album (2000’s solo My Favorite Headache) on vinyl and that forced me to listen to it again. I’m very proud of it – it’s a very intricate record, a deep record, and a lot of love and passion went into it. It did get me thinking that one day I’d like to take that on the road, so you never know. But I have no firm plans to do anything right now. It’s not a time when one can plan much, so only time will tell if that comes to fruition.”
