CHARTattack’s Kate Harper sat down with Rush’s Alex Lifeson last December at the annual Andy Kim Christmas Show in Toronto to talk about his favorite Rush songs, being able to tour the world, and plans to follow-up 2007’s ‘Snakes & Arrows’. “We’re planning on taking a year off,” Lifeson said. “I don’t think we’ll do anything until fall of  at the earliest. We were exhausted I have to admit. We did a lot of shows, and the shows were over three hours long. We crammed in a lot on this last run this summer. We all need to take a little bit of a break from it. I think it would do us some good to just sort of step back and not think about music and not think the band and come back fresh after a nice break.” Watch the interview below.
