Alex Lifeson talks about Juno honour, upcoming tour -

Today Canada's Canoe posted an all new interview with Alex Lifeson where he talks about Rush's upcoming 2015 Allan Waters Humanitarian Award at this year's Juno awards (which will be accepted in person by Geddy Lee), and how he is preparing for the upcoming tour.
“I learned very early that it feels really good to help somebody else. A lot of times it feels better than getting help yourself and now that we’re in a position to do something and have been for awhile, it only makes sense. It’s a duty, really, that we all have to help the less fortunate.”
“It’s a wonderful thing to get this kind of recognition. We’ve been very lucky, particularly over the last many years that there’s been all this attention paid to us. And it’s lovely and it’s very much appreciated but it’s not the most important thing. But we happily accept these sorts of things but we don’t try to make a really big deal. You know, it’s a typical Canadian attitude, trying to stay under the radar, and do the thing that we do, and then complain as much as we can.”
 Of the tour, Alex said:
“We’re prepping for the tour; we’re at that stage where we’ve just started playing. You don’t want to hear us.  We’re nuts.  We rehearse for six weeks before the rehearsals. I’m serious. I’ve been rehearsing for three weeks now. I spend four hours, three times a week, and then the rest of the time I play for an hour to two hours. And that’s just to get ready for rehearsals.”
