Geddy Lee clarifies Peart retirement rumours - Prog

In a response to yesterday's fan panic after news surfaced that Neil was "retired" following his story which appears in the new issue of Drumhead, Geddy Lee has stepped up to clarify Neil's statement:
Lee tells Prog: “There’s really nothing to say. I think Neil is just explaining his reasons for not wanting to tour, with the toll that it’s taking on his body. That’s all I would care to comment on it. We’ll get together eventually and chat about things. But in my view, there is certainly nothing surprising in what he said. Neil just feels that he has to explain with all the thousands of people asking, ‘Why no more tours?’ He needs to explain his side of it."

Asked whether he feels Peart's quote was taken out of context, Lee adds: “I think that’s absolutely right. That’s their job. Talking about something when there’s nothing to talk about.”
