Rush's Alex Lifeson May Kill Neil Peart... With Laughter

06/01/2011
.
(Rock News Desk) Rush drummer Neil Peart says the bonus-feature dinner filmed for the band's Beyond the Lighted Stage DVD takes place every night before they play and he's worried guitarist Alex Lifeson will choke him to death one evening. But he's never watched the acclaimed movie, and never will, because he doesn't want to relive some of the subjects discussed.

Peart's life disintegrated in 1997 when his daughter died in a car accident, then his wife died of cancer just ten months later. He took time off before deciding to continue with his musical career but he has no desire to watch as the episode is discussed in the movie.

The bonus footage shows Lifeson joking with bandmates Peart and Geddy Lee, with the drummer frequently unable to stop laughing. And he says that's a regular occurrence. "I was dying from laughter at Alex," he recalls. "We keep saying he's going to kill me. I'll choke to death. It happens now: we always have dinner together before the show, then he'll say something and soon I'm choking to death." more on this story
