During a recent interview with Biff Bam Pop, Mike Portnoy addressed the rumors that are apparently circulating online about him working with Rush’s Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee, to which he replied:
“I don’t think they ever will [play together as Rush without all three of them]; I honestly don’t think they will. I think Rush will only ever be the three of them.
“Look, I get asked this a lot, and I, of course, would work with any of them in any capacity should they ever want to. And yeah, it would be an amazing thing. I’ve never collaborated with any of them.
“Neil and I have become very good friends through the years; that’s a relationship that I’m so grateful for. And I’ve also gotten to know Alex really well. So, yeah, god, I mean, yeah, that would be amazing.
“I’ve collaborated with so many people, but I hadn’t with any of those guys, so that would be amazing. But I wouldn’t hold my breath – honestly, I really wouldn’t. But they know where to find me.”
