“Not really. It’s been difficult. After Neil passed in January, I’ve played very little guitar. I don’t feel inspired and motivated. It was the same thing when [Neil’s] daughter died in a car accident in 1997.
“I didn’t really play for about a year. And I just don’t feel it in my heart right now. Every time I pick up a guitar, I just aimlessly kind of mess around with it and put it down after 10 minutes. Normally, I would pick up a guitar and I would play for a couple of hours without even being aware that I’m spending that much time.
“So I know it’ll come back. And I think Geddy working on his book for those couple of years, he was so involved in that book – which is, by the way, a fabulous book – when he finished it, he went on a tour for a year promoting it.
“Every time I spoke to him about getting back together, he was, like, ‘Yeah, when I get through this, when I get through this.’ And then always something comes up, I guess.
“I don’t know if the motivation is there for us to really do anything now. We’re certainly proud of our track record, and we still love music. But it’s different now.”
