TORONTO — Alex Lifeson says he’s downplaying his holdings in hopes it helps close a chapter from his past with Rush.

It’s been nearly five years since the rock band hung up their instruments as the late drummer Neil Burt struggled with health issues, and the Toronto guitarist says he sometimes found himself “stuck” under their incredible legacy. Burt died of brain cancer in January 2020.

So, the 68-year-old decided to make some big changes to shed some of that weight — including selling a country house and making plans to auction 63 guitars he owns next month.

Lifeson says he’s confident that being “smaller” on memorabilia will help him look toward “things on the horizon” instead.

One of his new priorities is Envy of None, an alternative rock act he recently helped create within miles of the sound of Rush.

The four-piece band, led by singer Mayah Wayne of Portland, Oregon, released their self-titled debut album Friday.

“The Envy of None personally liberates me because it represents progression into another area, and it takes on other opportunities,” Lifeson says.

“I don’t want to be (what) someone expects. I did what I did. I’m just a man… and I love doing it. That’s all that matters to me.”
