60 Minutes with Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee of Rush
Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee of Rush discuss the music that is closest to their hearts.
“FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH” Buffalo Springfield, Buffalo Springfield (1966)
This was the first rock song that had a big influence on me. I remember hearing it on the radio in my dad’s car when I was a kid. Buffalo Springfield were unlike the other bands of the ‘San Francisco sound’; they were more country sounding. Stephen Stills and Neil Young trade leads on this one.
I like Young’s very fast vibrato and edgy, truncated playing style, particularly on his soloing, whereas Stills’ sound is sweeter and smoother. This is still one of my all-time favorite songs. In fact, Rush did a version of it on our covers tribute EP, Feedback.
