Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee of Rush discuss the music that is closest to their hearts.
“HOW MANY MORE TIMES” Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin (1969)
Of any guitarist, Jimmy Page was my biggest influence. I wanted to look, think and play like him. Zeppelin had a heavy influence on Rush during our early days. Page’s loose style of playing showed an immense confidence, and there are no rules to his playing.
I met Page at a Page/Plant concert in Toronto in 1998. I was acting like a kid, all googly eyed. I was freaking out and my hands were shaking. I was so thrilled to meet him because his work meant so much to me.
