Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee of Rush Choose 22 Songs That Inspired Them Most
Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee of Rush discuss the music that is closest to their hearts.
“KASHMIR” Led Zeppelin, Physical Graffiti (1975)
This is an absolutely brilliant song, an all-time classic. ‘Kashmir’ has such a wonderful, exotic Middle Eastern feel to it — it’s like no other song of its era — and Physical Graffiti is a mind-blowing album.
In a roundabout way, ‘Kashmir’ influenced ‘A Passage to Bangkok’ , which has a similar sort of odd-tempo arrangement to the verses.
