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.
“THICK AS A BRICK” Jethro Tull, Thick As a Brick (1972)
In my view, this is the first truly successful concept album by a British prog-rock band. They even brought a flute into heavy rock music. How dare they! [laughs]
Their music is so brilliantly written and well put together, what with its hard-to-play parts and odd time signatures, not to mention the great guitar sounds of the totally underrated Martin Barre.
And I love how, no matter what influences they brought into the music, from classical to folk, they always did it in a rock context.
