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.
“MY GENERATION” The Who, The Who Sings My Generation (1965)
Pete Townshend is one of my greatest influences. More than any other guitarist, he taught me how to play rhythm guitar and demonstrated its importance, particularly in a three-piece band.
His chording and strumming always took up the right amount of space. The first time I heard this song was in the basement of Rush’s original drummer, John Rutsey. John had two older brothers, both of whom were music fiends, and they always had whatever new album had just come out.
