Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee of Rush discuss the music that is closest to their hearts.
“(I CAN’T GET NO) SATISFACTION” The Rolling Stones, Hot Rocks, 1964–1971 (1972)
This was the second single I bought. One summer when I was 12, I went to Yugoslavia to visit my relatives. I took one record with me — this one. I played it for my relatives because I wanted my cousins to hear it.
The Stones had that bluesy, dirty, bad-boy image, which I much preferred to cleaner-sounding bands like the Beatles or the Searchers. The Stones were more dangerous than other bands of the Sixties. It looked like they had more fun than the Beatles — like they stayed up later.”
