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.
“3/5 OF A MILE IN TEN SECONDS” Jefferson Airplane, Bless Its Pointed Little Head (1969)
A great live record, where the band takes some risks and really changes the arrangements, especially rhythmically. Jack Casady, one of the truly great, underrated bass players, is the star of this record.
His tone was very different from other American bassists; it was edgier, and his riffs were really challenging — they aggressively pushed the songs along. I like when a bass player gets a little pushy and won’t keep his place. He steps out of line, but in a great way.”
