Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee of Rush discuss the music that is closest to their hearts.
“MY GENERATION” The Who, Live at Leeds (1970)
What an amazing guitar sound on this album! And [Pete] Townshend even plays a few solos, which he usually never does. Was there anybody better at expressing themselves through power chords?
I just loved that record, and I know Alex did, too. Every time we jammed as a young band we would wind up jamming parts of that record.
