Text Quotes
I enjoyed art in school. I’ve always done little drawings and stuff like that. I don’t really know what I’m doing with the painting, but I experiment.  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) I’m not that fluid when it comes to scales and modes. I just pick up the guitar and play. It’s all about exploration: just tune the guitar any way you want and start playing.  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) When I sit down and play guitar, I melt into the instrument. I can play for hours by myself. Playing guitar has given me such a wonderful life, and I’m grateful for it.  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) Bryan Adams might not be what I want to put on, but he’s a pop singer with a great voice and great guitar tone. Plus, he’s done more for Canada than Rush have, because he works all the time. I envy him for that.  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) It used to be that you made an album and then you went on the road to promote that album, hoping for good record sales. Well, good record sales basically don’t exist any more, and the emphasis has been more on the live show.  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) People are getting away from the whole album experience, it’s true. I think that’s sad. Maybe I’m just saying that because I’m an old fart. But I can’t help it - albums are what I grew up with, and I still love them.  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) It’s a wonderful thing to be able to see your music going from generation to generation  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) My parents got me a $25 Kent steel-string acoustic guitar when I was around 12. The following Christmas, my parents bought me a Conora electric guitar. It looked almost like a Gretsch. It cost $59, and my mom still has it.  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) The thing is, I don’t take anything for granted anymore - my family, my music, you name it  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) The more I got into playing guitar, the more I enjoyed music, and the broader my listening became. The instrument itself became important to me, and I started messing around with classical guitar and took classical lessons.  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) Of any guitarist, Jimmy Page was my biggest influence. I wanted to look, think and play like him. Zeppelin had a heavy influence on Rush during our early days. Page’s loose style of playing showed an immense confidence, and there are no rules to his playing.  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) Everybody has terrible things that they deal with. Everybody. Just because you’re some big shot rock star doesn’t mean you’re immune to having these awful tragedies in your life.  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) 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.  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) In September 1968, Rush played for around 20 people at a small hall in a church basement. We played songs like ‘Spoonful,’ ‘Fire’ and ‘Born Under a Bad Sign,’ and got paid $10. Then we went to a nearby deli and ordered Cokes and French fries and started planning our future.  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) The shock of any trauma, I think changes your life. It’s more acute in the beginning and after a little time you settle back to what you were. However it leaves an indelible mark on your psyche.  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) At the same time, I’ve never been afraid of death or the concept of death  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) You know, we have a long history of covering different periods of this band’s development with a live record... A sort of live thing that would be done for three or four records, and that was the intention with this particular package  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) When we signed our deal in 1974, we’d already been together for six years. When they lowered the drinking age in Ontario in 1971 to 18 years, we went from playing two or three high schools in a month to playing clubs two or three times a week  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) Rush has never been a spontaneous group. We may be spontaneous in our writing, we may be spontaneous as individuals in our day to day lives... Certainly I think am and always have been, but I think when it comes to Rush and our presentation of our music it’s quite controlled  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) I think that’s given inspiration to other musicians. I know, particularly through the 90s, a lot of bands would cite Rush as an influence. I don’t think it was so much our music, but more the way we really stuck to our guns  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) Certainly after the tragedy in Neil’s life, we were holding out hope for his recovery. It wasn’t too promising at the time and obviously you get to the point of thinking that that is it  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) But when Neil called, I have to say that my heart soared. And the reason was, because it said so much about his recovery... That he was coming back to the world of the living  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) And on top of that, when we work together we have a wonderful working relationship we push each other we challenge each other we laugh 80% of the time that we are together we’re very fortunate  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) I really consider myself more of a rhythm guitarist than a soloist  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) The shock of any trauma, I think changes your life. It’s more acute in the beginning and after a little time you settle back to what you were. However it leaves an indelible mark on your psyche  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) I think we’re quite unique in that we do have our own sound and approach and we don’t really care what’s going on elsewhere... We’ve never wanted to be part of another trend or movement  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) I’m not that fluid when it comes to scales and modes. I just pick up the guitar and play. It’s all about exploration: just tune the guitar any way you want and start playing  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) When I look out at the audience at some of our shows, I think we are reaching a younger audience... I see lots of people in their 30s and 40s, but I also see a lot of people in their young and middle teens, and thats definitely reassuring  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) If there was any one achievement, it would be that we’ve have done it on our own terms  (Alex Lifeson Quotes) At the same time, I’ve never been afraid of death or the concept of death  (Alex Lifeson Quotes)
