Alex Lifeson is a pioneer, as one third of Canadian rockers Rush, he has been at the forefront of experimental rock guitar since the late '60s. With over 40 million records sold worldwide and 24 Gold discs, Rush have been at the top of the game for over 40 years. As a player Lifeson is known for his complex musicality and use of alternate tunings, harnessing effects in a way that only he can, he forms a formidable pairing with bass player Geddy Lee. They produce a sound so vast and textured between them it's hard to believe Rush are a 3 piece.
