Alex Lifeson Interview in Guitar Connoisseur Magazine Hints at Possible New Solo Project
Is Alex ready to record and produce the follow-up to his 1996 solo album Victor? According to a new interview that was just posted by Guitar Connoisseur Magazine, it's a possibility.
From the interview:... What I enjoyed most about making [Victor] was the variety of the material. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to explore and expand on certain genres of music that were not necessarily open to me within the context of Rush. The workload was relentless, and I seemed to be working on that album every day for a year, but it was enormously satisfying for me as a songwriter, producer, and musician. I don't have the same drive to jump into a project like Victor at the moment, but I do have hours of material that does inspire me to at least consider such a thing...Currently, the interview is only accessible via the magazine's Apple News Feed at this link via the Apple News App. If anyone has the ability of exporting the entire interview, please contact me.
In addition to his work on Victor, Alex also discusses his work on Clockwork Angels, particularly his solo on The Garden, his various signature guitars, his early influences, and more.
