Some bands are known for jamming and improvising during their concerts. Rush is not one of those bands, and Alex Lifeson explained why in a recent interview.
He said “traditionally we always tried to recreate what our albums were” – especially as “we became more complicated in our arrangements and our music”.
He says “that was the nature of the way we worked. We were very anal about being pretty accurate in whatever we did”.
Lifeson is getting ready to release a record with his new band, Envy of None.
