Alex Lifeson from Rush is featured on the latest episode of Gibson TV's series "My First Gibson."
He says, “I wanted to play guitar because I just thought it was such a cool instrument, I thought it sounded really cool. You know, when I listened to music that had guitar music in it, particularly like The Beach Boys in that period, in the mid-’60s, it was just the driving force of the music and it just kinda spoke to me I think.”
He was 12-years-old when he got his first guitar, and as they say, the rest is history!
