Alex played on three tracks of Minnemann*s last album.
On That Note is a 9 minute psychedelic ride where Alex shows, how smoking pot, is a creative way to lay down some cool guitar parts. He's also playing acoustic and FX guitars, on the 6 minute remix version.
South End is four minutes long and a little bit more straight forward, but still very spacy. Alex has some fantastic moments in this song.
Wow, I listened to these Minnemann/Lifeson tracks. That is some weird S***!...  I hope this new project is a bit more mainstream. In fact, Let Alex write the songs and Marco can add his drums later...

Usually it's the other way around. On the Levin Minneman Rudess album, he wrote all the riffs.

It's cool that Alex is doing something. Got no clue who the other guy is though.

He's played with Steven Wilson, Joe Satriani, The Aristocrats (with Guthrie Govan), many others. He's a monster drummer.

Rush fans might like some of The Aristocrats tracks written by Marco - Ohhhh Noooo, stupid 7, etc

Looks like Rush found its new drummer, now they only need a singer.  :P

Is Susan Boyle available?

A lot of appearances Al made on other people's stuff is all fine and dandy, i listen with eagerness like most of you just for his parts mainly but, a lot of the time it just sounds like a very good and cool rock guitarist - without the 'Alex Lifeson of Rush' effect, if you know what i mean.

Like, in Victor, obviously there were many, very definite Lifeson Rush moments, you knew who it was, playing.. it was Alex Lifeson, the guitarist of Rush, singularly unique in himself, no-one like him, the reason we all pay homage to the guy, like he's a demi-god or something

Point is, great, anything Al does at this stage of his life and career obviously cool, bring it on, can't wait to hear it like everybody else but...

I really want the Alex Lifeson of Rush back

Give us another solo album dude, pleaseee  :)

There is really no need to be mainstream anymore. It's not Rush so there won't be any expectations. Have to admit I never saw this coming but it really makes total sense.

I've seen Oink live when he brought him to the Aristocrats show.

I had heard of Marco, but didn't know much about him.  Checked him out... wicked drummer, right up there with Thomas Lang, Portnoy, Mangini, Gavin Harrison... he also plays guitar, bass, keys... and sings.  Album should be good with Alex on it.

Just to throw this out as a total tangent (yet tangentially related):

Drummers today are so f***ing amazing it’s hard to imagine how much technically better they can become. Metal drummers, even though I generally don’t care for most of the genre, are f***ing octopus’ on speed. Them, jazz drummers...Everyone has independent limbs playing multiple polyrhythms.  

But...they all kinda sound the same to me. That’s what set Neil apart is that he didn’t sound like most other drummers especially pre-T4E...when he tried to become less compositional did he start to drift toward sounding like your everyday drummer octopus.

Cary on.
