Alex Lifeson guitar tech Scott Appleton video tour of Alex's rig
9:31PM EST | comments (29) |

Alex Lifeson used Mesa Engineering's Mesa Boogie Mark V amplifiers on Rush's Clockwork Angels tour. Mesa recently caught up with Lifeson's guitar tech Scott Appleton backstage where he gives a video tour of Alex's amps and effects, explaining how they no longer need to use acoustic guitars or live guitar cabinets on stage. You can watch the video tour below or at this location (thanks Eric at Power Windows):

#24 - That's how it was in the days prior to Moving Pictures, particularly over here in the UK when there weren't all that many large venues at that time.

Seeing them in 1978 at the Liverpool Empire, built in Victorian times - chandeliers, ornate plaster work, plush velvet and gold paint, and an intimate small crowd all emmersed in a fragrant cloud was just the absolute best.

I remember it like it was yesterday.

My dream is not to, say, seeing Rush in the Hall of Fame but...playing live, say LIVE, in a indoor small theater with just the basic of the equipmeht. Direct sound, the 3 of them and that's it !
That would be magnificent and highlight their great musicianship !
Yep, I know, just a dream...:-)...
