Alex Lifeson visits Ishibashi Music in Tokyo
9:35PM EST | comments (23) |

Alex Lifeson at Ishibashi Music in TokyoAlex Lifeson was recently vacationing in Tokyo, Japan and stopped into Ishibashi Music for a visit, and was kind enough to allow them to videotape it for the store's YouTube channel. Alex tours the store, talks guitars, and signs both his signature series Gibson Les Paul Axcess and his Paul Reed Smith Private Stock signature series Acoustic Guitar. You can check out the video below or on YouTube at this location (thanks RushFanForever).

This is what I have read in the past, not sure if true.

There was also the incident in a hotel on that tour where they witnessed a man beating up his wife and they tried to break it up but were looked down on as interfering in something that's none of their business. Different culture in Japan when it comes to spousal abuse I guess. Neil said it left a bad taste in his mouth about the whole Japan tour experience.

Summers in Rangoon,luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets.

Hey to stay on topic what was the problem when Rush did play in Japan? Neil had a problem with someone or something and that's why they wouldn't go back or something like that? Also do you guys think if they do tour again they would ever try and get to Australia or is there not enough interest there to make it worth their while?

It did sound a little wet, there didn't it? Right at the end! Oooh! Heh-heh-heh. Let's have a smell all right? Hmmm, wafting, wafting. Ooh, everyone likes their own brand, don't they? Oh, this is magic! All right, analysis. Smells like carrots in throw-up! Ooh, that could gag a maggot! I smell like hot sick ass on a dead carcass! Even stink would say that stinks! You know when you go into an apartment building and you smell the other people's cooking on each floor and you go "What are they cookin'?" That, plus crap!

I really like Alex's acoustic piece that he plays at 3:35. Could indicate the direction of the next album. Sounded very spontaneous. Love the open notes. Will probably show up on a bridge or intro somewhere on next album.

Are you telling pork pies and a bag of tripe?

Do you speak Japanese?
A little.
Well you might be a cunning linguist, but I'm a master debater.

Jimi Hendrix deceased, drugs. Janis Joplin deceased, alcohol. Mama Cass deceased, ham sandwich.
