Alex Lifeson on his involvement with John Wesley's Disconnect in new Guitar Player interview
9:56AM EST | comments |

Guitarist John Wesley's latest album Disconnect released back in April and Alex Lifeson makes a guest appearance, playing a guitar solo on the track Once a Warrior. Wesley is best known to Rush fans as the touring guitarist for Porcupine Tree. A live video of Wesley and his band performing Once a Warrior - including Wesley's tackling of Lifeson's solo - can be viewed on YouTube at this location. Wesley is the subject of an interview feature by Anil Prasad in the upcoming October, 2014 issue of Guitar Player magazine. The feature includes a short sidebar interview with Alex Lifeson where Alex talks about his involvement with Disconnect. When asked why he wanted to contribute to the album Alex says the following:

I could tell that John and I shared the same discipline in our guitar playing in terms of context and content; that's evident throughout Wes' songs on the album. The dynamics employed in his songwriting, and the strong vocal and guitar performances on every track make Disconnect cohesive and meaty. It was a privilege to be a part of it.

The October, 2014 issue of Guitar Player should be hitting newsstands next week, but you can see some preview scans of the feature by clicking the thumbnails above. You can learn more about John Wesley by visiting his website or following him on Facebook, and you can order your copy of Disconnect here.
