Dave's great friends with Alex, he used both the double neck and his original 355 for the Classic Albums Live a bunch of years back ago, 2005 that's when. They did 2112, and I know for sure he had Alex's gear, they also did Moving Pictures too, but I think Rush were in rehearsal for an album or tour, I don't remember seeing those awesome guitars on stage. I could see the Alex Lifeson covers for both guitars from where I was for CAL 2112, the gold truss rod covers were on the double neck at that time. See this photo I saved from the CAL website at the time link

Great sounding song too, fresh and clean to my ears, a lil Rush influence in there too, I think it's part of Dave's style. I like Hollowbody, that promo vid, surf rock to the extreme :)

this sounded like Led Zeppelin!

very good band.

What about the guitar solo - it didn't sync at all.
Could it have been Lifeson playing the solo? Somehow the sync was entirely off making me suspect he may have been acting rather than playing that bit.

'Sonar' kind of reminds me of 'The Road Home' by Steve Morse.

I really liked that - became very zep-like after about 2 mins in. Really good vibe to it - will have to check more of their stuff out.

A-C-O-A, no I haven't seen that before either on his double neck, and the plate was very small. I don't recall a prior photo of the headstock where it was visible.

Using the master's instrument - priceless!

hey thanks #4, and i like that username too, really neat!! yeah, now i see they zoomed in on it at about 2:45. i was listening and watching while using multiple tabs in my browser. that was really appropriate to zoom in like that and give Alex props in the video. i don't recall seeing a nameplate like that, is that something new Gibson put on for him the last time the guitar went through the custom shop? I've seen the plastic ones with LIFESON on them that was in the regular font, but this one is really trick!

Yes he did, Alex's nameplate was on headstock. What a thrill that must have been. I rather enjoyed this song.

Looking forward to the show June 10th in New Orleans!

did that dude borrow Alex's double neck for this???

All respect to Spoons and Forks, but I disagree. The overall feel is very Rushian, admittedly, but I hear a distinct "voice" in there, and I would like to hear more. Bought both tracks on Amazon MP3. More bands that share an aesthetic with Rush is a good thing in my book.

But does that sound remind you of another band? I mean,'s Rush through and through! Is Alex responsible or is that band responsible for their sound?

Not impressed, even if the dudes got skill and chops!
