Alex Lifeson to appear on VH1 Classic Rock Nights tonight

Wed, Feb 9, 2011@7:51AM | comments removed/disabled

UPDATE - 2/13@7:41PM: In the interview, Alex mentions one of his recent side projects as being some work on the score for a movie starring Martin Sheen and Richard Gere. This film is titled The Double and features original music by John Debney. Alex is not currently listed in the film's credits so my guess is that he's just performing on the soundtrack and isn't necessarily writing any of the music. Thanks to Sniglets at Counterparts and RushFanForever for the heads up.

UPDATE - 2/9@10:18PM: The interview is over. Nothing much new although Alex mentioned a few side projects he's working on such as scoring some music for a film.

UPDATE - 2/9@10:06PM: Alex is on! You can listen in right now at this link (thanks evilsugar25).

UPDATE - 2/9@5:59PM: Tonight's show will be broadcast live from Los Angeles and will focus on the Grammys which take place this weekend where the Rush documentary Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage is up for an award. The nationally-syndicated show runs from 7PM to midnight (EST) and you can listen live by tuning into one of the stations listed on their website, either via your radio or online for those stations with online streaming. sent out a newsletter earlier this morning announcing that Alex Lifeson would be appearing on VH1 Classic Rock Nights this evening.
