UPDATE - 9/21@10:11AM: John at has transcribed the article and made it available online here. The interview covers most of the subjects that Alex has already covered in recent interviews, including his Envy of None project, new signature guitar, foray into social media, and more.

Rush's Alex Lifeson is featured on the cover of the upcoming November, 2021 issue of Guitar Player magazine. The cover features a photo of Alex with his new Epiphone Les Paul Standard Axcess with a tagline of Alex Lifeson - New signature Les Paul, new music & the thrill of life after Rush, alongside this quote from the interview: "I'm really having a renaissance." Joe Bosso conducted the interview and wrote the corresponding article, titled New World Man. The magazine also includes a review of Lifeson's new signature guitar written by Jimmy Leslie. Guitar Player has provided a 21-page sampler of the issue online, which includes the cover page of the Alex Lifeson article, and the Les Paul signature guitar review. Thanks to RushFanForever and Jeff H for the heads up.
