Rock Aid Armenia - Smoke on the Water featuring Alex Lifeson

< Back

Back in late 1989 Alex Lifeson and several other heavy metal and hard rock artists gathered for a humanitarian project to raise money to help those affected by the December 7th, 1988 earthquake in Gyumri, Armenia. It was called Rock Aid Armenia - The Earthquake Album and was released in 1990. It consisted of original tracks by the bands of the different contributors (including The Spirit of Radio from Rush) and this popular re-recording of one of Deep Purple's famous hit songs "Smoke on the water".
