Alex Lifeson talks about David Gilmour's playing style Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Sunday, 07 June 2009

Guitar World August 2009Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee of Rush reveal the music that is "closest to their hearts" in the latest issue of Guitar World magazine, instore this week in North America, and Pink Floyd is included in their choices, singling out Comfortably Numb:

"David Gilmour is so well respected, and while he's often overlooked among guitarists, I think people who appreciate rock guitarists regard him as one of the best. He's a brilliant player and has such passion and feel. You can sense he's a smart man: you can hear how he puts it all together and how it fits, which is a real testament to his songwriting. He's such a bluesy player, to boot. My eyes water whenever I hear this song. Pink Floyd have such incredible arrangements; their songs are rich and complex but not particularly complicated. They can take as long as they want to tell you a story, but it's always interesting."

Our thanks to B-Man for the head's up on this. Of course, this isn't the first time Alex has talked of David - check out this audio interview segment from 2007 when Rush's current album, Snakes And Arrows, came out...
