Alex Lifeson: LERXT! Brian May may (sorry) be my favorite guitarist of all time, but Alex is most likely a very close second.

Yeah, he is, to an extent, but to me it's a non-factor and part of his sound. It's what makes Alex sound like Alex. I'm constantly hearing him play stuff that makes me think, "Yeah, I'd do it that way, too."
