Michael Schenker and Alex Lifeson
I have always thought that Mad Mikey and Alex sounded kinda similar in their soloing styles, specially in their 70's recorded output. I think this is most noticeable in the solo of Working Man, but I can even hear traces as far as, say, Hemispheres. I know UFO and RUSH toured together, so they were aware of each other, but I always thought it was more a coincidence than anything else, or maybe even more likely, I am just hearing stuff it's not there.
Then someone at a Schenker facebook group posted the same, and a couple of members agreed, and I am thinking maybe it's not just me.
I am not saying they sound alike, or that one copied the other, it's just certain things, and Lifeson's old tone, than remind me of Mike's.
Or maybe it's just the Jimmy Page thing, who was a HUGE influence for them both...
Anyone has noticed, or feels the way I do?
