So now I've discussed John Rutsey's being heavily influenced by John Bonham's drum riff from "The Immigrant Song" in no less than four songs on "Rush."
I've discussed Alex Lifeson's being influenced in two songs by two Jimmy Page riffs in Zep's "Heartbreaker."
Now, the Zeppelin Influence Trifecta ia complete!! This time, it's fashion rather than music:
Page & Plant:
Lee, Lifeson & Peart, in the mid-'70s--note Geddy's open-to-the-navel shirt:
I hate to say it--Rush being my favorite band and all--but the Zep guys look a lot cooler. The Rush guys look like they're in tryouts for the "Charlie's Angels" drag review.
