We know you’re all excited as fuck for this episode – and it’s streaming NOW at SwearNet!! Bubbles gets some bad news – are his hopes and dreams fackin’ dashed? But on the upside, the Sunnyvale Correctional Facility has a new inmate, and he knows how to get things done…
Alex Lifeson is in the house! Er, the guitar factory! The legendary RUSH guitarist joins the Boys at the Gibson Guitar Factory in Memphis on the latest episode of the Trailer Park Boys Podcast, now available for fucking free in audio form on iTunes and Libsyn!
Now that Rush has stopped doing the massive live tours, Bubbles wonders if Alex would be up for becoming a Shitrocker. Lucky for him, Alex is still working on new material, and he debuts it, right here on the fuckin’ podcash!
PLUS: Are Ricky, Julian, Bubbles, and Alex eating jerky… or… did Ricky just slip them a bunch of mushrooms and assorted Memphis drugs?!
The Boys chat with Alex about his signature Gibson Les Paul guitar, and ask him what life is like now that Rush has stopped touring (including an open invitation to serve as the lead guitarist for Bubbles and the Shitrockers). They also discuss Alex’s totally fucked acceptance speech at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, funny stories from the road, and Alex’s many multi-lingual guitars. We even get a taste of some new material he’s working on, though it’s most likely just the fucked up ramblings of a man totally fucked on secret mushrooms from Ricky.
PLUS: Find out Alex’s preferred method of cooking goat.
In honour of RUSH’s 40th anniversary as Canada’s best band, indie legends Sebadoh have released a cover of the classic song “Limelight” – and look who’s on the A-side!
