I wonder who did it...looks pretty good....you can easily tell he's had work done by looking at photos
of him from 5-10 yrs ago (he was receeding pretty heavily).

I am pretty certain that Alex Lifeson (RUSH guitarist) had his work done (many yrs ago)
from Walter Unger in Toronto (my doc, too)....you can see the punch grafts at the back
of his head when the lights are on him, when I was looking at him in a concert through
my binoculars.

I never paid much attention. I downloaded a Rush DVD bootleg from 1994 and it looked like Alex was getting a bit thin in the crown. But I didn't even think of looking at Neil.

If you can see the punch grafts in the back of his head, I don't know how you can say that it looks good. Clearly, it doesn't. If you can see the punch grafts it is obvious he had a HT and a result everyone would want to avoid.

I never said the one on alex looked good (at least not inferred that) ...i meant that neil peart's
work looked quite good (not alex's, however).

By the way, when did you see Rush?

I've downloaded some killer sounding Rush bootlegs from www.easytree.org. They sound better than most live albums. I listen to live Rush all the time--can't get enough!

I never knew that Neil had work, but then again he did wear a skull cap for a while. Alex has had obvious work though and needs some repair performed. I noticed this as he was being interviewed after receiving Canadas medal of honour?? Or something to that effect.




Ciao!

Interesting. I had never even bothered to look at them with the HT eye. Though I did notice in the DVD I got that Alex was a bit thin in the crown--as would be expected of a man nearing 50. And Neil was wearing a skull cap. Now it all makes sense...

Perhaps someone should mention H&W to those guys.

Neil has worn that 'funky' skull cap for a while...don't think it's to really hide his hair loss (as mentioned, you can go to www.rush.com and see his latest photo)...his skull cap is, I believe, more of a fashion sense.

But back to Alex Lifeson, the blond lead guitarist: when I was at a Rush concert years ago, I had a side stage seat near the stage and again could see the punch grafts he had done (row of dots on the back of his head)....that is Unger's signature (I'm also a victim...early 80's procedures).

As well, when we both started having it done in the mid 80s, in their first major tour (Farewell to Kings) his hair was thinning so badly (it was long back then) that he had it brushed forward (UGLY!)...and then a few yrs later on their
'permanent waves' tour, i was at front row and Alex had his hair cut shorter and and it looked fuller...while playing, he then spotted someone he knew in the first few rows, smiled and drew his hand through his hair as an inconspicuous signal...I then knew he had HT done (doubtlessly by UNGER, as in the mid 80s he was 'the KING' and located in TORONTO (where both Alex and I both lived).

Cheers
Joe

Actually I dont think Neil has had any work done. I thought he did after Vapor Trails came out, because his hair was styled differently, but after seeing subsequent pics with his hairline exposed I can say that the hairline is just as receded. I'll see if I can dig some recent pics up. Alex, however, is another story. He most certainly has plugs. I've seen pics where they are in plain view. I wonder why he doesnt get them corrected?

Anyway, Rush is awesome!!
