Alex Lifeson’s net worth: Alex Lifeson is a Canadian musician, better known as the co-founder and guitarist of the Canadian rock band Rush, which has a net worth of $ 35 million. Alex Lifeson was born Aleksandar Živojinović on August 27, 1953 in Fernie, British Columbia, Canada, of Serbian immigrants and raised in Toronto, Ontario. His stage name “Lifeson” is a semi-literal translation of the name “Zivojinovich”, which means “son of life” in Serbian. His first exposure to formal musical training came in the form of viola, which he gave up on guitar at the age of 12. His first guitar was a Christmas gift from his father, a classic six-string Kent acoustic that was later upgraded to An Electric Japanese Model. During his teenage years, he was mainly influenced by Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townshend, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page. In the summer of 1968, Lifeson co-founded the band that would become Rush. Other co-founders are friend and drummer John Rutsey, bassist and lead vocalist Jeff Jones, and Jones’s successor, current leader Geddy Lee, a month later. For Rush, Lifeson plays electric and acoustic guitars, as well as other string instruments. He also performs choirs in live performances and occasionally plays keyboards and bass pedal synthesizers. Like the other Rush members, Lifeson performs real-time shooting of sampled instruments on stage, while playing his guitar. Most of Lifeson’s musical work has been with Rush, although Lifeson has also contributed to a body outside the band. In addition to music, Lifeson is co-owner of The Orbit Room, a bar and restaurant located in Toronto, Canada, a licensed painter and pilot of aircraft.
