Alex Lifeson's Favorite Christmas Songs

In a new feature from, 11 rock stars pick their favorite Christmas songs, including Alex Lifeson: "I always liked the Little Drummer Boy because of the tonality of the song. There was always something very plaintive about it. It wasn’t one of those 'up,' joyous Christmas songs, which tend to get a little overdone. Actually, I did a version of it a while ago that came out nice. "On the other hand, I do like upbeat Christmas songs, so I’d say my second pick would be Joy To The World – not anybody’s version, in particular; I just like the song itself. It's spirited and very 'Ho, ho, ho!' [laughs]" Here is Alex Lifeson's "Little Drummer Boy" which appeared on Merry Axemas Vol. 1 in 1997. - Thanks to RushFanForever the the headsup!
