According to Hennemusic, Alex Lifeson will make an appearance on two tracks on the new album by fellow Canadian guitarist, Rik Emmett, planned for release in November of this year. Lifeson and Emmett have worked together twice in the past, appearing together on "Beyond Borders" with the Canadian Guitar Summit, released as a 45 rpm flexidisk included in Guitar Player magazine, July 1987. The following year, they appeared on "Hands of Man" as part of The Big Picture on Dream On The Horizon: A Tribute To The Olympic Spirit! Also appearing on Emmett's album are original Triumph bassist Mike Levine and drummer Gil Moore, the original Triumph lineup who last worked together in the studio on 1987's "Surveillance" before the guitarist exited the lineup in 1988. - Thanks to the B-man for the headsup!

  1. That is pretty good news i must admit i am a bit of a Triumph fan in the late 70's, although i know very little of Rick's solo material it will be interesting to see how the album will sound
    it's definitely something to look forward too, towards the end of the year
