Not Geddy Lee – But It Sure Sounds Like Him
They say everyone has a person somewhere in the world who looks just like them, a doppelgänger. But what do you call someone who sounds just like another person?
Tribute bands have proliferated in recent years and they can make a good living performing the works of successful bands present and past.
I’m not into tribute bands, as good as some of them might be. But I ran across this video of the Rush tribute band 2112 performing live. The band is very good. The singer, Anthony Paul? It has been said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Geddy Lee should be flattered by this. You be the judge.
and the Real McCoy, Rush, performing the Spirit of Radio live in 1980
I played them simultaneously in 2 browsers and they are nearly identical as far as voice.
If you know of a singer or a tribute band that sounds better than the real thing – drop us a line and tell us who it is.
