THE POINT: Around 11:00 into Rock in Roll it sounds an awful lot like Trey is playing the main lick from the solo in Rush's "By-Tor & the Snow Dog" (album: Fly By Night, '75). I throw in the year so that you'll actually consider listening to it.
Here's it's all cued up for ya:
Listen to the full song to get a taste of the awesomeness of original Rush. As a music lover, you owe it to yourself.
So I'm really curious to hear what everyone here has to say. It certainly *sounds* like the same lick. But is it coincidence? An homage? What?
