Mick Middles speaks to Rush bassist and singer Geddy Lee about his favourite albums of all times... and finds surprises amidst the classic of the canon


Cream - Disraeli Gears
Well, perhaps the connection is obvious. Cream kind of invented the blues rock three piece. They grasped the blues and just took it somewhere else. I loved Ginger Baker's jazz drumming and, most important for me, the fluid bass lines of Jack Bruce. Again this is one of the bands I saw in Toronto and was truly inspiring. I knew I wanted to be part of a three piece from that concert. Cream paved the way and showed me what was possible.
