Guitarist

If Alex Lifeson (born Aleksandar Živojinović; August 27, 1953), guitarist with the rock band Rush, has spoken about his views on religion, I have been unable to find it. His two band mates have self-identified as agnostic (Neil Peart) and atheist (Geddy Lee) but Lifeson has been quiet on the subject. However, the documentary film about Rush, Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage, includes a scene with Lee and Lifeson reading as they travel between concerts. At about 1:39 in the film one can see Lee reading William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury while Lifeson is reading God Is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens. At the very least, this suggests that Lifeson may reasonably be seen as "apparently skeptical of theism or religion", placing him in the Ambiguous category.
