Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson discuss "The Bag" and its origins. This clip and more are in the Rush documentary Time Stand Still.
In a new preview clip from Rolling Stone, Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson share stories from their mid-Seventies tour with KISS in the documentary. Longtime lighting director Howard Ungerleider recalls that while on the road, Lifeson used to put a paper bag on his head and put his hands through his pants to entertain his bandmates and KISS guitarist Ace Frehley. He called his character “The Bag”.
"Bring the Bag over here," Lifeson says in a clip, doing an impression of Frehley in a high-pitched voice. "Howie, where's the Bag?" Lee echoes, referring to the band's lighting director. They would fool around, much to the consternation of KISS’ Gene Simmons. "Gene was very, very upset with the Bag," Lifeson recalls, "and that made Ace even happier."
