He plays guitar and composes for the rock group Rush, owns and operates a small consumer product design engineering and manufacturing firm (The Omega Concern), as a gourmet chef is part owner of a Toronto restaurant (The Orbit Room), and is a licensed aircraft pilot and motorcycle operator.
During 2003, he played himself on the Canadian smash hit mockumentary Trailer Park Boys. On New Year's Eve 2003-2004, Lifeson, his son, and his daughter-in-law were arrested at a Naples, Florida hotel. Lifeson, after intervening in an altercation between his son and police, was accused of assaulting a sheriff's deputy in what was described as a drunken brawl.
He has been charged with two counts of battery on a law enforcement officer (punishable up to 5 years per count), and a "sounding" date, when the latest on the case is discussed by attorneys and the judge is January 5, 2005 for both Alex and his son.
