Rick Wakeman on Freemasonry

Lewis Masonic's program "On The Level" interviews renowned composer and keyboard virtuoso Rick Wakeman ("Yes") about his Masonic membership in England's Chelsea Lodge No. 3098, and why he joined.

H/T to Daniel Gardiner.

Brother Wakeman describes being referred to as "almost a Lewis". I don't know what this means. Is it a British expression?

A "Lewis" is the son of a Mason, and the term comes from a metal key that slips into a channel cut into the top of a finished stone used to lift it on an operative mason worksite.
