'A very interesting road': Geddy Lee on his new bass book and what he misses most about Rush
RUSH Jul 10, 2019
Repost @geddyimages ・・・ Hello there United States of Americans... I am very VERY happy to announce that, at long last, the 2nd printing of the BBBoB has landed upon your shores and as a result, stores will have fresh books in stock, online shops have been replenished and I will be embarking on another leg of the Official (Yet Kind of Random) Big Beautiful Book of Bass Tour... so all you Bass nerds, vintage freaks, Rush fans and random normal people come on out to one of these cities, pick up a book and say "Howdy Ged...” Go to rush.com/geddylee for all book signing event details! Looking forward to seeing you out on the road!
RUSH Jul 10, 2019
Repost @geddyimages ・・・ Every once in a while during this BBBoB book signing tour we stop moving and indulge in a conversation about all things bassy including some talk about my time in Rush...We have had quite a variety of "guest hosts" for these, ranging from musicologists to Rock radio folks and even one well known raconteur and fellow Rush Idiot Alex Lifeson ..So, taking yet another approach for this Q and A in Nashville I find myself lucky enough to have as hosts, not 1 but 2 of Rush's past Record Producers...Nick Rasculinecz and Peter Collins.. both Nashville residents in fact! Now these chaps couldn't be more different...Nick is a Tennessee born "Badass" and Peter is a transplanted "London Gentleman"...and this combo should make for some lively and interesting musical chit chat..! #BBBOB #nashville #thebasementeast #nickraskulinecz #petercollins #nickwasinfoosrushrockhalljam #yesthatistswift #youwanttocometothisbbbobQandAsigning #reallyyoudo

Geddy Lee will be at the National Music Centre in Calgary, Alberta, on May 25 for a book signing and Q&A with writer and broadcaster Daniel Richler, who co-wrote the book with Lee. Calgary’s National Music Centre will launch Geddy Lee’s Big Beautiful Bass Exhibit, which includes 26 instruments from the musician’s collection. For the exhibit, Lee focused on rare or historically significant basses and also ones that had significance to him during his tenure in Rush. It will include a Rickenbacker 4001, which Lee used for a number of the band’s iconic recordings in the 1970s and 1980s. The famous bass line in the 1981 hit Tom Sawyer, however, was played on a 1972 Fender Jazz bass that Lee picked up in a pawnshop, which will also be on display. Others included in the exhibit have broader histories. The 1952 Fender Precision was among the first mass-produced electric basses. A 1961 Hofner Cavern matches the one Paul McCartney played during the Fab Four’s salad days in Liverpool.

"I never thought I’d have a chance to meet Geddy, and I couldn’t miss it for the life of me...This was the opportunity of a lifetime," said Rush fan Loran Werrun. At 7 p.m., Lee emerged from a doorway to cheers and claps from fans lined up in a queue zig-zagging through nearly the entirety of the bookstore’s vast aisles.

Victoria BC fans: we’re ready to see you at Bolen’s for Geddy Lee’s Big Beautiful Book of Bass signing at 7pm tonight! #GeddyLeesBBBoB First date of the 🇨🇦 tour!
RUSH May 22, 2019
Q: Does all this collecting and writing lead to any musically creative thoughts? Geddy: “I try to go down at least once or twice a week to my (home) studio and get to know these instruments a bit more and put some ideas down, but I don’t know what will come of them, if anything. Time will tell. They’re going to keep me busy (with the book tour in other parts of the world) until next Christmas and then I’ll be free as bird and probably next spring I’ll start looking at some serious musical ideas.” Q: You’re touring again but in a different way. Do you miss touring with Rush? Geddy: I don’t miss leaving (my family). But I miss those three hours on stage with my buddies. That, especially in the last 10 years of touring, was so much fun and so gratifying. Geddy Lee’s book signing kicks off in Victoria, BC today! Rush.com/geddylee Read the full interview here:

Book signings so far have produced a surprisingly varied turnout, including men and women both young and old, and even small children. “One wouldn’t expect a book on bass guitars to bring a ton of people out of the woodwork ... but there seems to be a connection point for a lot of Rush fans. “It has been an interesting experience and a pleasant one, from my perspective, getting a couple of moments with longtime fans. And I think it has been nice for them, too. A lot of them seem very excited to get a couple of minutes to share their thoughts about my career with Rush and what it has meant to them.”

May 5, 2012 -- Flashback to The GG's... May 5, 2012, Rush became laureates of The Governor General’s Performing Arts Award (affectionately nicknamed The GG’s), Canada’s highest honour in the performing arts. It was a diverse and inspiring group that year, as Rush stood alongside Deepa Mehta, Des McAnuff, Mary Walsh, Paul-Andre Fortier, Denis Marleau, Erlaine Collins & Janina Fialkowska. Longtime pal Matt Stone had made the trip to Ottawa and unsurprisingly, delivered a highly entertaining induction speech for the band. “More than anything, it made me proud of Canada—that an event like that could embrace the country’s artists across such a broad spectrum, from high-falutin’ artsy types to rock bums like us, and represent them with international luminaries like Matt Stone, Pete Townshend, and Salman Rushdie,” recalled Neil Peart. “There’s a quote by Bob Dylan I have repeated from time to time in interviews for years, ‘The highest purpose of art is to inspire. What else can you do? What else can you do for anyone but inspire them?” You can read Neil’s poignant full post about that night (and subsequent, impromptu but legendary dinner party that followed…) http://www.neilpeart.net/index.php/space-for-news-items/june-2012-where-words-fail-music-speaks/ https://www.rush.com/flashback-to-the-ggs/

Geddy Lee’s Official (Yet Kind of Random) Big Beautiful Book of Bass Tour has announced Canadian dates! Event Tickets are available now in select markets at Rush.com/geddylee One special stop on the tour will be in Calgary where Geddy Lee will open Geddy Lee’s Big Beautiful Bass Exhibition at Studio Bell at The National Music Centre (NMC), highlighting a selection of his rare and iconic bass guitars Following Geddy Lee’s Big Book of Bass Exhibit at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Studio Bell is hosting the first Canadian exhibit of the artist’s bass guitars, with 26 instruments curated by Lee himself. Lee has spent years collecting hundreds of vintage bass guitars-a passion which became the inspiration for Geddy Lee’s Big Beautiful Book of Bass. To celebrate the release of his new book, NMC is launching a feature exhibition at Studio Bell that will coincide with Lee’s cross-Canada book tour. NMC will host an exclusive event with Geddy Lee that includes a special Q&A followed by a book signing on May 25th with exhibit opening to the public on May 26th, 2019. “The instruments featured at Studio Bell are a combination of rare vintage basses from the Golden Age of guitar production as well as significant ones that I’ve used throughout my career. Basses that I’ve scoured the world to get my hands on,” said Geddy Lee. “This exhibition gives people a look into the origins and the earliest years of the instrument that help shape popular music … as well as the ones that I’ve lovingly held in my hands for over 40 years as I developed a sound that I could call my own. It’s the largest display of basses from my personal collection ever and I’m excited to share this with my fans in Canada.” Visitors will get an up-close look at some of Lee’s guitars from his four decades with Rush, as well as a selection of his historically significant and beautifully crafted collectors’ items. Exhibition highlights include Lee’s iconic Rickenbacker 4001, which appeared on numerous Rush recordings from the 70’s and 80’s, his signature 1972 Fender Jazz bass, heard on “Tom Sawyer” as well as many of Rush’s more recent recordings; a 1952 Fender Precision bass: an early example of the world’s first mass-produced electric bass; a 1961 Höfner “Cavern” bass, identical to Paul McCartney’s signature instrument used during the Beatles’ early days in Liverpool; Rare and eccentric instruments from around the world and so many more. Geddy Lee’s Big Beautiful Bass Exhibit is accessible with paid admission to Studio Bell, and will run from May 26, 2019 to January 2, 2019. Studio Bell will be open seven days a week from May 20 until September 2 and is open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Regular admission to Studio Bell is $18 for adults, $14 for students/seniors, $11 for children (3-12 years of age), and free for children under 3 years of age.

Austin, Texas April 23, 2013 on Clockwork Angels tour, first show post Rock Hall induction — “Of all the emotions surrounding our induction into the RRHOF back in 2013, the one I expected the least was “comic relief” — yet when I walked out onstage at the very first show after that momentous day the sight of hundreds of signs being held aloft with the words “Blah Blah Blah” had us all grinning widely and laughing...it was a beautiful thing...” - Geddy Lee
