Geddy Lee has announced a run of book signing dates across the U.S. this month. The Rush singer, bassist and keyboardist will be promoting his Big Beautiful Book of Bass with stops in Nashville, St. Louis, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia and Atlanta.
A full list of appearances is below.
Lee’s Big Beautiful Book of Bass is a 400-plus page hardcover book showcasing the bulk of Lee’s personal collection of vintage electric bass guitars, which date from the 1950s to the 1980s. Written in his singular voice, the book reveals the stories, songs, and history behind the instruments in the collection. It also features a graphically designed timeline of the history of the bass, as well as an up-close look at Geddy Lee’s basses on Rush’s final R40 Tour, his stage and recording gear from 1968 to 2017, and forewords by author and respected vintage expert, Terry Foster, and Rush band member, Alex Lifeson.
The book also features interviews with John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Adam Clayton (U2), Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), Bill Wyman (The Rolling Stones), Les Claypool (Primus) and Bob Daisley (Rainbow), as well as Fender expert Ken Collins, and veteran guitar tech for The Who, Alan Rogan.
Tickets for the book signing are available for purchase through the official Rush website and include a copy of the book.
Lee appeared for book signing events in West Hollywood and San Francisco earlier this year before heading to Europe for events in the UK, Netherlands and Germany last month.
