    Looking forward to checking this out, he has published a big coffee table book all about bass. He apparently has over 200 basses and got the bug to research and write about some of them.

    I loved his quote from CBC this morning, "No one starts playing bass willingly."

    Hoping to catch the full interview tomorrow.

    One of Santa's helpers gave me a copy of it today, specifically for my bass-playing son...

    I was going to pre-order this book a month or so ago, but was holding out hope that Geddy Lee might do a book-signing tour in Canada. So far, he has done TO and I am hoping he would come to Montreal as well. If not, then I will order it after the holidays.

    If it was me Boogieman, I might wait and see if Montreal gets one - here's what was up on the Rush site for the Toronto signing (see the last line at the bottom...)

    The Toronto and New Jersey signings were just the only ones before Xmas.

    If you can, give the interview a listen. Q repeats each evening at 10:00PM.

    Great interview! Such a class act.
     
  12. I decided to download the book. 5 and change with tax.
    Had to download the Kobo reader too (free).

    A lot of beautiful shots in it.
    This way I get to share some of it with you guys.
    @Milkman will appreciate this;

    How much writing is there in the book?
    A little, a bit more than a little, or a lot?
     
  14. A little less than 50%.
    I've only done a quick skim so far.
