The History of the Bass Guitar with Geddy Lee

posted by Shannon Steele - 

Rush bassist Geddy Lee is expounding upon the history of his instrument in a new book titled Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book of Bass - a seven-year endeavor - due out December 4. 

It will feature the stories behind 250 famous and rare basses, as well as interviews with some of the most acclaimed bass players. 

"It's not surprising that sooner or later I'd dive down the proverbial rabbit hole into the world of vintage bass guitars," Lee stated during a press release.

Lee's own bass collection, which includes instruments made in the '50s, is featured, showing off those used on Rush's R40 tour and detailing his stage and studio setups from throughout his career.

If that's not enough for Rush fans, the band is getting its own Funko Pop! figures line that feature the three members in their '70s stage costumes, with Lee dressed in a dragon-adorned kimono and drummer Neil Peart sporting a mustache.
