music news 12/01/2019

Ex-Rush members Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson will make a rare joint appearance after the band's 2015 retirement next week. The pair will be taking part in 'Rush Fan Day' at the Rock Hall of Fame in Cleveland on the 19th of January.

The main focus of the event will be Geddy Lee's recently published book 'Big Beautiful Book of Bass', with a signing session and an exhibit featuring bass guitars from his collection. Lee will also have an interview session, hosted by his lifelong friend Lifeson at noon, which will be streamed on the Rock Hall's Facebook page, giving fans the opportunity to submit questions live. The event will be re-broadcasted across a different U.S. radio channels. Throughout the day, footage of Rush's induction into the Rock Hall of Fame in 2013 will be shown at the museum's Forest City Theatre. 

Tickets are selling for $100 USD for members, and $125 USD for non-members. The ticket price includes a copy of Lee's book (which retails for $75 USD) as well as access to all events.

Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book of Bass was released last month, featuring 250 vintage and rare instruments across 408 pages, many of which are owned by Lee. He worked on the project for seven years, speaking with famous bassists like Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, the Rolling Stones' Bill Wyman, Metallica's Robert Trujillo, U2's Adam Clayton and Wilco's Jeff Tweedy. Lifeson wrote the foreword of the book.
