Now that is something to look forward to.Being a bassist /guitarist and a No 1 fan of Geddy this book looks like it could be special.Hope he goes into how he got that funky sound out of those clothes dryers.

Yes indeed. From largemouth bass to rock bass (Ged’s fav no doubt) to sea bass Geddy has all the species covered.

He’s trying to emulate John Entwistle. It’s kind of funny.

By putting out a book of his personal collection ??

Entwistle's book came out almost 15 years ago, and there have been many similar books since ..

At this point in his life, Geddy doesn't have to emulate anyone, and this book seems like a natural for Geddy considering that Geddy is an avid collector of many things, not just basses

Was Entwistle emulating Steve Howe ??

Sorry but that’s the way I see it. No need to be defensive.

Maybe. But never underestimate the power of fans. Besides, Geddy is the one Rush member that seems furthest from retirement and relaxing at home.

Eagle, apologies if I came across that way ..

I just see it as a natural fit for Geddy considering he has a pretty good collection, and, he seems to enjoy collecting stuff ..

I don't think that at this point in his life, Geddy is attempting to emulate or keep up with any other musicians to the point where it can be seen as "funny"
