The problem I have is that the majority of these basses in Geddys collection have nothing to do with Rush, he had little interest in them over the 40 years the band were together yet some of the ones that were a big part of the bands history seem to have been excluded, i'm fairly certain he hasn't been to see Paul Herman at Wal HQ in the UK which is a shame!

It says from the Harper Collins publishing site here and Amazon here that the book will be released on November 13th of this year.

I'm holding out for the autographed edition!  :lol:  Maybe.

That was my initial thought. Also, I'm not letting them hold my money 8 months unless I get some incentives.

How is a book a spoiler?

I'm fuckking spoiled.

I want to see Geddy and Alex play their instruments.

A book???

"WOT?"  A FLOWER?

GENESIS RULES!

Steve Hackett still plays an instrument called a guitar.

Sir Paul still plays something called a bass.

Fukk a book.

I don't want to jack off to a book of Geddy's basses.  So self indulgent.

Play the bass Geddy!  FENDER JAZZ!

You know that if Geddy did a mini-book signing tour (and I think it’s a fair possibility), you’d be in line waiting to get your copy signed. You’ll be mentally jacking off in that line and imagining which words you’ll choose to convince him to go on tour.

So let me get this right, we are invited to pay good money for a book showing pictures of Geddys relatively new collection of basses, most of which are an assortment of vintage Fender Jazz basses, that have little to do with Rush and were used only for the last tour, with a distinct possibility that some of the instruments that featured heavily in the bands career like the Steinberger and Wals probably being emitted as they've been airbrushed from Rush history it seems? Hmm, think i'll probably save my money and take a browse round the Central London music shops and see vintage guitars for free!

According to this article the book will only go up to 1972: https://www.packingh...-from-geddy-lee

"It's called Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book Of Bass, and will be published next year. His co-author on the project is Daniel Richler. They are putting together a story about how the electric bass was developed, in the time period up to 1972."

BassPlayer magazine says a limited number of signed copies will be available ..... Available where?

I have my pre-order on Amazon, nothing on RushBackstage as of yet ...

Hoping for a book signing tour! Would be a great opportunity to get my Basses all signed :-)

If there’s a limited number of signed copies available for purchase, then wouldn’t that most likely mean there isn’t going to be a book signing tour?

Think about it. Fan X pays $75 for a signed copy. 4 months later Fan Y goes to Barnes & Nobles to get his copy signed for free.

If anything, paying for a signed copy would happen IF you missed the book signing rounds NOT before the rounds happened.

I know . . .  but a girl can dream, can't she ? :lol: I was just hoping that with the way most of the Rush limited edition stuff sells out, Geddy might do both to make some more available.

No doubt he would show up at Barnes and Noble Columbus Circle in downtown NYC some day I can't get there! :banghead:

There are 22 letters in “Big Beautiful Book of Bass”.

22 divided by 2 of you equals 11...the number of letters in “JohnnyBlaze”.
