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?
Nooooooooo !

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.

Cruel algebra. Let Blueschica = :(
Let vt = :smoke:
Let JB = :blaze:

X = 75
Y = (duration - Z)
Z = 0

No, you’ve already demonstrated your cruel mathematics and devastated poor Blueschica.
Here, this is better:

A = 4
B = 2
C = 0

I'm alright but I do look forward to a public appearance by Geddy since the restraining order keeps me away from his home . . .

I'd get a signed copy if I can before it sells out, but I'm sure it'll be a crapshoot unless rushbackstage actually emails ahead of time (they didn't for Alex's west end Phoenix newspaper piece until it was on the site).

FWIW it's not supposed to be a Rush book, it's a bass book.  As usual, though, a couple of fans here think it's all about what they want--waaaaaaaah!  It doesn't have 1980s Wal basses in it!  Waaaaah!  Bass players in general give zero rats' asses about Wal basses, aside from those who worship Geddy, and if he had never played one, no one would.  Yes, I get that a lot of people who will buy this are going to be Rush fans who really know nothing about playing or about musical instruments, but it's supposed to be a big beautiful bass book, not a big beautiful Geddy or Rush book.  Get over yourselves already (fat chance).  The guy is an obsessive (like Neil) and he collects things--baseballs, wine, whatever. He managed to get a great collection together in a short time and he probably knows about every one of them intimately--the book is for similar-minded bass freaks.  And I'd go to a signing/stay on line however long I have to if I get to just say "hey, remember me?  My buddy almost spilled his drink on your shoe!"  That would be fun.  Probably not happening though--it would be a cluster-f.

If there is a book signing, that would be for regular copies, unless you'd want your limited super-deluxe version signed twice.
