Geddy announced on Instagram this morning that BBBB DID go into a second printing, which is available now. Someone asked if there would be any UK signing events and he said yep! :ebert: No other mention of other signings anywhere, I guess we can keep our fingers crossed.

Got my copy from amazon (uk) today! Ordered it on 12/31, but boy was it worth the wait :D

Now that the book is available again I'm hoping Ged will announce his UK book tour dates any day now... Am keeping a close eye on his IG feed :popcorn:

Woot!!  I have the book already, as does my brother, He Plays Bass, but I'll buy a few more to get the signed ones!

Yes, I would love to attend one!  I'm still hoping he does another east coast one at some point.  Geddy is usually very accurate on his Instagram account, and that's where he mentioned some signings in the UK and "yes" to one in Chicago.  :ebert:  Time to visit my cousins in Naperville!  :lol:

I'll be at the event in Richmond Hill, it's a full day event with clinics by other musicians. Won't pay for this again.

I told him I was at the Grapes Under Pressure, he said "oh, right, thanks for showing up!". But it was way too quick. He wasn't allowed to sign my Permanent Waves CD... :(

It's like the 'meet and greets', which are 30 seconds long. The book signing is probably 5 seconds long.

Whereas if you attend an event like 'Grapes Under Pressure' where you shell out a huge amount of money, then you have time to talk with your musical heroes more. It's all about 'money' or 'time' and/or both combined isn't it?

Here's something to take note of in Geddy's book tour itinerary.

It doesn't appear that Geddy will be gathering with a group of people doing a 'book signing event' on the 24th of May unless it's perhaps visiting Ben Mink and his family in Vancouver.

I just had to throw a reference in to 'Lakeside Park' for the above. :)

In a sense, he’s already done book signings when he used to hand write reply letters to readers’ questions when he wrote for Modern Drummer or one of those mags back in the 80s.
