Rolling Stone Readers Select Geddy Lee as #4 Best Bassist of All Time
Readers of Rolling Stone Magazine were asked to select the best bassist of all time in order to form a 'Top Ten Best of' list. Geddy Lee came in at #4:If Geddy Lee's only role in Rush was to play the bass he'd be unbelievably accomplished. The fact that he does it while singing and playing keyboards proves that the man is almost a freak of nature. Few singers in the history of rock could have handled this triple duty. The group has occasionally flirted with the idea of adding a fourth member to their stage show to ease Lee's load, but they always decide that fans only want to see the three members of Rush onstage. He manages it all by playing bass pedals during his keyboard parts. The band is currently performing their 1980 LP Moving Pictures on a world tour.Rounding out the top 3 were 3) Paul McCartney (The Beatles), 2) Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and 1) John Entwistle (The Who).
