Geddy Lee Interviewed in the December Issue of Classic Rock Magazine

Image
The December 2018 issue of the UK's Classic Rock magazine includes a new, lengthy interview with Geddy Lee. The interview touches upon numerous topics including early influences, Geddy's continuing fascination with bass guitars, his upcoming Big Beautiful Book Of Bass coffee table book, and his various and extensive collections:Remarkably, you've only been collecting bass guitars since 2012, but you've always collected, haven't you?

Tonight's Episode of Fox's animated series Family Guy contained a fairly lengthy Rush reference.

The clip then cuts to a Rush concert where the animated representation of Geddy Lee asks Peter what he's wearing, to which Peter replies "What? These are my concert khakis."

The clip takes an unfortunate turn as Geddy calls for the crowd to "Beat Him! Beat Him in 6/8th time!".

You can view an MP4 video version of the clip by clicking HERE or via the embedded player below.Your browser does not support HTML5 video.
