“I’ve been working on this book for just over two years now, and it’s been great fun — it’s been passion project for me. And it’s been very good for my head. And, in a way, it was really a good break from everything that was going down with RUSH and from the end of that [last] tour, and it threw me into another obsession, which was educational, in terms of learning about my instrument, but also in terms of learning about making a book and what’s involved. So I enjoyed that.

One thought on “Geddy Lee: Neil Peart ‘Hasn’t Just Retired From Rush; He’s Retired From Drumming’ – Blabbermouth.net”
Bought the ebook edition of Geddy’s Big Beautiful Book of Bass today (substantially less expensive — and weighing much less — than the print edition). It’s a labor of love and a music geek’s dream, with great photography, all the obsessive attention to detail you’d expect and great interviews with other seminal bassists (John Paul Jones, Adam Clayton, Bill Wyman, etc.).
