Geddy Lee, renowned as one of the most respected bassists in rock and roll history, has been a foundational force in the Canadian progressive rock band Rush for almost five decades. His memoir offers a first-hand glimpse into his life both within and beyond the band. Born Gershon Eliezer Weinrib, named after his grandfather who perished in the Holocaust, Lee's journey from his early days to stardom is a compelling narrative.
Before Rush achieved a record-breaking streak of gold and platinum albums, surpassing all rock bands except the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and before their seven Grammy nominations and worldwide electrifying performances, Lee's life was marked by his family's harrowing history during World War II. His memoir delves into his deep familial bonds, especially his parents who survived the atrocities of the war.
Lee opens up about his childhood, his early passion for music that led him to leave high school, and the subsequent rise of Rush from initial struggles to becoming a globally adored rock band. He shares personal anecdotes of his enduring friendships with bandmates Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart, including his profound grief over Peart’s recent death. His memoir, woven with honesty, humor, and a touch of sorrow, stands out as a uniquely moving account of his life and career.
