Watch: Geddy Lee Talks With Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic At Seattle’s Book Tour Stop

November 27, 2023

Rush singer Geddy Lee’s is touring his new book, “My Effin’ Life In Conversation”, and recently stopped at Seattle, Washington’s Moore Theatre (Friday night, November 24). There are 14 stops on the tour (produced by Live Nation), which wraps up in Lee’s hometown of Toronto, at Massey Hall on December 7.

While at the Moore Theatre, Lee told fans about his life; deep reflection of his family and childhood, to the incredible history of his band, Rush. He talked about his lifelong friends and bandmates, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart and was joined on stage by special guest interviewer, Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic!

Lee read passages from his book, “My Effin’ Life”, shared thoughts and stories from his experiences, and took fan questions with a special question-and-answer session.

As you know, Novoselic is featured in Lee’s new docuseries: Are bass players human, too? Lee visits Novoselic and other bass players Melissa Auf Der Maur of Hole, Robert Trujillo of Metallica and Les Claypool of Primus, too!

“Geddy Lee Asks: Are Bass Players Human Too?” will stream on Paramount+ as of December 5.

You can get Lee’s book, “My Effin’ Life”, as a hardcover or as an e-book.

Lee was recently interviewed by The Toronto Star and asked if he had any regrets, “I do have regrets. I regret how much time I spent away from my son. I regret what I put my wife through and how much she had to carry. And that plays into where I’m at now. I will not do anything without her consideration. Our time together is untouchable.”

But, no career regrets, “I was the luckiest effin’ guy to be able to work with the greatest partners and play the exact kind of music we wanted to play and get away with it for over 40 years.”

This book tour is cool! Which musician do you wish would write a book and tour it?
