Had the opportunity to meet the legend tonight and pick up his book... it is 10lbs of awesomeness.
Geddy's got some cool glasses!
He has such a high voice. Does he talk like an ordinary guy?
High School 1974
So raw Rush!
Back when Geddy still had the cat lady look.
Alex Liefson is a great guitar player!
And of course their first drummer John Rutsey R.I.P.
I have watched a few interviews from this book tour. I think he's always interesting to listen to. He's still in awe of his heros like any of his fans.
I've read Neil Ps book about his motorcycle ride after his daughter and wife died. What is Lee's book about?
Basses and bass players mostly, from what I gather.
"I've met him, and he does"
Also, +100 cool points for the "Le Studio" shirt.
How awesome is that!
Yes I met him a few weeks ago at the London book signing (£60) - though I would more call it a walk by than a meeting
I asked him if he would sign my bass pickguard
He said no he couldn't do that
Perhaps I should have downloaded all his music and videos over the years instead of paying cash for them
Anyway he tried to fist pump me so I left him hanging.
Nothing like loosing respect for your heroes
It's a good thing I'm not famous , I would be really bad at it......!
The first guy to hold up a guitar or a piece of guitar towards me for an autograph would get punched in the face.......
Selfie , handshake.....,uhm , how about no ?
This is the Bad Dog. In the future when you meet an icon, just use the first name, and instead of calling it buwk signing say you "hung out" with them...
There may have been rules about what he can sign at a book signing.
Agreed. A true rock rebel would never sign his name without permission from a book seller
Yeah, it’s one thing signing a piece of paper, ticket stub, or maybe even a setlist - things fans are less likely to sell or buy. But something like a pickguard could end up on eBay next day. He doesn’t know some random fan from Adam. Why should he trust you with his signature? Sorry, but there are far more worse things a hero can do than not sign a fan’s pickguard.
It is too easy to take that pickguard & turn it into something it isn't by bolting it to a random axe. That is likely why he didn't do it. At least, that is what Rick Derringer told me when I tried to get him to sign one for me. He also said I should have brought an album or an old juke box 45, instead. Those are generally okay to sign.
You forget- Geddy Lee is Canadian.
Well... I'm sorry some people didn't like my post. I guess that's to be expected these days... Also sorry for the huge pictures, I had just gotten home from a long day and was excited. I have absolutely no shame about admitting that. If it makes me an uncool guy, I'm OK with that. Think what you want.
As for the signing itself, yeah, it was more of a "fly-by" but I was happy to meet him, happy to support his massive effort to document important instruments for the gear geeks like me who appreciate them, and glad I was able to say - in person - "thank you for your music."
As for the rules of the signing, yes... there were many:
Thanks for looking...
Do they bubble wrap the tv before throwing it out of the hotel window
I dug the pics, personally
