The Geddy Museum

By -

First, one of the coolest songs of all time:

And for the serious music dorks like myself, one of the coolest bass lines of all time:

And finally, some surprising trivia about Rush’s leading man:

“His parents were Jewish Holocaust survivors from Poland and who had survived the ghetto in their hometown Starachowice, followed by their imprisonments at Auschwitz and later Dachau and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps, during the Holocaust[15][16] and World War II. They were about 13 years old when they were initially imprisoned at Auschwitz. “It was kind of surreal pre-teen shit,” says Lee, describing how his father bribed guards to bring his mother shoes. After a period, his mother was transferred to Bergen-Belsen and his father to Dachau. When the war ended four years later and the Allies liberated the camps, Morris set out in search of Mary and found her at a displaced persons camp. They married there and eventually emigrated to Canada

Another cool thing about Mr. Lee is that this rock star icon has been married since 1976 and has a son and a daughter. Is that wholesome, or what? Here he is with his lovely daughter. God bless ya, Geddy!
