Geddy Lee, renowned singer/bassist of the legendary rock band Rush, brought his “My Effin’ Life In Conversation” tour to Seattle’s Moore Theatre on November 24. The tour, based on Lee’s recently released memoir “My Effin’ Life,” provides fans with insights into his life, spanning reflections on family, childhood, the history of RUSH, and the pursuit of music. Joined on stage by special guest interviewer Krist Novoselic, the bassist of Nirvana, Lee read excerpts from his memoir, shared personal experiences, and engaged in a Q&A session with the audience.
The “My Effin’ Life In Conversation” tour, produced by Live Nation, includes 14 cities across North America and concludes in Lee’s hometown of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, at Massey Hall on December 7. The memoir, “My Effin’ Life,” edited by Noah Eaker, was released on November 14 and is available in hardcover and e-book formats.
In addition to his tour and memoir, Geddy Lee has collaborated with Krist Novoselic on a docuseries titled “Geddy Lee Asks: Are Bass Players Human Too?” The series explores the lives of bass players, including Novoselic, Melissa Auf Der Maur, Robert Trujillo, and Les Claypool. It delves into their worlds beyond music and will be available for streaming exclusively on Paramount+ starting December 5.
In a recent interviewwith the Toronto Star, Geddy Lee expressed regrets about spending too much time away from his son and acknowledged the challenges his wife endured. However, he emphasized his satisfaction with his career, considering himself fortunate to have worked with great partners and played the music he loved for over 40 years with RUSH.
“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.
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,” he explained.
