Rush's Geddy Lee Announce Signing Events

(hennemusic) Rush frontman Geddy Lee has announced the first pair of in-store signing events to launch his forthcoming project, "Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book Of Bass."

Due December 18 via Harper Design, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, the book celebrates the history of the instrument alongside Lee's personal collection of vintage electric bass guitars, which dates from the 1950s to the 1980s.

For the past seven years, the Rush rocker has expanded his knowledge of the instrument while collecting hundreds of basses from around the globe, with 250 presented in detail with specially- commissioned photography by Richard Sibbald.

Representing every tone in the bass palette, every nuance of the rock and roll genre as well as blues, jazz, pop, and country, this one-of-a-kind collection features so-called "beauty queens" - pristine instruments never lifted from their cases - as well as "road warriors" - well-worn, sweat-soaked basses that proudly show their age and use.

"It's not surprising that, sooner or later, I'd dive down the proverbial rabbit hole into the world of vintage bass guitars," says Lee.

On the eve of the book's release, Lee will appear at Toronto's IndigoSpirit at First Canadian Place on Monday, December 17 at noon (tickets available here), before hosting a similar session at Bookends in Ridgewood, NJ on Tuesaday, December 18 at 5:00 pm Read more here.

Singled Out: Johnny Gioeli's One Voice

Johnny Gioeli is releasing his new solo album "One Voice" this week (Dec 7th) and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the title track. Here is the story:

This is my first solo album and the title track called "One Voice"
After a young man in my hometown was rendered paralyzed in a diving accident, I decided I needed to help in any way I could. The idea of One Voice was created when I involved the fans in a Pledge Music campaign to raise money for Joe barber and spinal cord injury awareness. I was blown away when thousands of fans worldwide donated to a kid they didn't even know. Why....because people are good. Despite what we read and see, there are people around this globe that care. I proved it with this campaign.

One Voice says it all...it's a song of hope, unity, and love in a world that at times feels divide and confusion. "We are One Voice together, we are love hope forever". When we come together we are strong. Yes, it's been said before in many different ways, but needed to be said again but much louder. I made it MUCH LOUDER.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
