The address here is not correct. The event will be at Dominion Chalmers (more correctly, at Carleton Dominion-Chalmers Centre), 355 Cooper St. in Ottawa. Tickets are $110 each (includes book)/$115 at door, or $140 for two with one book/$145 at door. If you're a Writers Festival member, the event is free, but doesn't come with a book. Tickets are available in advance from the Writers Festival website <link> One on One </link>.

Alan Neal, from CBC Radio, is scheduled to do the interview. Alan is a terrific interviewer; I'm really looking forward to this. There will also be an audience Q&A after the formal interview.

Geddy will be signing copies of the book afterward. He will not be signing other stuff, so leave your Rush back catalog at home.

Full disclosure -- I'm doing audio at this event, you should come and say hi. I already have a copy of the book, it's great. I've never met Geddy. I own a black '72 Fender Jazz Bass, but not because of him.

A very cool human.

I’ve been a big fan for many years and nothing I’ve seen in recent years has diminished my positive impression.

The National Music Centre still has 26 of his basses, and a copy of his book to flip through, until Jan 6.
If you're anywhere nearby & interested in the basses, it is worth a trip (Plus all the other stuff there)

Or anyone else's.

Thanks for posting that.

I like lots of bands from a wide variety of genres, but if I had to pick just one, the band that impacted me more than any other, it always comes back to Rush.

The documentary “Beyond the Lighted Stage” is an excellent telling of their story.

Great representatives of Canada in my opinion.

I went this summer. Nice collection.

Well you either have a better camera and/or are a better photographer than I am.

I'd like to try those out.

I just read this. If you love bass, or you think you want to get more into basses, this is good. I had a few fleeting moments of desiring more basses.

He states he will get into minute detail, note subtle development, but never really does. He tells a few of the basses' histories, but not for most of them. It would have been a terrible read if he did that, but!

He could release a companion book with more detail, a few more interviews.

I'm waiting for The Gibson Bass Book by Rob van den Broek . And hoping Doug Tulloch's new edition on Danelectros will be out for Christmas . Should probably give Geddy's another read while I'm waiting .
