As we patiently wait for more accumulation in our local mountains to truly kick off the season of snow, let's review Geddy Lee's solid advice on how to best enjoy one of Canada's most beloved winter pastimes - tobogganing.

Tobogganing isn't the only thing Geddy's up to this winter - the Rush bassist's new book will be available in stores on December 18th, but you can also preorder it here

Hey! Guess what? I wrote a book! No, not about birds... It's about basses, basses, and more basses! Amongst the 408 pages of glorious photos, there are facts, opinions, a bit of history and cool interviews with some awesome bassfolk. It’s big and beautiful and features around 250 instruments from my collection of vintage basses, including all my trusty stage gear. It took me forever, but I think it’s turned out pretty effin’ cool and I can't wait to share it with you all this December! There are various supercool editions you can pre-order: for vintage bass nerds, or their pals who want to gift them, or Rush fans who want to get up close to the instruments they've seen and heard for over 4 decades! Really hope you dig it!
