Rush’s Geddy Lee will visit Atlanta to sign copies of new book

Rush frontman Geddy Lee is hailing his beloved instrument – the bass – in a new book, “Geddy Lee’s Big Beautiful Book of Bass,” and will be in Atlanta to sign copies of it.

The singer/musician for the Canadian rock trio will visit A Capella Books in Midtown at 3 p.m. July 20. Tickets are $90 and includes a copy of the book (which sells for $75 on the band’s site), which Lee will sign. Tickets for the 3 p.m. line have sold out, but a second round of signing is available 4 p.m. Tickets, which are required, can be purchased via or in person at A Capella Books (no ticket fees!).

The 408-page “…Book of Bass” includes profiles of more than 200 classic basses from Lee’s collection and includes rare photos and interviews with top bassists and collectors. 

A few guidelines:

Admission to the signing line requires buying a new book through A Capella Books.

Guests are limited to two books per purchase; please do not have more than one other person in line with you.

A Cappella Books is not large, therefore most people in line will be spending some time outside while waiting. In July. In Atlanta. You do the math. Plan accordingly.

Lee will only personalize books (no signatures only) and will not sign any memorabilia. 

Parking in the area is extremely limited. Ride share is recommended, or a walk from the Marta stations at Inman Park or Little Five Points.
