Geddy Lee has been awfully busy since the end of Rush. There was his Big Beautiful Book of Bass and his new memoir My Effin’ Life, which is coming November 14. Now he’s at the centre of a new Paramount+ docuseries entitled Geddy Lee Asks: Are Bass Players Human, Too? It will debut December 5.
Produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and Toronto’s Banger Films (the same company that did the Headbanger’s series, Hip-Hop Revolution, docs on ZZ Top, Iron Maiden, and Alice Cooper, as well as the Rush doc Beyond the Lighted Stage), the new series features Geddy sitting down with some of the most famous bassists on the planet. The producer is Allan Weinrib, who just happens to be Geddy’s filmmaker brother.
Like who? Metallica’s Robert Trujillo. Les Claypool from Primus. Melissa Auf Der Mauf (ex Hole, Smashing Pumpkins). Krist Novoselic from Nirvana. The series is a spin-off from the interviews he did for Big Beautiful Book of Bass.
Here’s a trailer.
