Description

The long-awaited memoir from the iconic Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Rush bassist, and bestselling author of Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book of Bass.

Includes two new songs by Geddy Lee, available exclusively in the My Effin’ Life audiobook.

Geddy Lee is one of rock and roll's most respected bassists. For nearly five decades, his playing and work as co-writer, vocalist and keyboardist has been an essential part of the success story of Canadian progressive rock trio Rush. Here for the first time is his account of life inside and outside the band.

Long before Rush accumulated more consecutive gold and platinum records than any rock band after the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, before the seven Grammy nominations or the countless electrifying live performances across the globe, Geddy Lee was Gershon Eliezer Weinrib, after his grandfather murdered in the Holocaust.

As he recounts the transformation, Lee looks back on his family, in particular his loving parents and their horrific experiences as teenagers during World War II.

He talks candidly about his childhood and the pursuit of music that led him to drop out of high school.

He tracks the history of Rush which, after early struggles, exploded into one of the most beloved bands of all time.

He shares intimate stories of his lifelong friendships with bandmates Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart—deeply mourning Peart’s recent passing—and reveals his obsessions in music and beyond.

This rich brew of honesty, humor, and loss makes for a uniquely poignant memoir.

Incredibly Insightful.

Just like their music, this most insightful look at what makes one of Canada’s greatest frontman of one of Canada’s greatest bands of all time tick.

Effin' Amazing

This is one of the best memoirs I've ever read or listened to. And "listening" to this in Geddy's own voice is, in my opinion, the best way to consume this book. (Although I also have the hard copy which contains a lot of great photos). I loved everything about this book! It is so well written and well put together. I just loved listening to Geddy talk about his childhood and his rock & roll life, and just all his fascinating life experiences—both good and bad. I highly recommend this book. Even if you're not a Rush fan, you'll love it.

Bought the print edition as well but love to hear the whole story from Mr. Lee himself.

A Well Lived Life

Geddy Lee narrates his memoir with grace and ease. I highly recommend you read or listen or both! I didn’t want this audio book to end, but when it does the listening is rewarded with two wonderful “lost” tracks of of his solo album. Thank you Geddy for sharing your life, what a life it is!

Simply captivating

This book was a perfect chronological journey of Geddy’s life and the band. Funny, witty and extremely well spoken by the man himself. I didn’t want it to end…

Great book!

Wonderful autobiography! And having it read so beautifully by the author himself, it felt like I was enjoying little visits by Getty while driving to work, relaxing on a Sunday afternoon or whenever I was able to open audible and listen for awhile.

Heartfelt

Wow! To start I must admit I am the ultimate Rush fan although I am sure that everyone reading this feels the same about themselves. I’m 61 years old and began listening to Rush in my early teens, putting it back to shortly after the term when the band began producing its first couple of albums. Been to lots of their concerts, read every single book ever written on or by Rush including Neil Peart’s books. Every little bit of trivia I can read on the group is locked into my cranial vault. I love Rush. Having said that, Getty‘s book is not just another Rush book. Sure it has a few bits and pieces in it on their albums but it’s really more of a human story. I particularly love the ending chapters where he relays his Experiences of getting older and dealing with the death of Neil and other friends. And his wonderful relationship with his grandson. Getty, through this book, has helped me mature a bit. Yeah, I’m kind of old myself, but I needed some maturity lessons from a guy as well balanced as him. You can achieve lots of success in your life - and I have. But at the end of the day, all that matters in life is the people. Thank you Getty, for pointing this in an even more poignant manner than I would have figured out on my own. What a wonderful book and a wonderful story. I can’t endorse this book enough. Almost an essential guide to life.
