Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert DeLeo was a recent guest on AXS TV's Rock & Tell, where he showed off the Big Book of Bass Deluxe Edition that he received as a gift from Rush's Geddy Lee. He also chatted with hostess Katie Daryl about his Rush fandom for a few minutes, before showing off some of his other prized rock memorabilia. You can watch the entire episode below or on YouTube at this location (thanks Brave Words):

... I'm a huge fan of Rush and Geddy Lee as a bassist. Geddy sent me his Big Beautiful Book of Bass which is a great book of his collection. And this is quite an honor getting this from one of the people that literally pointed the direction to where I am today. And I'm grateful for this. Thank you Geddy ...
